About the job

Your purpose will be to develop the borrower product for UK business customers, ensuring that we deliver brilliant experiences to make access to funding as seamless as possible across our channels. 

This role is at the forefront of growth at Funding Circle - working with engineering, design, marketing, risk, analytics and strategy teams to develop products which improve the customer experience. You’ll translate customer needs into strategy and features, run backlogs, and see your ideas through the product development cycle from start to finish.

Responsibilities

  • Understand and validate the needs of the customer to develop innovative product solutions
  • Lead the team to deliver objectives including managing the development team’s backlog
  • Work with designers and stakeholders to deliver best-in-class customer journeys and experiences
  • Make decisions on scope to deliver value in small increments as quickly as possible
  • Be the go-to person for colleagues, enable fast decision making, keep track of business priorities
  • Analyse data to define, drive & prioritise optimisations and KPIs
Our ideal teammate
  • Product know-how: the ideal candidate will have demonstrable product management experience, preferably B2C, and a track record of delivering products that give the customer what they need
  • Relationship builder: we prefer candidates who demonstrate an ability to build relationships with senior stakeholders, including C-level
  • Proficient communicator: an ability to speak all languages will be useful, that of developers who hate disruption, risk analysts whose requirements are in flux, gregarious sales people, and attention-detailed operations folk
  • Problem solver: we love people who love to solve complex problems, and can turn complexity into simplicity for the borrower and the business alike
  • Willing to challenge: we value those who don’t accept the status quo, who fight to understand the ‘why’, and can get to the bottom of a problem, rather than just accept someone else's solution.
  • Likes fun: we want people to enjoy what the purpose they are here to fulfil, and to motivate teams through the energy they bring
  • Highly empathetic:  appreciates and stands up for what is right, puts the customer first
  • Analytically driven: uses data to inform hypotheses, and is genuinely curious about the results of the tests they are overseeing
