Job Description

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 lines for our fast growing customers who are facing challenges with the increased scale and complexity of their business operations. These teams not only need to launch zero-to-one products, but also build strong businesses from those initial offerings. We are obsessively focused on delivering a high quality end-to-end experience and believe Mercury should be magical from day one, whether running a single e-commerce side hustle or scaling a unicorn tech company.

We are looking for Senior Product Managers who can build with a high bar for quality while still executing with precision. In this role, you’ll be responsible for deeply understanding your customers, designing how your product area interacts with and impacts the other Mercury products and end-to-end system, and driving towards the overarching business and financial goals. 

*Mercury is a financial technology company, not a bank. Banking services provided by Choice Financial Group and Evolve Bank & Trust, Members FDIC.


  • Set the direction and define prioritized roadmaps for the team; ensuring we’re focused  on work that solves customer problems and maximizes business value
  • Independently lead and drive product initiatives for your team
  • Own the strategy and execution of your product area within Mercury and regularly present your work to company leadership
  • Contribute to the visioning, sequencing, and execution of a multi-phased approach to build not only a product, but also a business line
  • Run team meetings and direct product team operations collaboratively with your engineering counterpart, tech leads, designers, user researchers, and data scientist 
  • Work in ambiguity and be able to set and achieve priorities that find the perfect balance between both customer and business needs
  • Partner with Mercury’s design team to define and enforce a set of quality and craft
  • Translate qualitative and quantitative data and derive insights that inform product work; communicate these with the team
  • Proactively discover and define opportunities to level up the craft, strategy, and execution of our broader Expansion team

We’re looking for a motivated product leader who cares deeply about craft and feels energized by opportunities to work on ambiguous, new product areas. A successful candidate will likely have: 

  • 7+ years of relevant product management experience, preferably working with vertical products with some amount of P&L accountability.
  • The ability to operate independently to turn ambiguous and complex problems into concrete vision, strategy, and execution plans. 
  • Enthusiasm about the idea of working with talented (and opinionated) design and engineering peers. 
  • The ability to take complex problems from end to end (contributing to research, design, engineering, GTM, and stakeholder management) autonomously. 

The total rewards package at Mercury includes base salary, equity (stock options), and benefits.

Our salary and equity ranges are highly competitive within the SaaS and fintech industry and are updated regularly using the most reliable compensation survey data for our industry. New hire offers are made based on a candidate’s experience, expertise, geographic location, and internal pay equity relative to peers.

Our target new hire base salary ranges for this role are the following:

  • US employees (any location): $203,100 - $238,900 USD
  • Canadian employees (any location): CAD 184,800 - 217,400
