Ben Chisell

Product Director

As Starling’s Product Director, Ben jointly manages the product and design team, using data to improve the relationship between customers and their money, and to help the business make better decisions. Ben was previously Product Lead for Amazon Video, and is keen to bring their brand of Customer Obsession to Starling.

After graduating in aerospace engineering from the University of Cambridge, Ben spent four years in London and California leading the development of eBay’s search engine and its first steps into machine-learning. Stints at Skimlinks and Arthur D Little followed.

After a while working for large, US-headquartered tech companies, Ben joined Starling because he wanted to solve problems that could have a meaningful impact on people’s lives, and to help develop an exciting new tech brand in London from the ground up.

If he wasn’t at Starling, Ben would probably be travelling around the world watching sport and sampling the local cuisine.
