Group Product Manager
We’re looking for an exceptional leader to join our Product team.
GoCardless is building a new global network for recurring bank-to-bank payments. We’re cutting out the intermediaries and linking together direct debit schemes from around the world to create a simple way of collecting payments directly from customers’ bank accounts. Our API powers recurring payments for companies like the Financial Times, Thomas Cook and Nutmeg. It also enables partners including Quickbooks, Xero and Sage to help tens of thousands of small businesses to save countless hours spent chasing customers for payments.

You’ll be responsible for the career development of the Product Managers in your teams, and Group PMs are expected to play a leading role in shaping our product management and broader Product Development organisations.

We’re building the payments network for the internet. Join us.
Since GoCardless was set up in 2011, we have been focussed on simplifying Direct Debit and opening up access to companies who could never previously use it. We already process over $1bn each year for thousands of businesses, and we are growing fast.
We work with a huge range of organisations: small gyms and scout groups use us to reduce admin; fast growing companies like Funding Circle use us to power their growth; established institutions like the Guardian use us to dramatically reduce failure rates.
Our ambitions go beyond this: we want to break down barriers so that businesses can quickly and simply start taking payments from anyone, anywhere in the world.
Over the last year, we’ve expanded our offering for larger organisations, like the Guardian and the UK Government. We’ve also added European Direct Debit schemes, so multinational companies can collect payments across Europe with ease. We’ve recently launched in France and Germany, and in the coming year we’ll continue our global expansion, as we create a global network for recurring payments.
We’re London-based, and backed by some of the world’s leading investors including Balderton Capital, Accel Partners, Passion Capital and Y Combinator.
