About RoosterMoney

RoosterMoney is a pocket money & allowance tracking app that helps parents teach their kids the value of money in a digital age. Simple, progressive and gameful, we bring to life all the sound traditional financial principles we were brought up with (or wish we were!) and make managing money smart, fun & relevant for the modern world.

We believe the world would be a better place if we all talked about money a little earlier on in life. Research shows that our money habits are formed by the age of seven. That’s a pretty amazing opportunity to help give kids a head-start in building habits that will stick with them for life.

Our team are scattered across the UK and beyond, but communicate as if they are together on a daily basis. We operate a remote first culture, but make time to all get together every couple of months (when permitted).

Why RoosterMoney?

Hundreds of thousands of families have downloaded the RoosterMoney app since our launch in January 2016 and we have over 51 currencies being used by children around the world.

RoosterMoney has been featured in The Times, Telegraph, Guardian, Wall Street Journal, New Zealand Herald to name a few. We’ve been on CNBC and are considered experts in our field.

Alongside our app, we’ve launched the Rooster Card in the UK, a prepaid Visa card for kids with parental controls. This product has been designed with our users in mind, and presents lots of exciting new opportunities for both the product and customer operations teams. We are scaling rapidly which offers lots of scope to grow for anyone joining the company.
