🤹♂️🤹♀️ We're big on keeping Bud a social team, so Christmas and Summer parties can be a big deal. We also put on events and have a new social committee every quarter to keep it exciting in normal times. At the moment we have remote events which change often depending on what the teams are interested in.
A bit more about us
We’re a diverse group of people. With backgrounds ranging from data science to music production, more than 80% of our team come from outside the world of finance – providing us with a unique perspective as we help consumers feel more in control of their lives. For us, an interest in people comes first; finance follows.
More about what we're doing
The APIs and infrastructure we’re building are designed to place the power of personal data back into the hands of normal people. Picture this: a world where your bank knew you were paying too much for your gas bill and could switch you to a more suitable provider, or understood your savings targets and could automatically find you a better deal. That’s what we’re working towards.
We believe that diversity will make us better
Bud’s mission is to create the world’s most compelling financial data products. Getting there requires a workforce as diverse as the people we create our products for, be that in terms of age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, or ways of thinking. We truly believe that these differences will make us grow as a company and a team. We strive to create a workplace and culture where our people are empowered, supported, given equal opportunities and can bring their authentic selves to work.
