The Oakam Story

At Oakam, we are disrupting access to credit in underserved communities through a mobile-first approach. Using a unique combination of traditional and alternative data, such as behavioural science data, conversational UI or even psychometric tests, we have built our own proprietary underwriting models. Not only we give people a choice to access fairer credit, we also help our customers rebuild their credit history and adopt better financial habits. Our model has been proven with £350 million in small loans to date. We are on a steep growth trajectory in the UK and internationally!

Our mobile app is the main way that Oakam’s customers apply for a loan, manage their payments, engage with our gamification and financial management features, and improve their financial situation.

  • Some understanding of Algorithms and Data Structures
  • Experience turning UX mockups into working interfaces
  • Experience working with back-end engineers to define APIs that your app will consume
  • Willingness to do what it takes to take your product from concept to launch
