Among all the chatter about mass movement in the job sector, the fintech industry has not been immune.
In fact, tech has traditionally had a high employee turnover rate of around 13.2% – higher than the average for many other industries. Fast growth and burnout drive this, but so too does the fact that there are attractive offers elsewhere in what is a burgeoning sector.
After a tough couple of years where we all evaluated many things in our lives – not just how we work – lots of fintech professionals are now looking to curate their careers.
Quality of life, less time commuting and other benefits aside, money is also a big motivator. The main reason 23% of UK workers had to look elsewhere this year was linked to salary, and their employers not offering bonuses or pay rises.
In one recent US study of 2,000 workers, 64% of recent job switchers are in a role that is paying them more money, with almost 9% earning at least 50% more than before. It’s a compelling reason to make a move, and if you’re looking for a new fintech role that will improve your bank balance, then we have three below – and for plenty more, you can check out our Job Board.
Software Engineering Manager, Customer Operations, Monzo
Why move here: Compensation here is based on a combination of salary and equity, with a base salary range of £90,000 to £140,000, depending on your experience.
The job: Online bank Monzo is looking for a Software Engineering Manager to lead multiple squads in customer operations. While it’s not a role that requires hands-on coding, Monzo wants an experienced manager with a strong technical and delivery background who has worked as a software engineer in previous roles.
What you’ll need: You’ll have delivery experience and be able to guide the customer operations squads in achieving their outcomes. You will also focus on outcomes over processes and will optimise for the highest impact and leverage. You’ll be able to input, understand and challenge engineering decisions, and empower the team to make those decisions themselves.
Senior Software Engineer, Hazy
Why move here: If flexible working has become your key requirement, you’ll get it here. Hazy offers remote working within a two-hour time difference from London, or hybrid working in its London offices.
The job: Hazy is a synthetic data company and it is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join the engineering team. You will work on exciting, cutting-edge projects.
What you’ll need: At least three to four years’ experience as a software engineer or software developer and a BSc in computer science or engineering are required. You’ll also be willing to learn new languages and technologies as required. Python experience, test-driven development experience and familiarity with Docker would all be an advantage.
Prudential Risk Analyst, Tandem Bank
Why move here: Tandem’s mission is to build a business of the future, improving people’s financial lives. It is doing that by proactively helping customers reduce their carbon footprints and accelerate the UK to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. If that speaks to you, this could be the right fit.
The job: The Prudential Risk Analyst will be a member of the Prudential Risk Team, and will be responsible for maintaining the risk management framework and associated policies and processes. You will be involved in shaping the internal capital adequacy assessment process (ICAAP) and providing oversight for the ILAAP.
What you’ll need: Demonstrable relevant experience to the role in the financial services industry along with strong analytical and technical skills. You’ll also have excellent communication, writing and presentation skills and be able to build relationships across the business.
