Description

Who we are

Since 2001 thinkmoney has been helping customers stay on top of their finances. We’ve changed a fair bit since then, and we’re growing and developing new things faster than ever. But one thing hasn’t changed: the way we look after our customers.

For ten consecutive years we’ve held a four star Fairbanking mark to recognise that we help customers manage money well. The brilliant service our customers receive has also earned us a 4 star rating on Trustpilot.

In December 2019 we won out latest award for Best Use of IT in Retail Banking at the 20th Banking Tech Awards, highlighting our innovation and digital transformation skills. For more information, please visit our LinkedIn page.

Our digital teams are constantly developing new app features based on real customer feedback, and our customer service teams are here to support customers who need that human touch.

Our commitment to helping others doesn’t end there. CSR is important, and in 2020 we received an award for being the largest fundraiser for Cash For Kids over the last four years, and another for raising £1million for charities in the last ten years.

 

Personal Qualities and Cultural Fit

We work fast and to a high standard. The only way to constantly deliver in a time of great change is to ensure collaboration between people and departments.

We look for people who are intellectually curious as to what is possible, mixed with the pragmatism to understand the operating environment and constraints, be they time, budget or capabilities.

The art of the possible mixed with the need to get things delivered.

thinkmoney continues to be successful, so a growth mindset where you build technology solutions that work now, but that have future growth and business needs taken into account is essential. All delivered at a price point that ensures the maximum value for all expenditure.
