h2. About Loot

Loot is on a mission to shake up the finance industry by empowering young people to know more about their spending, so they can do more with their money. Young people often lack the funds to live the life and have the experience they desire. We believe that with better insights into their spending, a product tailored to their financial needs, and a brand they can truly identify with, young people can have greater financial security and afford the life they want.

You’ll join an ambitious & playful team with diverse & interesting backgrounds, unified by our purpose: to give young people freedom & security in their choices in life. You’ll be working in our central London location, right next to the Thames - often joined by a four-legged furry friend (or two!).

*We don’t care about your sex, race, marital status, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion etc. We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from everyone.*

h2. Our Values

*Hack and Build Fast -* We are true to our challenger brand origins: we’re bold, move fast and apply original thinking to everything we do. We’re less afraid of making mistakes than missing out on opportunities.

*Assume Positive Intent -* We create strong & honest relationships between everyone working in or with Loot. We see the best in each other, as we know we are all here on the same mission.

*Show Your Character -* Life happens when we’re busy working, so we make sure we have a good time - we work hard and laugh harder. We work to build & maintain an inclusive, diverse and playful company culture, where our employees are never afraid to be themselves!

*No Egos -* Loot had unique beginnings: a company of friends without hierarchy or ego. We want to preserve this culture as Loot grows: we don’t pull rank, we are open, honest & humble, and believe that ideas are more important than job titles.

*Act Fearlessly -* Whilst we’re not reckless, we embrace our creativity and take risks. We explore big ideas, even if they initially seem too ambitious or crazy. Everyone at Loot has the space to be heard and speak freely.

*Accountability -* Internally, we hold each other accountable to advance our mission and the decisions we make. Externally, we enable young people to hold themselves accountable for their spending, so that they are empowered to make their own choices in life.
