With the rest of the behavioural research team, you'll work closely with the head of product and the development team, to make sure we build the right things in the right way. You'll also work closely with the sales team and marketing team to explain our products to prospects and customers, and ensure we design solutions to meet our clients’ needs.
We do not expect applicants to have equally strong expertise in all these areas, but they will all be covered across the team, and we are looking for individuals who are interested in using a broad range of skills to deliver practical solutions. You will have a post-graduate degree, but this could be in behavioural science, data science, finance/economics, or any related subject.
You are more fox than hedgehog.

Good-to-have skills and experience
Oxford Risk has a vision for improving financial wellbeing and helping people make the best decisions to support their life choices. We understand financial decisions are complex and daunting, and we all have anxieties and biases that can get in the way of good outcomes. We’re here to fix that.
We are a small, innovative team with big ambitions. We combine data research, behavioural science, and quantitative finance expertise to develop user-friendly products that support holistic financial decision-making — spanning investment, savings and borrowing. Our technology empowers financial service providers, from fintechs to banks, provide hyper-personalised advice to their clients, for today and fora lifetime of financial decisions.
Having tripled in size since 2018, the last year has seen us move a gear. We’re building our team to expand into new markets, enhance our product offering, and develop new products, including an increasing focus on sustainable investing. There are exciting opportunities to explore the potential for machine learning, and the use of behavioural nudging to improve customers’ ability to stick to their plans and reach their financial goals.
