Why ClearScore?

ClearScore is on a mission to make the world of personal finance clearer, calmer, and easier to understand. It starts with the free credit score and report but we're about to do so much more. We want to take the complex financial decisions that people make in their lives and make them easier.

We hold one of the biggest FinTech user bases in the world of over 22 million users but run ourselves like little start-ups. You’re encouraged to challenge the status quo and fight for the better. Since our launch in July 2015 in the UK we have expanded our product into South Africa in 2017, and Australia in 2020 and Canada in 2022.

Our company culture is a fundamental part of all we have achieved. We believe in hiring smart, driven, passionate and diverse people who are keen on having a real impact in our organization. We trust you to manage your own time, so we offer flexible work and no fixed desk hours. We don’t micromanage and believe in measuring outcomes rather than effort. We have an inclusive culture where all, regardless of seniority, are encouraged to contribute with their ideas, look after their wellbeing and actively seek opportunities for career growth. We also have a super-fast and friendly interview process, which is more like having a friendly discussion than being put under a microscope or pressure. We want to know the real you and if you’d be a great fit for us.
