The team is focused on building products that will be a significant benefit to clients and complement PIMCO's asset management services and expertise. This fast growing and innovative "start-up" is seeking a Digital Product Manager who will contribute broadly to the client servicing platform (called PIMCO Pro) in addition to having a focus in digital products and services related to separates, fund accounts, alternatives and other investment types. In partnership with the business and subject matter experts, the Product Manager will be responsible for product strategy, managing a multi-year digital product vision, and driving forward the build and maintenance of digital products.

In addition, candidates will be comfortable with financial concepts including portfolio construction, asset allocation, and risk management and financial planning concepts including social security planning and retirement de-accumulation.
