Owning your own home should be one of the most exciting times of your life. But for too long it’s been overshadowed by the daunting process of getting a mortgage. We’re working to change that. At Trussle we’re using data, design, and technology to solve the mortgage problem once and for all.
Having raised investment of £19.3M from leading investors including Goldman Sachs Principal Strategic Investments, launched key partnerships with players such as uSwitch and Zoopla, and becoming the highest-rated online mortgage broker on Trustpilot, we’re well placed to continue our rapid growth.
At Trussle, we’re not just building the best online mortgage experience for home owners. We’re also building a second home for our employees, with the necessary support to help them get out just as much as they put in. We’re very aware that our team spends the majority of their waking hours at our office. So we invest in every one of them - from providing regular lunches, socials, and meditations sessions, to offering a week’s paid Learning & Development budget so they can learn outside the office too. We may be a tech company, but we believe it’s our people that make Trussle our second home.
About the Customer Operations team
Our Customer Operations team is the largest team at Trussle and has the very important responsibility of looking after our customers. We’re proud that our customers have rated our service 9.6/10 on TrustPilot, and we work closely as a team to constantly improve their experience by being brave with new initiatives and learning quickly from the valuable feedback customers give us.
If you have any questions while signing up to Trussle, you might speak with one of our friendly Customer Success Associates on live-chat. Once you’ve completed your profile, you’ll speak with your dedicated Mortgage Expert, and they’ll find you the most suitable mortgage deal from over 90 lenders. Then one of our Case Managers will walk you through the process until you have your mortgage offer. Our Completions Manager will then guide you through the process until your mortgage completes, which is when it’s time to celebrate!

The best ideas are often the least expected and require new ways of thinking; that’s why our teams at Trussle are made up of an incredible range of talented people. Trussle is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.

Trussle is the new hassle-free way to get a mortgage. We help first-time buyers and existing homeowners save time and money securing a great-value mortgage online.
It’s been estimated that one in two mortgage holders in the UK are losing £4,000 each year by not switching to better deals; that’s a £29bn headache for the country’s homeowners, and a headache that our founder Ishaan experienced first-hand. That’s why our service doesn’t end once we’ve secured you a great-value mortgage; we continue to monitor the market for the lifetime of your mortgage and help you switch to a better deal later on. That way, you’ll never pay more than you should.
Trussle launched in December 2015 as the UK’s first online mortgage adviser, after months of customer development, user testing, and cutting through red tape. We’re backed by some of Europe's leading technology investors including Orange Growth Capital, LocalGlobe, Ed Wray (founder of Betfair), Ian Hogarth (founder of Songkick), Seedcamp, and Zoopla Property Group. Trussle is FCA registered.
