Oodle Car Finance is a Fintech startup changing the way people buy cars, by putting our customers’ needs front and centre of the biggest retail market in the UK. We’re headquartered in Oxford with an office in central London and over 135 employees. We grew over 450% in 2018, with 2019 only looking to continue on this incredible trajectory.
We are bringing the used-car market bang up to date by building modern, digital, retail processes around what the customer actually needs. Although we primarily provide loans for our customers and link them up with some of the UK’s best car dealers (in one rapid, blink-and-you-miss-it, digital procedure), that’s just the start. Our ultimate goal is to make buying a car as easy as buying a t-shirt on Amazon. With a glove box full of powerful algorithms (and investment from some of the world’s most reputable financial institutions) we have been building and developing a customer-first, fully integrated digital retail experience inspired by Amazon’s one-click model. We’re not quite there yet, but with our proprietary loan technology, machine learning, and Big Data infrastructure, we’re shooting for the stars. This is where you come in.
To help us achieve our ultimate mission to create a best-in-class consumer experience where our customers reap the benefits, we want exceptional individuals to join our team and revel in the ride. We need outstanding people with strong achievements, along with buckets full of energy, desire, curiosity and a can-do attitude to thrive in a fast-paced and fun entrepreneurial environment. Rated 4.8 out of 5 on Glassdoor, we aim to provide the best employee experience you’ll have ever had.
When you join us at Oodle, you directly impact how we develop and how we change the game.
