At a glance

Our client is looking for an experienced Product Manager to bolster their growing Product team and help scale their proprietary experience and data platform into a state-of-the-art SaaS for Global Banks and Lenders.

We're looking for candidates that have the experience, drive and determination to own the end-to-end product lifecycle, from inception to delivery – taking an idea from vision to a fully-fledged digital experience.

Who are they?

Our client is turning the traditional lending process on its head – they have strong relationships with more than 80 lenders and hold their credit policies, enabling small businesses to find appropriate lenders in minutes rather than days or weeks. They put small businesses in control of what finance they get and how. Their lenders include the biggest names in alternative finance including Funding Circle, Iwoca, Market Finance and Capital on Tap as well as smaller niche players that offer attractive products to sub-segments of the market.

They have helped 100,000 small businesses understand their finance options by providing their technology to price comparison websites like MoneySuperMarket and Money.co. uk to fuel their business funding channels as well as other partners such as Experian, Sage and Monzo. They've integrated directly into a number of lenders, as well as accountancy packages and open banking platforms, to help them deliver finance to SMEs in as little as 10 minutes.

Half fin, half tech they've closed their series A and they're starting an exciting new chapter offering their services directly into banks, lenders, brokers and industry bodies to transform the end-to-end lending experience for small businesses.
