About Salary Finance

We partner with employers to offer financial wellbeing benefits that help employees live healthier, happier lives. We do this by offering simple savings, access to pay as it is earned, and affordable loans - all underpinned by accessible, engaging money management tips and tools.
Launched in 2015, we have made excellent progress, and are scaling fast. We are named BITC’s Responsible Business of the Year 2018, included in KPMG’s Global Fintech 100, listed top of the Forbes' list of socially-responsible startups, and profiled by the Financial Times, the Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Guardian and the Telegraph.
We were co-founded by entrepreneurs Asesh Sarkar (CEO), Daniel Shakhani, and former Head of Google UK and Ireland Dan Cobley (Chairman) and are authorised by the FCA.
Your Role in Our Mission
As a Salary Finance Product Manager, you'll be working hard to deliver the Salary Finance vision, which is cool because it's a pretty big one; we exist to transform the lives of millions of employees by helping them to become financially healthier and happier.
You'll be part of a growing Product Team, with an initial focus on our Borrow product. You'll be collaborating with a variety of stakeholders across Operations, Development and Sales teams to identify key areas for improvement, draft solutions, prioritise them and then communicate those solutions to the delivery team.
The challenges we throw at you will be varied; from automating large-scale manual processes to developing new features for the customer-facing product. We want to keep you on your toes - one thing's for sure: you'll always be learning here. Don't worry - you'll be working with a world-class Product team so you'll have the opportunity to learn from doing as well as from your colleagues.
We embrace our differences but there’s one thing we like to share, our values, so it’s important to us you are:

- empathetic and truly care about every colleague and customer
- united, because you understand we achieve more when we work as a team
- humble, and take feedback as a way to continuously improve.
