We believe in differentiating our capital.
We’re been on this journey since 2004, when we built the first ever peer-to-peer lending company to give people access to simpler, better-value loans and investments. When it comes to money, we think everyone deserves a fair deal, so since we launched, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of customers to take the stress out of money by building our business on honesty, transparency and trust.
Our journey’s always evolving and we’re now launching a bank. But a different type of bank – one that empowers its customers to take control of their finances and FeelGood about their money.
If you embrace being challenged beyond the norm, aren’t afraid to think differently and are motivated by working somewhere you can really make an impact, you’ll love life here at Zopa.
We’re looking for an experienced commercial Analyst to manage one of our loan products. This will involve developing the product strategy to identify the biggest opportunities and how to tackle them. You’ll work across the business from credit risk, developers and designers to build a product that customers love, whilst also taking account of the commercial objectives to make it a success!

“You really do influence a lot of things. You influence what is the next feature that we’re going to build, you influence what is the target market we’re going to address with the new feature we’re building, how we allocate resources and so on. So yeah, quite a big impact” Product Designer, Money Management App
