Sylvia Mwangi

Product Manager

What career & life path led you to working at OneVest?

I started my career in the banking industry as a process engineer working on enterprise-wide projects before I transitioned to working on intelligent automation projects as a process owner. I love working in the financial industry - there is so much room for impact especially through financial inclusion - and thus the opportunity at OneVest was a perfect merge of an industry I am passionate about and a career path I am interested in.

What do you do at OneVest?

I work as a Product Manager and the variety of what my day-to-day holds makes my job more exciting. I mainly lead the delivery of products and features that help both us (through our OneVest app) and our partners deliver value to clients in their investment journey. I derive a lot of fulfillment from seeing projects on our roadmap move through the opportunity discovery process to implementation. I also enjoy the learning process especially the tech stack since I work with developers a lot.

What is your favourite part about working at OneVest?

My favourite part about working at OneVest is the team's collaborative nature. I not only get to work with the product team but also other groups hence developing an all-rounded perspective on all that goes into our products and services. Everyone is also committed to delivering the best quality of work which is so motivating and makes each day a joy!

What do you do outside of work?

I am an avid reader of books, each year I try and select themes or key groups of authors and read books that are aligned to that. Having recently moved to Calgary, I am currently enjoying hiking at Banff and Jasper National Parks as well as skiing in winter. I also enjoy travelling and in another world I would probably choose to be a marine biologist due to my love for oceans - the Indian Ocean would be my first choice.
