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, Dublin and Sydney. And we’re trusted by industry leaders like Revolut, Cazoo and Trading 212… 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.


At TrueLayer we believe that bridging the gap between engineering and design is the best way to build frictionless products. That’s why our designers, researchers, developers, and PMs consistently collaborate (think less “silo”, more “free flow”). So, from end-user interfaces to our developer Console, there’s no problem that we can’t tackle at scale with intuitive, user-centric, beautiful design.

As our UX Researcher Lead in the Product Development group, you’ll be helping us build end-to-end product experiences based on data and research and managing the UX Research team. Working across multiple product teams, you’ll mentor and actively help different stakeholders on best research and data analysis practices, as well as being a champion for user-centric design.

In return, you will have the opportunity to work across wide variety of projects including multiple use cases from different industries across increasing number of geographies. You will play a crucial role in shaping how we build and structure research process and influence the way we design and build products which already handle over half of all open banking transactions in the UK, with no signs of slowing down.
