Founder Associate

Early-stage Fintech seeks first commercial and operations team member

💡What we're looking for

We're looking to hire our first commercial and operations team member to join as a Founders' Associate, working directly with the founders on a wide range of exciting tasks and problems to help build and scale the company. The job is an opportunity for you to gain first-hand experience and exposure in a growing start-up and for your work to be integral to the company's success.

💡What you'll do

  • Example projects:
  • Develop and manage commercial partnerships with banks and accounting technology companies
  • Managing investor relationships with existing and prospective investors as well as preparing materials for board meetings and future funding rounds
  • Supporting individual teams on an ad-hoc basis to create impact where it’s needed most, such as jumping into a Customer Success conversation with a high-value customer, or working with a key supplier to negotiate contracts
  • Help with hiring for key roles
  • Proposing ways to support the operations and culture
  • Contributing to team meetings and off-sites

You will be a great fit if you

  • Incredibly organised, with superb attention to detail and a strong ability to execute
  • Comfortable with autonomy
  • Excellent with time management and quickly shifting tasks as priorities flux, especially as you will be working on multiple projects in parallel
  • You’re curious and interested in making an impact, and perhaps keen to be a founder yourself in the future
  • Excellent communication skills
  • React well under pressure or with task ambiguity
  • Adept at handling sensitive information and situations with care and confidence
  • Proactive - be able to anticipate and respond to the needs of the co-founders before they arise
