What do we like?

Flair

You aren’t afraid of a blank page and have the conceptual and visual ability to    draw on the UI patterns you already know, but add something special that makes people say ‘damn, that’s slick’.

Confident storytelling

You are learning to tell a good story around any piece of work – it doesn't just look good, but you can explain why it's been created that way, to anyone who needs to hear it. And hopefully make them laugh along the way.

Drive

We're not talking about motivation here, that should be a given. All of our people at all levels are free to own their work and think creatively. You need to care about the quality of the work you do and the impact it will have on the lives of the people you’re creating it for.

Do I need financial services experience?

It's definitely a bonus, but no you don't need it. We are not a bank and the environment is similar to a startup or design agency. If you arrive here really knowing your design onions, our research tool Pulse will give you access to every fintech UI you'd ever want to see to get you up to speed.

Who will you be working with?

In the last 5 years we have built an amazing team from the best in start-ups, design studios, agencies and financial services. Our people have co-founded and grown challengers like Monzo, Starling, and Tandem, led the technology platforms at Nutmeg, Betfair and beyond.

You will be a key member of the team, helping to lead the design tribe, working with people who've been creating the digital banks you now own a card from. 

About us:

11:FS is on a mission to change the fabric of financial services. Our Consulting & Research practice builds challenger propositions globally, like we did for Natwest with Mettle. Our Pulse team creates a benchmarking tool used by the likes of Monzo, Starling, Natwest and Tesco Bank. Our Foundry team are delivering a Financial Services Operating System to help businesses quickly add financial services to their offering. On top of all of that, we’re a media company, generating content that supports our brand and changes the conversation - not necessarily in that order.

Unfortunately we are unable to sponsor Visas at this time, but please do check back in with us in the future.
