Job Description


BUX is a tech start-up that’s rockin’ the world of finance. We make the financial markets fun, exciting and accessible to everyone by gamifying it. Launched in September 2014 BUX has gained over 900,000 users already! After our successful launch in the UK and the Netherlands, followed by Germany, Austria, Italy and the Scandinavian region, BUX is rolling out in Spain right now.

We help newbies to discover and explore the world of stock trading in a risk-free way by offering them the opportunity to trade with our virtual currency, called funBUX. Once they’re ready, they can upgrade to trading with real money by setting up a seriousBUX account. The app, available on both iOS and Android, combines the stock markets with gaming and social elements to deliver a dynamic experience that keeps users engaged 24/7. At BUX, you’ll  find an international team, based in the historical heart of Amsterdam at walking distance from Central Station.



To strengthen the Product team, we’re on the lookout for a passionate Product Owner, a multi-talented self-starter, who continuously optimizes the customer experience of the BUX app with the goal to increase KPIs such as activation, engagement, retention, and referrals. Reporting to the Chief Product Officer, you will work directly with the development team, product design, data analysis and customer service to coordinate activities and facilitate efficient communication.
