About Griffin

Hi, we’re Griffin! We’re the bank for companies who want to build and launch financial products.

Our context

We're rapidly heading towards a future where most of us access financial services through technology companies rather than high street banks. All sorts of companies are now embedding financial products into their apps and user journeys so that their customers can seamlessly make payments, manage expenses, take out loans, save, invest, and do more.

The problem is that companies are still dependent on legacy banking infrastructure if they want to offer regulated financial products. They need to either partner directly with an (slow-moving, risk-averse) incumbent bank and/or stitch together middleware from various Banking as a Service (BaaS) providers. This process is slow, expensive, and complex and makes it very hard for companies to get new financial products off the ground.

At Griffin, we want to change this.

Our purpose

We want to make it easy for companies to bring finance to their customers at the point of greatest relevance. So, we built a bank.

But not just any bank! Griffin is a technology platform and a bank: fully regulated, API-first, developer-centric, and purpose-built to serve innovative fintechs and brands who want to build and embed financial products.

Learn more about what we do.

Our culture

Our culture is our most important asset, and one of the ways we safeguard it is by being extremely intentional about hiring the right people. We won't hire people who don’t seem like a strong fit for our core values, even if they're otherwise extremely qualified.

We also believe that smart, motivated, conscientious people thrive in high-trust, high-autonomy environments. That’s why we’re transparent by default, and we encourage open discussion and challenge across all levels of the organisation. We’re also remote-first, asynchronous, and fully flexible - because you're the expert on how and when you do your best work.

The Commercial team

Like most of Griffin, the Commercial team is in its infancy.

We strive to bring the best in technology, user experience and banking to the embedded finance space and be the bank for fintechs and corporates to build on.

As one of the early members of the commercial team, you’ll help shaping solutions for our customers and analyse potential new opportunities and markets.

Who are you

The ideal candidate for this job will have most of the following:

  • An understanding of the fintech landscape, and an interest in building and working in a regulated UK bank.
    • Ideally 1-3 years experience in UK financial sector (banking, consulting, early stage)
  • An interest in how technology is changing banking, and a high level of comfort with technology.
  • Solid quantitative analytical/ data analysis skills, [experience with python is a plus]
  • Highly numerate with previous financial modelling experience
  • Experience in commercial function in a UK bank or fintech is a plus
  • Curious and excited about innovation in banking and ensuring great customer outcomes

We’re hybrid-remote, and most of your colleagues will not share an office with you on a day-to-day basis. This means you should also have:

  • A high degree of comfort adopting new software tools for document drafting, collaboration and communication.
  • Comfort operating autonomously/ self starter
  • A love of writing - we have a major amount of written documentation that you will be contributing to, and we place a high degree of importance on clarity and readability (you can find out more here about how we write )

What will you be doing here?

As the Commercial Analyst at Griffin, you will...

  • Support the development and maintenance of operational, financial and pricing models for customers and market sizing.
  • Work with the solutions director, the product team and customers to develop exciting customer propositions.
  • Support the development of reporting for the commercial team, performance metrics and risk appetite tracking
  • Work with the client solutions director in analysing data on customer behaviour and market trends and provide the commercial team with insights to support acquisition strategy
  • Provide support for any ad hoc projects or initiatives related to commercial activity

What can we offer you?

We are an early stage startup and we're working hard to expand our benefits package. We're planning to add to this list in the future.

  • 25 days off a year + bank holidays
  • Flexible, remote-friendly working - including supporting home office setup
  • Tax-advantaged stock options under HMRC's Company Share Option Plan (CSOP)
  • Auto-enrolment into company pension scheme
  • Enhanced parental leave with up to 6 months at full pay
  • Private medical insurance and life insurance (provided by Vitality and AIG respectively)

How do I apply?

Are we your next move? Apply via the link below, if there's a match our Talent team will reach out to schedule an initial conversation and talk you through our interview process in detail.

N.B: We have a small London office in Moorgate, and we are comfortable hiring people to work from anywhere in the UK. About half of the company is based within occasional commuting distance of London, the other half is full-time remote.

Our goal is for Griffin to proportionally represent the diversity of the working population in society. We’re working to ensure that Griffin is a supportive, empowering and inclusive environment for every member of our team — whatever your combination of race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, physical ability, nationality, neurodiversity, and religious beliefs. If you’re part of a group that is under-represented in fintech, we’d love to hear from you

Griffin Bank Ltd request that recruitment agencies do not speculatively submit CVs to any employee or associate of our company unless explicitly asked to do so by a member of our Talent team.

Any CVs sent to any member of our team on a speculative basis will not be recognised and we will not accept liability for any fee or commission should we subsequently employ a candidate who applied to us directly or was introduced by an instructed agency that may also have been submitted speculatively by an uninstructed agency.
