Lending Product Owner

London, United Kingdom

Landbay is a well-funded fin-tech scale-up, high growth mortgage marketplace providing buy-to-let mortgages to UK professional landlords. Landbay is transforming the digital mortgage lending space with the best minds in Tech and Finance. If you want to find a startup doing things the right way with massive growth potential and a dynamic environment, please get in touch. We recently closed a £1bn funding line from an international bank and are now looking to take significant market share from our competitors.

Landbay is going through a very accelerated growth phase as our lending figures increase dramatically. We’re scaling our product team to help deliver an exciting and ambitious roadmap with new products and features for landlords, investors, mortgage brokers and internal stakeholders. You’ll be reporting into the Head of Product whilst collaborating with engineers, stakeholders, designers and the wider product team.

There’s a lot to do and an amazing engineering and design team to help you do it. You will be responsible for the product domain that allows our lending capability to scale whilst ensuring good quality and reducing manual involvement. Examples of what you will work on are as follows: credit decisioning, case management, rules engines, fraud systems, RPA (Robotic Process Automation) as well as the wider product estate where necessary. You must bring a can-do attitude, enthusiasm and a genuine desire to disrupt the mortgage industry and the way it does things.
