Product Executive Internship - transform how kids learn about money
We are looking for a talented, smart and brilliant go getter, looking to gain experience in the start-up and fin-tech world. RoosterMoney is offering a paid 3 month summer internship; a great opportunity to be part of a scaling start-up, delivering awesome customer and product experiences, with the product and customer operations teams.
RoosterMoney is a pocket money & allowance tracking app that helps parents teach their kids the value of money in a digital age. Simple, progressive and gameful, we bring to life all the sound traditional financial principles we were brought up with (or wish we were!) and make managing money smart, fun & relevant for the modern world.
We believe the world would be a better place if we all talked about money a little earlier on in life. Research shows that our money habits are formed by the age of seven. That’s a pretty amazing opportunity to help give kids a head-start in building habits that will stick with them for life.
We are a team of 20, with half the team based in the London HQ, and the other half scattered across the UK and beyond. We operate a remote first culture, but make time to all get together every couple of months.
Hundreds of thousands of families have downloaded the RoosterMoney app since our launch in January 2016 and we have over 51 currencies being used by children around the world.
RoosterMoney has been featured in The Times, Telegraph, Guardian, Wall Street Journal, New Zealand Herald to name a few. We’ve been on CNBC and are considered experts in our field.
Alongside our app, we’re launching the Rooster Card, a prepaid Visa card for kids with parental controls. This product has been designed with our users in mind, and presents lots of exciting new challenges for both the product and customer operations teams. We are scaling rapidly which offers lots of opportunity for anyone joining the company.
The successful candidate will operate with a high level of autonomy within the Product and Customer Operations teams. You are passionate about helping families teach children the value of money and excited about working on a global platform with a big social mission.
You will be a strong problem solver, organised, analytical and great at communicating with others. We look for T-shaped people who have a core set of skills they can bring to the team and the ability to build on new ones. Whatever the problem or opportunity, you find the best solution in the quickest amount of time.
You will be the bridge between the customer needs and future product developments. Always asking the question why, you enjoy digging deep into customer problems and finding optimal solutions and outcomes. You’ll get to delve deep into customer feedback, analyse and propose development opportunities. Working alongside our product owners, you’ll help bring the product requirements to life and work with the development team to implement these new features and optimisations.
We are a small team so it’s important that the successful candidate isn’t just highly competent but is a good cultural fit and understands the remote working culture.
