About Yan

A seasoned financial services professional looking for a stellar engineer to build a product that changes the entire industry.

The sales engagement process in the institutional financial services space is decidedly broken. I believe that we can change the industry so that the sales engagement process is much more natural and organic, resulting in financial products that are much cheaper, and ultimately, a better return for investors.

What I bring:
- Leadership: I believe in leading with strong values and manifesting our view with our product and services. I believe in work that changes the status quo.
- Experience: 10 years of financial services experience with deep understanding of the flows of capital in the industry.
- Hunger: I believe in seeking asymmetric risk/reward, not just taking risks.
- Appreciation of the technical art: 2 years as a developer in R/SQL/Sas and 4 years as product manager, I truly appreciate the skills of a great software engineer.

What I am looking for:
- A technical co-founder who is equally hungry to learn, build product, and change an industry.
- A thirst to be a change agent within a very large market
- A vision for a new way of doing business
