Investment Team (remote) – Product Owner
Yova is the leading digital platform for investing with a sustainability impact. Through the Yova platform, people can invest their money in companies that represent the causes they care about (like sustainability, gender equity, etc.) – without sacrificing returns along the way. Yova stands for “your values” and we’re on a mission to take impact investing mainstream.
As a Product Owner of Yova’s Investment Office Suite, you will work at the heart of the Yova asset management. Your backend-heavy application landscape is responsible for investing and managing 1000s of customer accounts and processing millions of trades per month. You will work closely with our dedicated Tech team as well as our Investment Management team to ship new features and rapidly scale existing ones.
Specifically, you will own:
The Yova portfolio engine. This is the heart of Yova’s portfolio generation and a worldwide unique piece of technology. The Yova engine is the algorithm that automatically generates stock-level impact investing portfolios based on a user’s personal values and investor profile.
The investment office suite. In order to manage thousands of portfolios at the same time, a high degree of automation is needed. The Yova investment office suite (“Suite Caroline”) is our answer to many finance professionals’ opinion that “stock-level portfolio management cannot possibly be automated”. The investment office suite is characterised by a large degree of complexity and interdependencies.
The trading API connections to several transaction banks. Once the trades are generated, they need to be placed at our transaction banks. Our API currently connects to 1 bank – by the end of 2021, it will be 3.
You will also support the investment management team in creating their own Python tools to monitor and review the results of the portfolio management.

- Are an experienced product owner (3+ years experience)
- Have a strong understanding of web technology, especially backend-heavy one
- Have outstanding analytical and conceptual abilities
