Lead Finance Writer

Job description

What is Snoop?

Snoop is a new kind of platform – powered by Open Banking – that helps consumers win in the daily fight to get good value from the businesses they deal with. Consumers don’t have time to check how they’re spending their money every 5 minutes. But Snoop does – Snoop does it all day and is brilliant at it.

Snoop performs three key tasks for its customers:

  1. Keeps an eye on their bills to make sure they aren’t being ripped off
  2. Scours the internet to find ways for them to save money on the things they already buy
  3. Shows them all their bank accounts in one place, making the process of managing money super-simple.

Snoop’s only goal is to help everyone spend, save and live smarter. Snoop is being built in London and Norwich and launched in April 2020.
