Head of Product

Credit Kudos is a London-based venture-backed fintech startup and challenger credit bureau that uses financial behaviour to measure creditworthiness. Our technology transforms the way credit checking and credit scores work by generating a more accurate and holistic view of a borrower’s creditworthiness. We’re working with lenders to help them make better, fairer credit decisions and with consumers to help them access fair, affordable credit.

We’re looking for a Head of Product to join our fast-growing team in London. This role will be the most senior Product role in the organisation, reporting directly to the CEO and working closely with both founders on shaping our product strategy. You will be responsible for nurturing and expanding our small team of Product Managers, and be the voice of Product on our management team.

You’ll be shaping a new class of credit bureau; one with significant customer involvement and one that’s focused on promoting and rewarding good financial behaviour, for the benefit of the whole financial sector. This is a deeply ethical role; many of the decisions made on a daily basis impact lives in very real ways and we want someone to think carefully and feel passionately about that.

You should apply if:

  • You know what it takes to ship market-leading products in a fast-paced startup environment, and you’ve been doing so for 10+ years
  • You’ve experience working in a B2B setting, ideally in FinTech and/or lending
  • You’ve built and led products (and teams) from nothing to success, with a keen focus on metrics and impact
  • You’re deeply driven to make the financial world fairer and more responsible
  • You’re happy when fluently bridging the gap between technical and non-technical, and jointly getting stuck into difficult problems
  • You’re an excellent communicator in every medium

Bonus points if:

  • You’ve shipped products in an Enterprise SaaS setting
  • You know how exactly how APIs work
  • You understand machine learning; what it is (and what it isn’t) and how it can drive business opportunities and product development
  • You’re a hobbyist programmer, designer or analyst

You will:

  • Think deeply and broadly about how we, as a company, succeed in the long term
  • Become the expert in our sector and target market to define our product strategy
  • Explore strategic opportunities with high-levels of uncertainty and then deliver solutions at pace
  • Align and motivate teams and stakeholders across the business at every level
  • Coach and mentor our Product Managers, and craft frameworks that and principles that enable the team to support our (and our clients’) growth
  • Work closely with Sales, Marketing and Customer Success Leads in driving results for the company
  • Be the voice of our customers and potential customers at the level of management

You’ll get:

  • Competitive salary, depending on experience
  • Flexible working arrangements, generous leave and a dog-friendly office
  • An opportunity to lead a talented and high-performing team of Product Managers, working on a problem that affects real peoples’ lives in dramatic ways
