Job Description

You’ll be a key member of our Spend Better pillar that is responsible for ensuring our users improve their spending habits, and are starting to save what they can. You will be looking at 0-1 product opportunities and going from ideation and concept stage to validating and testing key assumptions, and designing, testing and building an MVP that can then scale if successful. 

Outcome 1: Test, validate and build product MVPs 

  • Work collaboratively with your cross functional squad to come up with concepts that resonate with the target audience
  • Understand the key financial assumptions we need to test and validate to ensure that the product could be significantly revenue additive at scale
  • Decide on scope and trade-offs to get MVPs out to users for the most promising concepts and ensure success criteria are established and evaluated

Outcome 2:  Scale up a successful MVP

  • Work with commercial finance, operations/partnerships to understand lead times and dependencies for scaling an MVP to a larger number of users
  • Align with marketing on value props for acquiring new users to the product
  • Continue to validate key assumptions as the product scales and continuously iterate on the product based on learnings

  • Work collaboratively with your product squad and involve them in strategy and decision-making 
  • Bring creativity into how we approach financial products. We're radically changing how people interact with and feel about their finances. This means thinking about problems in a different way, and we encourage PMs from all backgrounds to apply.
  • Bring energy and drive to ensure your product is successful. People would describe you as a force of nature who cares about their team

How long will the process take?

We aim to move as fast as possible. Usually 2-3 weeks is enough time for us all to get to know each other.
