Contract Description

Senior Product Manager - Contractor

Funding Options are looking for a talented Product Manager to help reimagine and reinvent how small businesses discover and access the right financial products for their needs.

We started life in 2012 with a simple but powerful idea. What if instead of going to the bank, businesses could search for financial products online just like consumers do for car insurance or hotels? Since then we've helped our customers raise millions, won a host of industry awards, and gained the backing of the government. Funding Options is also one of the fastest-growing fintech companies on one metric that counts - revenue.

We’ve just secured further investment from ING Ventures, launched our first international product, and now, about to embark on the next step of our exciting journey. This is a unique opportunity to join our scale-up and shape the way we build products, working directly with our Chief Product Officer, Alastair.
