Bits (www.getbits.app) is an app-based store card that helps people build their credit score and history.
The problem we solve is building credit. Traditional advice for building credit is to get a credit card, but there are 10 million people in the UK who can’t get a credit card - or any form of mainstream credit - at all and are effectively locked out of mainstream credit. Bits has a unique model which makes it possible for these 10 million people - and in fact, for literally anyone - to sign up, and be approved for a Bits store card in less than 2 minutes.
We’ve made it possible for anyone to build credit, without the risk of getting into unnecessary debt. We’re in the UK and the US, and have offices in both locations.
The best part about working at Bits? Well, two things.
First, the mission. Literally every day you will receive emails from people describing how Bits has solved a life changing problem that they struggled with for years. You will make a difference here.
Second, the people. We are an eclectic mix of people, with backgrounds ranging from a former NHS infectious disease vaccine delivery lead, to an Oxford maths whizz, to a former CxO at Revolut. The one thing that we all share though is our commitment to the mission - unusually for a lending company, we don’t make any money on interest, we don’t put people into debt, and we are customer-first in everything we do.
About the role: As the Product Owner, you will own the Bits app and you will be passionate about its great user experience and delivering a best in class product.
