Senior Customer Operations Manager


At Freetrade, we believe investing should be accessible to everyone. It's one of the best ways to grow your savings but, for many, it seems complicated, expensive, and out of reach.

We're here to change that.

We're a technology company that brings simple investing to everyone. We've built a beautiful app to buy and sell shares and ETFs in a fluid, mobile-first experience.

We're building a team with diverse and unique perspectives in order to help us on our mission to demystify investing.

Our goal is to help our customers achieve better, long-term financial outcomes.

In 2023, we'll be transforming our product, developing new features and introducing new products. In the UK, we now have over 1.4m registered users, offering a range of products like the Freetrade Pension, a stocks and shares ISA, and our premium plan, Freetrade Plus.

Our growth has all been possible because of the backing of a passionate group of over 15,000 crowdfunding investors. As we've scaled, we've also raised money from world-class growth investors including Left Lane Capital, Molten Ventures, and L Catterton.

We're looking for experienced Operations Managers to join our Customer Operations team and ensure we are able to provide a superb quality customer experience in an efficient and highly scalable way.
