Bud's mission is simple. We're here to create the world’s most compelling financial data products. The products we're building are used by some of the world's most prestigious institutions to help millions of their customers take control of their finances.
The Assess team help clients speed up affordability checks and help customers they couldn't previously serve. They build intelligent APIs and interfaces for advisors and customers to understand their finances and get access to financial services.
Product Managers at Bud are tasked with solving high impact problems to build products that tangibly benefit the lives of millions of people around the world. From our underlying data intelligence platform through to the data services built for specific use-cases, you’ll be responsible for understanding the needs of clients and their customers, and pushing the boundaries of what can be done with data. One day you might be uncovering insights in a client workshop, another day you’ll be figuring out the best way to design an API or front-end interface. You’ll operate with high autonomy and accountability, leading your team to deliver measurable outcomes.
We’re a diverse group of people. With backgrounds ranging from data science to music production, more than 80% of our team come from outside the world of finance – providing us with a unique perspective as we help consumers feel more in control of their lives. For us, an interest in people comes first; finance follows.
The apps and infrastructure we’re building are designed to place the power of personal data back into the hands of normal people. Picture this: a world where your bank knew you were paying too much for your gas bill and could switch you to a more suitable provider, or understood your savings targets and could automatically find you a better deal. That’s what we’re working towards.
Bud’s mission is to make the money part of people’s lives simple. To get there, we need a workforce that is diverse as the people we create our products for. Which means we need people who have different backgrounds and experiences, who are diverse in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and ways of thinking. We truly believe that these differences will make us grow as a company and a team. We strive to create a workplace and culture where our people are empowered, supported, given equal opportunities and can bring their authentic selves to work.
We offer competitive salaries in line with industry benchmarks, set using extensive market data. We review salaries on an annual basis to make sure we continue to reward people well for their contributions at Bud.
We believe in helping our staff save for retirement, with Bud matching pension contributions up to 5%.
We understand how important it is to look after your physical and mental health, and also that this looks different for everyone. To support this, we offer a range of wellbeing benefits for our team. We have private medical insurance as well as a £50 monthly flexible wellbeing allowance. We also partner with the mental health platform, Spill, who provide therapy services and support.
Learning & Development 📚
As part of our commitment to developing our people, all employees at Bud have an annual £1000 pot available to use towards their learning and development - think books, courses & events - the choice is yours.
We also have quarterly R&D days, giving you the opportunity to take a break for 2 days from live projects and work on something that’s inspired you, either independently or as part of a collaborative team.
Flexible Working ⏳
As a trusted member of Bud, you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to manage your time and routine in a way that suits you, and your team, allowing you to deliver your best work. All of our roles can be based in our London office, or fully remote/distributed in the UK.
Time Off 🏖️
We’re a team that likes to work hard, so we need to make sure we balance this with time to rest and relax. We offer 25 days holiday, plus the usual bank holidays, plus additional time off over the holiday season.
We also give everyone two days of paid volunteering leave per year, to spend time on projects and initiatives that matter to you.
We’ll get you all set up to work effectively and comfortably from Day 1 with an Apple laptop and any additional equipment you might need to work remotely.
We’re big on keeping Bud a social place to work, with big quarterly events (we throw an epic summer party) and regular team socials.
We are big advocates of sustainable transport and travel, and are members of a cycle to work scheme. We also have season ticket loans available.
