Our Story
 
We’re empowering people to FeelGood about their money.
 
We’re been on this journey since 2004, when we built the first ever peer-to-peer lending company to give people access to simpler, better-value loans and investments. When it comes to money, we think everyone deserves a fair deal, so since we launched, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of customers to take the stress out of money by building our business on honesty, transparency and trust.
 
Our journey’s always evolving and we’re now launching a bank. But a different type of bank – one that empowers its customers to take control of their finances and FeelGood about their money.

If you embrace being challenged beyond the norm, aren’t afraid to think differently and are motivated by working somewhere you can really make an impact, you’ll love life here at Zopa.

The role:
 
We are looking for a new Systems Analyst to join our Data Engineering Team. We are at an exciting phase on our journey where we are about to launch a new kind of bank, so this is a perfect time to join us.
 
A day in the life:

• Gather relevant information for the Data Engineering Team through self-directed learning, meetings and workshops with product owners and operations managers
• Assessing and mapping current processes, procedures, systems, business interfaces and ways of working and their respective performance across operations
• Meeting all relevant stakeholders to ensure the processes are correct and mapped out for each area
• Understand process and system inter-dependencies between business functions
• Create specifications that translate requirements to the wider Data Engineering Team
