Job Description

About Plum

Our mission is to help people save money without even lifting a finger. We’ve always hated saving money, but we wanted to change that. We decided to make Plum, so that there would be an easier way to save money to spend on things we want, rather than the things we need. We like to work with people that think like entrepreneurs, that really want to build and own something. This company will be your company and you will have to make decisions to drive its success!

We are a team of 7 with a background in growing early stage startups to large established brands. Victor (CEO) joined TransferWise when there were a handful of people in London and built the team that launched TransferWise in 25 countries. Alex (CTO) scaled the payments infrastructure for hundreds of thousands of Tictail merchants. It is a great time to join, as we are introducing new exciting features to our growing user base and becoming a key player in the Fintech scene.

* Monitoring operational performance and finding ways to improve it

What We're Building

Plum is your personal savings assistant — it monitors your daily spending and automagically sets money aside that you won't need. Because saying “#yolo” is a bit too tempting sometimes.

1. Plum will analyse your account so it can learn about your income, expenses and spending patterns. Your data is safe with us – we employ bank-grade security and work with all UK financial institutions.

2. Plum monitors your current account and every few days transfers some money from it to your Plum savings. You can access that money instantly at any time, so you don't have to worry about unexpected expenses.

3. Plum notifies you about your balance, gives you super-fast access to your savings and offers tips on how to save more. All over Messenger, so no more apps to download.

Add testimonials, product launches, and photos that highlight your company
