  • Lead engagement efforts with regulators and other relevant external partners.
  • Set business line KPIs/OKRs and regularly engage in performance analysis, specifically to analyse the successful completion of short and long-term goals.

Qualifications:

  • 10+ years of experience in the listed derivatives space with a focus on bringing innovative products to market.
  • Experience with financial exchange operations.
  • Proven track record of delivering production software in an agile development environment.
  • Demonstrated experience and knowledge from working with the Monetary Authority of Singapore or in other regulated spaces.
  • Excellent organisational skills, attention to detail, and proven ability to manage complex projects.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, proven experience driving product and business decisions.
  • Team-oriented and demonstrated willingness to roll up sleeves and get into the weeds of a project.
  • Understanding of the cryptocurrency exchange trading ecosystem and its evolution over the past 5 years.
  • Familiarity with cryptocurrency protocol technology.
  • Experience with automated risk management systems and clearing systems.

An Insider's view of Gemini

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Before I started, I was told that taking a job at Gemini was a great idea because of how excited everyone was to be there. After working here for more than two years, I still believe that to be true. The office is constantly buzzing with incredibly smart people who are working to build Gemini into the long-lasting business we know it can be.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

A risk team is typically seen as a group that says "no”; at Gemini, establishing relationships and collaborating are key to understanding risks, which better enables us to say "yes" (or "yes, but..."). Communicating clearly and regularly, keeping things simple, and being flexible in a complex space reduces the risk of a message being lost.

Head of Risk

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

When we start a project, I challenge my team to look outside of the finance space, to take inspiration from other creative spaces such as art, industrial design, fashion, automotive, etc., and try to translate that into a solution for our industry and users. It's important to set the tone that solutions to problems can come from anyone or anywhere.
