But excelling as product counsel requires a mindshift: we also engage in daily problem-solving, but our aim–like the engineers who designed the first tower of the Brooklyn Bridge–is not to solve problems and move on to the...

Casuistry is a method of moral reasoning pioneered by Jesuit thinkers, beginning with St. Ignatius 500 years ago, which asks one to “Set aside principles. Descend into the particulars”. This is not about abandoning your principles. Instead, it pushes on the order in which you call your principles into the reasoning process. Approach the problem as its own unique situation that requires your attention and care.  In the Mercury product world, instead of starting with a general rule or philosophy that guides the way a PM investigates a problem, we push to find out exactly what is going on in the life and heart and mind of a customer in order to truly understand the nature of the problems they are facing.  Mercury is a collection of incredibly helpful, creative, humble humans working together to defy expectations and reimagine banking. We do so with a focus on building high-craft, simple, and powerful product experiences.  And our Expansion team is building the newest product...

In the outskirts of Mexico City, he combined his background of agricultural research and theoretical knowledge with careful experimentation and diligent data collection to run over 6,000 experiments - and he was ultimately successful, kicking off the “Green Revolution” that increased global crop yields by an estimated 44% and earned him a Nobel Prize.  At Mercury, we’re looking to seed our team with candidates who can use their background in analytics applied with product development to accelerate the adoption of Mercury.
