As a Product Manager you will manage the product roadmap, conduct user research, and translate insights into actions to drive further engagement with the application.

InspereX was founded to help better connect fixed income participants. We have two applications to help with sourcing and distribution: BondNav and Incapnet. BondNav is a fixed income aggregator for wealth advisers and portfolio managers, helping them find, vet, and purchase desirable bonds at desirable prices.
