Lead Product Manager – Small Business Lending
As a Lead Product Manager you’ll be setting the vision and strategy for Tide’s in house credit products. At Tide we see credit as being a core part of what SMEs need to help run and grow their businesses. Therefore you’ll be responsible for taking this relatively new offering and scaling it up into a major feature that our members will value whilst ultimately driving revenue for the business.
You will be entrepreneurial and have expert knowledge in SME lending, combining the two to drive how we embedded credit across the Tide platform. You’ll be using your deep understanding of SMEs and their needs to maximise the value of our existing credit products as well as finding opportunities to develop.
To achieve this you’ll be working alongside experienced product professionals and hand-in-hand with senior developers, data scientists, designers, and marketers to research, build, ship and improve the product.
Some of the things you’ll be doing:
- Defining the vision and strategy for our in house credit products
- Owning the P&L for all in house credit products
- Researching and developing new credit product opportunities
- Leading a team of product managers
- Leading full stack development teams (Mobile, Web, Back-end) to deliver new and existing roadmap items in an agile, data-driven way
- Assessing opportunities, understanding behaviour, and testing hypotheses with data analysis to continuously improve the experience
- Leading by example: you will be hands on, take ownership for business metrics and product KPIs and play a pivotal role in bringing all stakeholders onboard
- Being a leader in Tide’s Product Community of Practice
What you’ll get in return:
- Competitive salary
- Vitality Health Insurance, with a proactive focus on mental and physical wellbeing
- Hundreds of perks and discounts through Vitality Health Insurance (fitness watches, Waitrose cashback, gym membership etc.)
- 24/7 Employee Assistance Programme
- 25 days holiday with the ability to buy extra days
- We invest in your development with a £1,000 professional L&D budget per year and ability to access thousands of resources through the Learnerbly platform

- Access to ‘salary sacrifice’ benefits such as Cycle to Work scheme and pension contribution
- Spacious brand new office in Liverpool street with an all-day snacks bar
- Enhanced family-friendly leave
- 24 hours paid volunteering or L&D time off per year
- Flexible work from home or at the office arrangements
- Monthly team socials (we’ve had themed bingo, online cocktail making sessions, wellbeing challenges and themed virtual pub quizzes)
You’ll be a great fit if:
- You’ve shipped market-leading products in a fast-growing product-focused company before as a Senior or Lead Product Manager
- You’re an expert in the SME lending
- You are analytical and data-driven with a strong KPI focus; well versed in conversion metrics and quantitative and qualitative data.

- You have practical agile product development experience
- You have Technical knowledge and experience with API-based products
- You have experience in retention and engagement marketing and / or product marketing

A note on the future of work at Tide:
Tide’s offices are beginning to open for Tideans to return on a voluntary basis. Timelines for reopening will be unique for each region and will be based on region-specific guidelines. The health and well-being of Tideans and candidates is our primary concern, therefore, for the foreseeable future, we have transitioned all interviews and onboarding to be conducted via Zoom.
