Background & Objectives

Country Manager - Spain : Unique opportunity to join an award-winning and fully funded fintech startup based in the heart of Soho (London, UK).There are more than 20 million small businesses across Europe, many with limited or no access to financing. Our data-driven lending platform changes that, offering fast access to funding as and when required. We launched in 2012 and have since grown rapidly, raising significant funding from highly regarded VC firms on the way.Our philosophy is that data is the core of decision-making, and the institution that has access to the most data and understands it best will win. Banks are behind the curve and the emergence of new data sources provides a fertile ground for young tech companies like us. Initially our focus was on lending to e-commerce retailers based in the UK, especially small commercial sellers on eBay and Amazon. While a large and rapidly growing sector in its own right, we chose this niche for our launch product because of the huge quantities of easily-accessible data available. Now, having witnessed exceptional growth in our core business we are expanding both internationally and into general small businesses lending. Our long-term goal is to be the largest small-business lender in Europe.Founded by two investment bankers from Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank, we are looking for exceptional talents to join the team. The environment is highly entrepreneurial and people who are hands-on and street smart will enjoy the freedom and room for growth.Your role:As a country manager for Spain, you will be part of the international expansion team. You will help establish a comprehensive go to market strategy that covers all regulatory, product, market and financial aspects. Thereafter you will be a driving force behind the roll out. This is a fantastic opportunity to build a startup-within-a-startup, with strong responsibilities, and the chance to achieve game-changing results in the industry, with the support of our existing UK operations and experience. Starting date and duration are flexible.Who are you?You are a native Spanish speaker, most preferably from Spain. Ideally with previous experience in the banking / investment banking or consulting industry. You are at ease with paperwork, regulatory issues and strategic planning, and you enjoy interacting with team mates and partners as well.
