SICPA - Together with you we achieve excellence!



Product lead



Leveraging decades of expertise in security inks and solutions, SICPA is building the next generation of trust-enabling security systems for citizens, central banks and governments in the domains of digital currency, identity and value chains.

This is a great opportunity to join a strategic project and work with a team of passionate people to design, architect and develop innovative solutions.





  • Become an integral part of a multi-disciplinary team working closely with talented, passionate individuals tackling wicked problems to build the trust architectures of tomorrow’s society.
  • Shape product propositions across development stages, from POC-to-MVP-to-GA.
  • Lead the business model definition and diversification, collaborating with the wider product community to drive innovative approaches in an emerging marketplace.
  • Define product positioning and portfolio mapping with rigorous research and structured documentation.
  • Quantify opportunities, scope market offerings and advance community thinking around digital currency as a product proposition.
  • Drive and manage the product roadmap, forging strategic partnerships along the way.
  • Build strategic propositions with the best available data, and you are not afraid to gather it yourself, either by crunching numbers, or by doing first-person interviews and original research.
  • You don't want to just get paid to deliver something cool; you want to make the world a better place.





  • You have a positive, can-do attitude, you bring new ideas and you are a fast learner.
  • You have track record in startup or corporate innovation environments, covering all aspects of early-stage product development from problem definition-to-MVP-to-Beta-to-GA.
  • You have proven experience mapping problems to remedies in the digital and/or financial domain, developing feature packs, stand-alone products and/or portfolios, delivering compelling documentation alongside.
  • You bring familiarity with mobile, IoT and/or payments and are able to nourish the teams around you with your knowledge.
  • You have a history of working closely with market and vision owners to translate customer needs into tangible results. You master market demand side, but also enjoy field-work gathering first-hand information that is otherwise not available.
  • You have the know-how to craft the product supply side and channel strategy to be sustainable, resilient and defensible in highly competitive environments.
  • Besides being a great listener, you are an educator that acts as a mentor to team members to improve their skills.
  • You are an exceptional communicator able to explain and influence a broad audience - from highly technical to managerial – on subjects like product structure, business models, defensible positioning and long-term, win-win collaboration across both public and private sectors.
  • You thrive in asynchronous communication environments and can express clearly your ideas and thinking, both speaking and in writing.
  • You are comfortable to work in a fuzzy problem space, and enjoy translating initial experiments into requirements, and can map these to a holistic system view.
  • You’re fluent in English (French is an asset).



We offer an exciting and challenging role, with great potential for personal development within a unique organization in a fascinating and fast-growing industry. Your file will be handled with upmost confidentiality and discretion.
