About this role

How can we redesign financial products so they actually reflected our needs, values and ambitions? How would financial services differ if they were accessible to everyone in need? We work on these questions everyday at SCB Abacus and we need an expert researcher to help us. Your research will form the knowledge base that defines our target audience, the products we need to build for them and how we articulate the value of those products as we bring them to market. 

As a researcher, you will help ask the right questions about users  and products, and bring in a wide range of research skills to answer those questions scientifically. You’ll focus on user and market research, uncovering deep insights about what makes borrowers tick. You will partner cross functionally, represent the voice of the customer at the table, and take pride in delivering best-in-class insights.
