Product Owner

Job description

We’re Chip, we’re building the world’s best savings account.

We’re using cutting edge tech and AI to shake up the slow, stagnant and old-fashioned savings market. 

We’ve built a clever app that makes saving easier, faster, and smarter. It makes your financial goals happen automatically, and gets you feeling good about your money.

We’re growing fast, and we have some very exciting plans. So we need a Product Owner to help us make them happen. 

Requirements

The Role - Product Owner

We need a Product Owner with strong UX background who understands what our customers need and will act as their champion within Chip. 

What we’re doing isn’t easy and no-one’s ever done it before. We need someone who can look at complicated banking infrastructure, cutting edge technology and find ways to make it simple, better, more human. 

We need a problem solver. A doer. Someone who can make the technical simple, the complex clear, who’s not afraid to take ownership of big challenges facing our product, find solutions, and communicate comfortably and clearly with every level of the business.

We know the solutions won’t always be simple, but you should be able to explain them in a simple way. 

And the most important word in all of this is ‘Owner’. We want someone who will take responsibility for Chip’s customer facing product, steer it with the customer in mind and not accept anything less than the very best for the product and Chip’s customers.
