VP of Product

full-time 11:FS London

What do we do over here? (Seriously?!) πŸŒŸπŸ”

11:FS is a challenger consultancy that builds and launches next generation digital propositions for some of the biggest banks in the world.

We have pulled together a stellar team who have previously co-founded and grown challenger banks like Monzo, Starling, and Tandem, lead the technology platform at Nutmeg, transformed banks like Lloyds, and developed Blockchain applications at Barclays.

We don’t work like an agency, as we are effectively building and launching new startup fintech propositions for our clients. Like a special forces team, we get a lot of leeway to make it happen while protecting the reputation of our tier 1 clients.

Our ultimate aim is to transform financial services across the world, and positively impact the lives of millions of customers by delivering truly digital financial services to retail, business, corporate, insurance, and asset management customers.
