Crowdfunder is the UK’s number one crowdfunding platform. We exist to tackle society’s challenges and we’d like to talk to you.

We’re searching for a leader who can be the link between our customers and platform team to help us continue our journey into the big leagues. Someone with good knowledge of technical architecture and a track record of bringing people together behind a vision, to help us drive things forwards and get even more money into the hands of the communities that need it.

As a product expert, you’ll be at home with Agile methods and used to the juggle of getting deliverables out of the door on one hand while focusing on core improvements with the other. We love a slick roadmap almost as much as you do and we’d like you to show us how we can do more of this.

In this role you'll get to...

Lead the development of Crowdfunder’s product strategy and turn concepts into sustainable products that drive growth

Help us realise our company vision with the support of an active product roadmap and champion this across the business

Develop a process of robust research and insight around the user journey and use this to inform and shape decision making

Create and track clear metrics for measuring performance

Provide cross-functional leadership and lead collaboration across the business, balancing customer and resource requirements

What skills will you have?

Develop and manage inspiring, scalable products that people want to use

Define, plan and prioritise like a pro with confident fluency in agile development methodologies

Use sector knowledge of fundraising and/or fintech and the commercial, process and engineering challenges that drive growth in these sectors

Bring a well rounded technical knowledge of how a customer-facing platform operates, ideally within a fast moving / startup environment

Use data and research to drive improvements to our user experience

Inspire others, both direct reports, across the business and work with third party suppliers 

Life at Crowdfunder

At Crowdfunder, we’re driven to do good and recognise that when you walk into the office at the start of the day, you don’t suddenly forget about your family, your passions, your hobbies — the rest of your life.

We’re as far from a stuffy, corporate environment as can be, but we do work smart. We have a commercial concentration that is second to none, and our focus is on enabling our project owners to achieve their targets and outcomes. This takes a certain sort of ambition and determination, which is why our vibrant, intuitive way of doing business makes working at Crowdfunder lots of fun.
