Product Owner (Payments Team)

full-time Tide London

Hello, we’re Tide.

Tide is the emerging leader in SME challenger banking in the UK and has been ranked as a Top 100 FinTech by KPMG. We believe SMEs have been vastly under-serviced and overlooked by traditional banks. Something as simple as opening an account can take weeks, mountains of paperwork and too much time. Thats why we are passionate about our mission to help SMEs - our members - save time (and money).

The Tide platform not only offers a business bank account and related banking services, but also a comprehensive set of highly usable administrative solutions, such as full integrations with accounting systems. Tide believes that truly serving SMEs requires a relentless focus on their needs. That is why were SME only.

Based in central London and Sofia, Tide is backed by some of Europe’s most notable founders and investors, including Alex Chesterman (Zoopla) as well as top VCs in London and Stockholm (Anthemis, Augmentum, Creandum, LocalGlobe and Passion Capital).
