Westpac · Sydney

Jnr Product Manager

The Global Transaction Services team, within Westpac's Institutional Bank, explores, creates and manages the newest trends and technologies (mobility, digital payments, big data, etc.) that are then applied to solve real-world customer challenges. We're after a fantastic Junior Product Manager to help us with the migration of 1000 customers to a new product, and liaise with internal stakeholders to ensure it is completed.


The main benefit from Hatch is having exceptionally talented Hatch students take on defined projects and delivering outcomes for what would otherwise be impossible to do.
