About Cleo AI

Cleo’s not a bank and she doesn’t want your money.

Think: habit tracking and money management app, all wrapped up in an extremely intelligent chatbot. Cleo sits above your bank accounts and uses AI to analyse your spending and provide actionable insights. Users get a range of features such as easy spending trackers budget goal setting, whilst also help avoid overdraft charges like auto-savings or cash back rewards. All of this works towards helping users reach their financial goals.

Job Description

We get it – it’s why most people come to Cleo. Together we’re fighting for the world’s financial health, building an AI that helps you make the best money decisions from day one. We’ve helped 4 million people so far with personalised insights and a voice you don’t expect in FinTech. But it’s time to do more.

As we enter the next phase, we’re looking for more improvisers, data geeks and grown ups who want to own their work and create meaningful change.

Watch this to dive a little deeper

We’re looking for a Product Lead to join us on our mission to fight for the world's financial health. You’ll be leading a team of adaptable, creative and product-focused engineers and product designers who ship working software quickly. We understand our customers, we understand their pain, and we are passionate about helping them.

We're currently hiring for a Product Lead for our Core product horde (tribe). The Core horde covers the Cleo user experience for our free app, covering some of our key features including the following:

    Savings with goals and auto-save features
    Spending Breakdowns
    Daily Insights

Life as a Product Lead at Cleo

    You’ll be reporting directly to our VP of Product, Lia Siebert (ex Strava)
    You'll manage a team of 3-4 Product Managers and will be responsible for mentoring them and helping them to shape their careers
    You’ll be leading by example; not only will you lead a product team, but you’ll be hands on and responsible for a wide part of the product
    You’ll be ensuring our users needs are always at the heart of what we’re building, working with our talented user research team, and getting hands on yourself
    You’ll be responsible for leading a team of engineers, product analysts and designers with the power to really make things happen
    You’ll be defining which projects we need to prioritise and setting a timeline to hit those goals quickly
    You’ll be scaling things quickly through your ability to coach cross-functional teams in high pace delivery and efficiency
    You’ll be making a truly impactful difference to over 4,000,000+ users across the world

What we’re looking for

    Creativity. We are not making banking slightly prettier, or allowing people to order burgers faster, but radically changing how people interact with and feel about their finances.  This means thinking about problems in a different way, and we encourage PMs from all backgrounds to apply.
    We are looking for user focused Product Managers; ideally you have an interest or previous experience in user centred design
    You’re customer obsessed and have successful experience working in fast-paced consumer focused (B2C) environments
    We’re open to people with a wide range of industry experience, no need to have previous Finance or Fintech exposure
    You have a great ability to solve complex problems and proven experience working on complex products/features
    You have energy and drive to make an impact; people describe you as a force of nature who cares about their team


    You have 5+ years of experience in a Product Management role, ideally for a mobile app-focused business
    Experience mentoring and managing Product Managers and helping them achieve their career goals
    You have proven experience working with engineering teams, involving them in defining solutions, encouraging them to experiment and coaching them in all things Agile
    Prior work with complex, successful consumer-facing products
    Experience working in a fast paced, data driven environment, using A/B testing to drive measurable change

Why should I apply?

    We have a clear Product Manager career growth framework so you’ll understand from day 1 how to develop your career and improve your skills at Cleo
    You’ll be joining an open and collaborative team where you’ll be heard and get to make a difference
    You will have the opportunity to help shape our product practices and culture
    You’ll have the opportunity to have impact outside of your squad, working with other PMs in your tribe to define strategy, and set Cleo up for success
    We are at an exciting time in our growth, having doubled in size over the last 6 months, and we need strong PMs to come into business to unlock our next stage of growth

How long will the process take?

    We aim to move as fast as possible, usually 2-3 weeks is enough time for us all to get to know each other
        Step 1: Quick phone call with a member of our Talent team to find out more about your experience and why you want to work at Cleo
        Step 2: 45 minute initial interview with our VP of Product, Lia Siebert
        Step 3: 1 hour interview with our VP of Product and VP of Data/Engineering and a 1 on 1 session with our Senior PM on the Core Tribe
        Step 4: Final stage interview with Barney, our CEO and founder

What do you get for all your hard work?

    An above market compensation package (Base + Equity). We're prepared to pay for the very best
    Work at one of the fastest growing tech startups anywhere in the world who are backed by top VC firm, Balderton
    The team is exceptional. You'll get to work with brilliantly forward-thinking and dedicated individuals every day
    Our mission is standout. We want to fight for the world’s financial health. We're not maximising the time consumers spend in a feed, getting fast food delivered, or building an incrementally better bank. We're changing an industry in a visceral way, which you get to see every day in our customer feedback

We are committed to making Cleo a more diverse and inclusive workplace. We are making continuous changes in order to make sure that all voices, especially those of minorities are heard, supported and celebrated. Our work doesn't stop at hiring, and we are providing every employee with training, support and development throughout their Cleo career, alongside training specific to inclusivity.
