Hello. We’re World First and we’re a bit different from the rest…

World First is a market-leading, award-winning, bank-beating, rapidly-growing, fun-loving international payments company and we are looking to hire a Senior Product Manager. 

We win lots of awards – a few recent ones include #7 on the The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200, The Queen’s Award 2016, Ruban D’honneur for the European Business Awards for Customer Focus and the UK Customer Experience Awards.
Our growth has also placed us on the FinTech 50 and the Investec Hot 100.

Basically, we are a company that is going places!

The role:

We are looking for an experienced Product Management professional who lives to delight the customer, thrives in a fast pace, collaborative environment and loves technology.

This role is to own and develop consumer and/or business facing technology products as part of the Product Management team, driving the development of products such as our online platform and our API. This is a new role in an entirely new team, so we are looking for someone who can help instill a product management mindset across World First.

Reporting to the Head of Core Product, you are not just someone to manage a backlog, this role is for a strategic thinker who is passionate about product and technology. Combining hands on implementation and backlog management with vision and the ‘big picture’, supporting the fast-paced growth of the business and our customers.

  • You are excited about taking an idea to market while simultaneously handling day-to-day product decisions – you get things done and can communicate both the long-term product vision and short term priorities to business stakeholders.
  • You are curious to uncover new problems to solve and can translate your forward thinking into a high-level product strategy.
  • You are comfortable defining, owning and driving the product roadmap for your area of focus, working across multiple development teams and stakeholders.

You need:

  • Strong previous experience in a Product Manager or Product Owner role in a fast paced agile development team.
  • An understanding of agile/lean principles, with a willingness to adapt and learn
  • An ability to analyse business and customer problems and draft user stories to define them. You enjoy understanding the data and how it leads to actionable insights and solutions.
  • Experience with owning the end to end product lifecycle for a number of successful products, comfortable with making tough product and tradeoff decisions along the way
  • Great communication skills and comfortable work with stakeholders and customers at all levels and get the best out of our technical teams.
  • Passion for owning the end-to-end product lifecycle
  • Demonstrable experience of being curious, always asking ‘why’ and looking for critical problems to solve.


  • Experience of working in a fast pace financial service or Fintech business.
  • A background in business analysis, breaking complex problems down into chunks.
  • An appreciation of user experience and customer pain points.

In return we’ll give you:

  • A competitive salary, commensurate with experience
  • An excellent benefits package including annual discretionary bonus, company pension scheme and health cover
  • World Perks: season ticket loan, free breakfast, childcare vouchers, Friday drinks fridge, business casual dress code, corporate discounts, tri-annual company parties – and more!
