    • You have a solid understanding of how lending products work to generate profit including experience of building and using tools like Customer Lifetime Value and/or Net Present Value modeling and how income and losses are recognized on the P&L

You’ll Spend Your Time

    • Guiding and enabling product teams to measure things that matter; initiate or help run A/B experiments to keep improving everything they do
    • Applying your expertise in quantitative analysis, data mining, and the presentation of data to see beyond the numbers and understand how their users interact with their products and how those insights can inform their product strategy
    • Liaising with engineers to keep making sure they collect the right data to produce relevant product insights
    • Providing insight into various lending markets using quantitative data available and evaluating profitability dynamics within each of the markets to help them decide which products and features to build
    • Assessing how the lending portfolio of particular products will perform over time
    • Ensuring all reporting is in place to allow them to manage their lending portfolio (e.g. credit control reporting, provisioning, monitoring their compliance to Risk Appetite, etc.)
    • Ensuring any changes in KPIs are well understood and explained to stakeholders
    • Ensuring they operate in a well-governed, compliant and customer-centric way
    • Facilitating data-driven decision making whenever possible



The application process consists of a short phone interview, followed by a practical written exercise and then on-site interviews at their office in London.

They care deeply about inclusive working practices and diverse teams. If you’d prefer to work part-time or as a job-share, we’ll facilitate this wherever they can – whether to help you meet other commitments or to help you strike a great work-life balance. They’re keen to ensure we’re designing a bank that works for everyone, so they particularly encourage applications from different underrepresented demographics.
