Job Description

Who we are:

At TrueLayer, we’re building a global open banking platform that’s changing how money moves and so much more. We make payments and refunds instant, account data accessible and verification seamless — all so innovators in every industry can build better financial experiences for their users.

To date, we’ve raised $270 million from world-renowned investors including Stripe, Tiger Global, Addition and Tencent. We’ve got offices in London, Milan and Dublin. And we’re trusted by industry leaders like Revolut, Coinbase and Nutmeg… though we’re not stopping here.

Our vision is a financial system that works for everyone. To make that happen, we’re creating original and innovative products that will remove the friction from finance for good. We’re seriously scaling our infrastructure, we’re entering new areas all the time, we’re cornering a whole new category — and we’d like your support to get us there.

While coordinating projects that span from marketing collateral to product branding, merchandising, responsive experiences, and everything in between — you’ll be shaping a consistent narrative that will capture technical audiences through meaningful and accurate storytelling. In return, you’ll be given ownership of introducing new processes, improving existing ones, and taking our creative direction to the next level.

  • Experience in managing managers and team of 10+ people
  • Expertise in developing brands in the B2B tech space
  • Strong expertise managing design systems/brand guidelines

  • Strong prioritisation and conflict resolution skills, and ability to manage them in a constantly changing environment
  • Expertise in getting buy-in from stakeholders, and motivating brand choices to a broader audience
  • A preference for getting your hands dirty, and teaching by doing

We’d be especially excited if:

  • You’ve previously worked in a Fintech/API/SaaS company

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options TrueLayer provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure TrueLayer is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.
