About StudentFinance

The World Economic Forum predicts that we will need to retrain one billion people by 2030. StudentFinance’s Career Mobility Platform is here to scale upskilling globally.

We are proud to empower economic mobility and change people's lives through revolutionary education financing. Our startup is backed by VCs like Iberis Capital, Mustard Seed MAZE, Armilar VP, Seedcamp and many more. And the news are out - we just raised our Series A funding round and 2023 is a year of acceleration! 📈

💥2023 in a nutshell:

  • We’re upgrading our labor market data intelligence with AI models, technology and machine learning
  • We’re serving the UK and ES markets + opening up our operation in Germany
  • We’re expanding to new and exciting fields of study, such as green skills/net zero transition and healthcare

We are building the infrastructure to offer outcomes-based financing. Through Income Share Agreements (ISA for short), people defer the tuition payment and only start making payments after securing a job. ISAs are all about aligned incentives, and so are we at StudentFinance. Our end game is supporting our customer's transition to employment and financial health.

We are building a world-class team of purpose-driven and entrepreneurial people, working in a remote setting from cities across Europe.

About the role

In this role you will unlock growth by building our key parts of our product from the ground up. It should feel second nature to you to navigate our multi-market payment collection complexities and regulatory requirements; to work under the pressure of a rocket-ship growth of customers; to collaborate closely across customers and the team to define a vision from scratch; and to work closely with our engineers, and get hands on when it makes sense, to drive short term wins along the roadmap.

Your responsibilities:

  • Define and lead product and feature launches to enable growth.
  • Own our product and feature vision definition and roadmap.
  • Define and monitor key product metrics.
  • Build close relationships with, and get feedback and buy-in from, stakeholders, the team, and customers.
  • Contribute to developing and improving our product development processes, proposing tools and processes that could make yourself and the team more efficient and productive.
  • Work cross-functionally to handle and resolve complex and time-sensitive challenges that are important for the company.

Job requirements

About you:

  • Proven track record of tying together commercials, regulation and customer attitudes and behaviours to build and launch new products or features, end to end, to drive growth.
  • Demonstrated ability to challenge and validate assumptions using product discovery and validation techniques as well as through rigorous analysis of internal and external data and consumer insights.
  • Strong communication skills and comfortable interacting with stakeholders, internal teams and end customers to understand their needs as well as communicating progress and potential operational risks.
  • Experience working with cross functional digital teams and able to help them to better understand and consider the impacts of their decisions on the customer, commercials, and risk exposure.
  • Detail oriented, have an inquisitive mind, and think thoroughly from first principles.
  • Experience with modern Product Management and BizOps tools (Jira, Airtable, Zapier, Autopilot, etc)
