Octopus is a fast-growing company with more than 500 employees. Since we launched in 2000, we’ve established market leading positions across financial services, healthcare and energy.
The Octopus Group incorporates Octopus Energy, Octopus Healthcare, Octopus Investments, Octopus Property, Octopus Ventures and Octopus Labs.
Octopus Labs is the fintech innovation unit of the Octopus Group. We fuse track record and technology, expertise and UX, to build financial products the way they should be: trustworthy, rewarding and easy-to-use.
We’re not your typical financial services company. We want to change the world of finance for the better, with easy-to-use products and services that help people to manage their money. We combine established financial expertise with cutting-edge technology to build smart, simple and disruptive fintech solutions for the mass market – like Octopus Choice and Octopus Cash.
18 months ago, we launched our first product, a peer-to-peer lending platform called Octopus Choice. We now have over 5,000 customers who have together invested more than £110 million, and are growing at a rapid pace.
Working at Octopus Labs provides an opportunity to combine the exciting pace and confidence of a start-up, with the broader benefits of a large, well-capitalised business that manages more than £7 billion on behalf of over 100,000 customers.
About the role
Our products are designed to be smart, simple and disruptive fintech solutions. There’s Octopus Choice, our multi award winning take on peer-to-peer lending, which invests users’ money in loans backed by bricks and mortar. And Octopus Cash, a smart savings service that helps consumers beat the high-street, and cut the hassle of switching.
The role would be perfect for a candidate with solid experience in the regulated sector looking for a new challenge and the chance to work in a fast paced tech start-up environment whilst retaining the benefits of being a part of a large, well-capitalised business. You’ll be joining the Risk and Compliance Director and Compliance Monitoring Associate as an integral part of the broader Choice and Cash team as we scale the two businesses.
We work collaboratively in an agile way that that characterises dynamic environment you’d expect in the start-up world coupled with the perks of a corporate job like 27 days holiday, bonus, subsided canteen and gym, flexible working and health insurance.
