About Allica Bank

Allica is the UK’s fastest growing company - and the fastest-growing financial technology (fintech) firm ever. Our purpose is to help established SMEs, one of the last major underserved opportunities in fintech. Established SMEs are the backbone of local communities - representing over a third of our economy - yet have been largely neglected both by traditional high street banks and modern fintech providers

Department Description

Allica is building out its growth function, based around talented, empowered and autonomous individuals who will be responsible for product-based customer acquisition using a combination of channels to meet objectives set across the business. You will get an opportunity to work with different teams across the business including marketing, product squads, distribution, engineers and operations to deliver on Allica’s mission of becoming the UK’s most recommended business bank.

We are rare amongst banks in that our senior leadership team includes backgrounds at world-leading financial fintech firms, which shows in their active engagement with our product squads, and in our bank-wide adoption of modern tools and techniques such as Scrum and Jira.

Role Description

As the Technical Product Manager, in collaboration with the Product Manager, you will be part of a cross-functional squad comprising data engineers and analytics engineers. You will also work closely with peers in functions such as Marketing, Distribution, and Operations. The squad's goal is to deliver elegant customer analytics solutions that enable effective customer acquisition.

You will be responsible for driving the team's roadmap, managing day-to-day activities, overseeing development, planning, execution, and defining strategies for addressing risks. Your aim will be to build robust and automated systems and processes that enable rapid innovation in customer acquisition strategies.

We strive to ensure our internal and external systems are the best in the market, allowing us to scale quickly and serve an increasing number of customers in a cost-effective manner.

The ideal candidate is organized, collaborative, focused on delivery, and possesses enough technical expertise to execute small engineering tasks independently when necessary.
