Curve, the banking service which aggregates multiple bank cards into one, has opened a new satellite office in Bristol with plans to hire up to 30 employees.

The new office will be dedicated to customer service for Curve’s more than 630,000 card holders, with Liam Brady appointed Customer Experience lead for the new Bristol office.

Curve’s had an incredible year of funding announcements with $55m secured in July as part of its Series B from Gauss Ventures, IDC Ventures and Outward VC which valued the business at $250m.

Then, in September, Curve broke its own crowdfunding expectations by raising an additional £6m via Crowdcube.

The company says it now expects to reach over 1m customers before the end of 2019, with the customer service demand rising rapidly.

 “We’re thrilled to be able to welcome an additional 30 new talented members to our Bristol team over the coming months,” said Brady. 

“There has never been a better time to join Curve and as the company’s reputation and user base continues to grow, now is the ideal time to rapidly enhance our customer team. I don’t think there is a better, more welcoming city in the world than Bristol in which to be able to do that.”

Earlier this year Curve launched Curve Cash which included 1% cashback from certain chosen retailers, Curve Customer Protection which protects purchases made up to £100,000, and Curve subscriptions including Travel Insurance, Gadget Insurance and airport lounge access.
