Product Manager - Platform Services

Who we are

We are not your standard bank, we are an innovation hub. We are part of the team that launched Chase as a new UK bank in 2021, and are now starting on a new initiative with big ambitions. More details will be provided during the interview but for now we can enthusiastically say: It’s challenging, it’s high stakes, it’s fun!

Our team is at the heart of building this new venture, focused on developing products that put the customer at the center. We have created a new organization with diverse professionals that come from a wide set of skills, backgrounds and experiences, including b2b and b2c businesses.

Team members have broad autonomy to collaborate and work in a cross-functional way and we value your opinion in every matter; so if you are a designer and you want to write Python code - please do! Or an engineer and want to do user testing - go for it! Teams own their work end-to-end and we have a flat organizational structure.

Our inclusive culture is hugely important to us and we are looking for intellectually curious, compassionate people who would like to expand their skills whilst working on a new exciting venture for the firm. We are about bringing new products to market that solve real world problems for real life customers, not just innovation for the sake of innovation. We are human first; we love working with each other, and we need personal connections and in-person bonding. We find we are happier, more motivated and more productive this way. If this sounds like something that you would like to be a part of we'd encourage you to read on and apply, even if the job description isn't an exact match for you, we can promise to review your application and let you know if there is anything that might be suitable in the future!
