About Lendable


Lendable is on a mission to make consumer finance amazing: faster, cheaper and friendlier. We’re building one of the world’s leading fintech companies and are off to a strong start:

  • One of the UK’s newest unicorns with a team of >150 people
  • Among the top 10 fastest growing tech companies in the UK
  • Profitable since 2017
  • Backed by top investors including Balderton Capital and Goldman Sachs
  • Loved by customers with the best reviews in the market (4.8/5 across 10,000s of reviews)

So far, we’ve rebuilt the Big Three consumer finance products from scratch: loans, credit cards and car finance. We get money into our customers’ hands in minutes instead of days.We’re growing fast, and there’s a lot more to do: we’re going after the two biggest Western markets (UK and US) where trillions worth of these are held by big banks with dated systems and painful processes. 

Join us if you want to:

  • Work in small teams of exceptional people, trusted to take ownership and make decisions quickly
  • Be relentlessly resourceful to solve problems and find smarter solutions than the status quo
  • Build the best technology in house, using new data sources, machine learning and AI to make machines do the heavy lifting

The role in a Nutshell

We’re looking for an experienced, smart and analytical person to be a Product Manager (PM) for our car finance brand. You will report to Giulia (Product) and will take day-to-day ownership of our Autolend product.

You will be working alongside one other PM to shape the product roadmap, own the product delivery and work hand in hand with various departments to prioritise projects according to their maximum impact. It is your job to break down complex tasks into bite sized deliverables. We have some of the best engineers in the industry and we need you to help us showcase their talent to the world.

Since launching our Autolend proposition last year, we are now working on scaling our proposition exponentially. These growth ambitions are supported by the build and launch of new product propositions and brand partnerships. We are also leveraging our experience in personal loans to continuously improve the customer journey, optimising for conversion and speed.

It will be your job to support the build of these new initiatives, taking into account any necessary improvements to our infrastructure to ensure our principles of resilience and excellence are maintained on the platform.

Experience:

  • 3+ years of work experience years as Product Manager

  • 2+ years of work experience in an analytical role within Investment Banking, Tech, or Management Consulting

  • Exposure to software development desired

What you'll Be Doing:

  • Managing the delivery of our Autolend product propositions

  • Working alongside the MD of Motor Finance and Group Product Manager to define the product roadmap

  • Working closely with engineers to break down large complex epics into smaller manageable tasks

  • Testing and measuring the impact of new releases and experiments

  • Liaising across teams (data science, customer service, developers etc) to crystallise intent for new features

  • Ensuring our customers’ needs are always at the heart of what we’re building



How you’ll impact the Product Team objectives:

  • Autonomy; you are comfortable managing a product line
    • Prioritizing product features independently

    • Creating new features based on discussions and requirements from the wider business

    • Running standups and weekly planning sessions with the engineering team

    • Deep collaboration with other business teams, allowing you to make many small decisions that impact features within the product

    • Engineering mindset so you’re able to optimise developer time for maximum business impact

    • Identifying bottlenecks early and can work out the dependencies that may block the product development well ahead of time

  • Problem solving; consistently breaking down complex business problems into bite sized chunks. Complex tasks don’t intimidate you and you are able to break down a complex problem into parts

  • Analysis; you have experience with numerical analysis - at least excel, ideally some coding too. We will teach you the tools (SQL), but you need to feel very comfortable with numbers. You have used data to drive real-world actions

  • Communication and leadership skills; you can communicate clearly and succinctly, orally and in writing; you enjoy a lively discussion. You effortlessly adjust your communication to suit your audience, from business owners to engineers. You don’t have a massive ego and you are happy to change your mind when presented with a good argument

  • Collaboration; you have established close relationships with key stakeholders across data science, developers, compliance, customer service allowing you to quickly assemble cross functional teams for product delivery

  • Working at speed; you make things happen. You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves and take responsibility for implementation and design decisions. You work at speed and enjoy a healthy dose of pressure

  • Process management; a solid understanding of the software development life cycle and how product can support each stage

  • Agility; not just Agile (Scrum or Kanban would be nice) but adaptability to thrive in an unstructured, fast-moving and constantly evolving high growth environment

Interview process

  • CV screening

  • A Quick introduction call with someone from the Talent Team

  • A phone call with a product manager of the team

  • A take-home exercise to complete in your own time + take home debrief

  • Final round:

  1. CPO

  2. Managing Director (MD) of Motor Finance

  3. Cultural Interview with some wider team leads

  4. Group Product Manager
