Job Description

DESCRIPTION

Starling is a bank – but not as you know it. We have built a bank that will change banking and it’s our mission to give customers the opportunity to feel more in control of their everyday money and financial health – so they can enjoy the things that matter most. In 2016 we announced our latest funding round of US$70m and were approved as a bank by the regulator – one year later we became the first mobile-only current account in the UK. To support our growth we are looking for a proven product manager who has shown specialism in consumer facing web and mobile products with experience working in an early stage business, start-up environment.

At Starling, there’s no corporate nonsense or IT team – you’ll be embedded in a cross-functional team of product managers, creative, digital marketing specialists, communications and engineering and you’ll liaise with teams throughout Starling to develop the products.

  • Think about the data. Define KPIs for your customer segment, analyse the impact of product features and provide insightful recommendations for continuous improvement.
  • Collaborate with experience design and customer mobile teams in the development of product features to drive adoption, and develop strategies to maximise product engagement.
  • Manage the product backlog, clearly articulating and agreeing the user stories and acceptance criteria and prioritising to ultimately help deliver the overall product vision.
  • Coordinate with cross-functional teams throughout Starling to ensure the successful implementation of product features and associated processes.
  • Be a partner of the product marketing team developing feature propositions, helping to shape the voice of the product and reach the right market to grow a loyal customer base.
