UX Designer (high growth startup) MB0041
at Moneybox in London
(₤40000 - ₤50000 per year)
A generation is growing up without the tools or information they need to confidently build their financial future.
Whether the next goal is getting on the property ladder, starting their own business or paying for the big day, they are not being supported effectively by current providers.
For many, the concept of ‘wealth’ seems alien; it seems both too general and something only other people have.
That’s because there isn’t enough help available;
- the ‘wealth management’ industry is set up for those who already have wealth, not those who need to build it.
- banks are focused on selling products rather than helping people to achieve financial outcomes.
- financial planning is not taught at school or at work.
All of this means people don’t know where to start, taking part feels alien and unachievable everything seems very complicated
Our ambition is to help a generation invest in their future.
- Moneybox is on a mission to change the way people save and invest toward their future. Forget old-school finance – we make saving and investing part of your everyday life and help you achieve your goals, be it buying a house, saving for your children or something much more frivolous!
- Moneybox enables you to invest the change from your everyday purchases into simple tracker funds. For example, when you buy your morning coffee for £2.40, you can invest the 60p change into tracker funds within your ISA. This means that a you can set money aside to invest before you’ve finished your breakfast – not a bad start to the day!
- We have won multiple awards, and are currently one of the fastest growing fintech apps in the UK.
- We were founded in July 2015 by serial entrepreneurs Ben Stanway and Charlie Mortimer and currently have a team of 26. We expect to double this in the next year.
- We are authorised and regulated by the FCA and are backed by some of the UK’s leading venture capital investors.
