About Cleo

Most people come to Cleo to do work that matters. Every day, we empower people to build a life beyond their next paycheck, building a beloved AI that enables you to forge your own path toward financial well-being.

Backed by some of the most well-known investors in tech, we’ve reached over 5 million users and plan to double that number each year... which is where you come in.

The role:

You’ll be a key member of our Machine Learning and Chat pillar that is responsible for Cleo’s ability to have meaningful and delightful conversations with our users. 

Outcome 1: Improve Cleo’s ability to converse with, guide and coach our users

  • Continue to improve our contextual intent recogniser so we have chatflows that cover a broad set of user jobs to be done
  • Tune LLMs for our major user intents, ensuring that they reflect Cleo’s tone of voice and personality
  • Ensure we have tools to quickly create and manage new intents, chatflows and replies

Outcome 2:  Increase our understanding of users’ financial data and goals in order to have meaningful conversations

  • Focus on accurate identification and categorisation of users’ income, bills, expenses, savings and debts
  • Increase user engagement with chat, and chat as a driver of retention
  • Ensure that the squad’s work aligns with the strategic direction/discovery work from other squads on what users are willing to pay for in the financial advice/coaching space

You should apply if you:

  • As a guide, you'll have 5+ years of experience in a product role involving data science/machine learning, experience in personalisation/recommendations is a plus 
  • Enjoy being hands on with a cross functional team of analysts, designers, data scientists and engineers
  • Able to say “no” more than you say “yes” to keep the squads focused on the most impactful priorities, but also able to communicate clearly with stakeholders and get alignment
  • Work collaboratively with your product squad and involve them in strategy and decision-making 
  • Bring creativity into how we approach financial products. We're radically changing how people interact with and feel about their finances. This means thinking about problems in a different way, and we encourage PMs from all backgrounds to apply.
  • Bring energy and drive to ensure your product is successful. People would describe you as a force of nature who cares about their team

How long will the process take?

We aim to move as fast as possible. Usually 2-3 weeks is enough time for us all to get to know each other.

  • Step 1: Call with a member of our Talent Team to find out more about your experience and why you want to work at Cleo
  • Step 2: 45-60 minutes with another of our ML focused Product Managers
  • Step 3: Live product task interview, to be presented to one of our Product Managers and Data Scientists
  • Step 4: 45 minutes each with two cross-functional peers from Engineering, Design or Analytics

What do you get for all your hard work?

  • Work at one of the fastest-growing tech startups, backed by top VC firms, Sofina, Balderton & EQT Ventures
  • A clear progression plan. We want you to keep growing. That means trying new things, leading others, challenging the status quo and owning your impact. Always with our complete support.
  • Flexibility: We work to live, we don’t live to work. Cleo works with everyone on our team to ensure that they have the balance they need to reach their full potential.
  • Work where you work best. We’re a globally distributed team. If you live in London we have a hybrid approach, we’d love for you to spend one day a week or more in our beautiful office. If you’re outside of London, we’ll encourage you to spend a couple of days with us a few times per year. And we’ll cover your travel costs, naturally.

UK App access: The Cleo app is no longer downloadable in the UK. Why? 99% of our users are based in the US – where financial health is often overlooked. We’ve decided to shift our focus to where we can provide the most value and make the greatest impact.
