Veygo careers: Simon's story

Prior to working at Veygo Simon worked at a mobile network called Giffgaff, based in West London.  His primary role was running the handset financing operation and he was also responsible for FCA governance and was involved in new financial services products such as open banking. Simon also had experience consulting various companies around new business ideas, and worked for lenders and insurers in various roles (starting in sales!!) over the past 20 years. 

What is your role within Veygo?
I am currently Principal Product Manager for Veygo with responsibility for the Veygo Rentals product. This requires management of the product, setting the longer term strategic vision and roadmap, and dealing with issues as they arise.

How did you get into your role and how does it differ from anything you’ve done before?
I was working in London and had been for over 5 years but I was looking to return to Cardiff. I was very clear about the role, and more importantly the type of company that I wanted to join. I wanted that start-up feel, where experimentation was encouraged and that you would be part of something that was pushing the way in which a product or service developed. I saw the job advert on LinkedIn and was immediately taken with the vision of what Veygo was and where it wanted to go. It is very different from the more corporate roles that I have previously done, which for me is a good thing.

What is your favourite thing about working in Veygo?
It sounds cliché but the people I work with are the favourite part of my role, I work with talented, intelligent people that push and challenge and are excited to be building a product that is different and is well-liked by our customers. 

What would your advice be for anyone thinking of joining Veygo?
If you can talk to prospective managers before any formal interviews, do it - I helps you get a really clear idea of the culture of the business. There is no one size fits all here!!
