City of London (Bank), London

£60,000 + benefits

Who we are

We are a new FinTech / PropTech startup with a passion for empowering people through the use of technology and personal data. We believe that consumers want more control over their personal data as the digital economy unfolds; they want to know what companies are using it for, they want it to be secure and they want to be able to transfer it from one organisation to another.

The role offers a fantastic opportunity for a proactive individual to join a new business at the start of its journey and to make a big impact on how the company, platform and technology grows.

We offer a flexible, fun and exciting working environment with great opportunities and a place for personal development at a company that actively encourages a positive work-life balance.

 

The Product and Platform

FirstHomeCoach was conceived with a clear mission to help people buy their first home. Home buying is usually a long, complicated and painful process, especially for first-time buyers. We are committed to changing this through technology and design to make people’s experience of buying their first home more personal, easier and stress free.

FirstHomeCoach is the first product that will be built using the LifeHub platform that allows people to securely store, manage, and transmit data about themselves, their family or assets they own. The platform will be built as a set of modules which can be used as the building blocks for products, that are focused on using personal data to empower people.

You will be working with the team to build the platform from scratch, as well as helping refine our user experience, help document requirements and build out the roadmap for the product.
