Content designer

We’re looking for a content designer who can turn complicated information into easy to understand and actionable content. As a seed stage business, we value pragmatism and progress over perfection.

About Prosper

We are on a mission to revolutionise how we save for the longer term.
We are a fintech start up based in the UK with team members across Europe. We are striving to create an investment and savings platform that puts control and choice back in consumers’ hands.
We believe that legacy solutions for long term investing and saving are expensive, the language in them is often complex, the charges obscure or hidden and the digital experiences dated and clumsy.
Meanwhile, the new solutions tend to focus on the first-time investor and are heavily biased toward trading, as opposed to saving for the long term. We are not here to serve the next generation of savers by getting them hooked on RobinHood.
We have set out to create something different.
Because we believe that everyone, from experienced investors to beginners, can benefit from a platform that makes saving for the future easy, accessible and cost-effective.
We know there’s not much to see in the wild about us… yet! But get in touch, and we can show you what we’re working on.
