Our Story

We’re empowering people to FeelGood about their money.

We’re been on this journey since 2004, when we built the first ever peer-to-peer lending company to give people access to simpler, better-value loans and investments. When it comes to money, we think everyone deserves a fair deal, so since we launched, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of customers to take the stress out of money by building our business on honesty, transparency and trust.

Our journey’s always evolving and we’re now launching a bank. But a different type of bank – one that empowers its customers to take control of their finances and FeelGood about their money.

If you embrace being challenged beyond the norm, aren’t afraid to think differently and are motivated by working somewhere you can really make an impact, you’ll love life here at Zopa.

At Zopa, analysts are the people that inspire ideas and strategies to drive our business forward and make our products better for customers. They’re a rare mix: creative problem solvers who are also analytical and confident in using data whilst also having genuine empathy for customers.

Your reach and exposure will be huge and you’ll be working across a range of different projects across the business.

Some of the problems we’re currently solving

In our Unsecured Personal Loan tribe we make a lending decision in under 8 seconds utilising our best in class tech; But how do we combine different sources of information to understand which areas of our site we need to improve to give a better customer experience? How do we understand the risk profile of our customers to set the optimal prices? How can we optimise our prices to ensure great outcomes for investors and borrowers?

Building a money management app;How can we help customers better manage their money? How do we transfer the insights from a user testing session into a live app in two weeks?

Our new Auto Loan team; How can we get customers better rates on car finance directly and how can we make a real difference in an unfair market?

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! *Watch our video for more insights!*

“You really do influence a lot of things. You influence what is the next feature that we’re going to build, you influence what is the target market we’re going to address with the new feature we’re building, how we allocate resources and so on. So yeah, quite a big impact” -Product Designer, Money Management App

Where your career could go?

At Zopa, your career could follow one of several career paths depending on your interests, skills and experiences. If product and strategy is your thing, you could progress into a product management role; if you’d like to stay closer to quantitative analytics, you might specialize in credit risk. Data science, user research or design are also options for you. We are committed to moving your career forwards and developing Zopa’s leaders of tomorrow.

“There’s no better feeling than when we’ve just released a new feature, we’ve fixed a problem that was going on with our platform and we see customers noticing it and leaving us reviews and saying ‘that’s so good, or you know this is a great product, thank you for having it, it just makes it worth it!” - Delphine, Product Manager
