Careers at Akoni

Junior sales executive - Job description

We are looking for candidates with 1+ years sales experience, with drive, grit, work ethic and all the other wonderful salesperson hyperbole that these roles require. 

Most of all we care about attitude, the rest we can teach. We want people who want to build a business, not just work for one.

We are demanding, focused and operate a shared set of values around pushing ourselves very hard to be continually learning, adapting and growing!

About Akoni

Akoni is an exciting financial technology (FinTech) start-up who have recently been recognised as one of the top 100 FinTech Influencers for 2018 and as a top 10 UK Tech SME by Forbes.

We have developed a digital cash management system for SMEs to ensure they are not missing out on lost earnings on the cash they have in the bank (we estimate 10+ times more interest can be earned) without the need for multiple bank accounts. The UK’s SMEs are controlling over £300bn in cash, sitting stagnant in their accounts and they are losing money every day.

The Akoni Vision

We are here to transform the business banking landscape - ambitious but true - adding value to customers and increasing their return.

We want to be the best digital cash treasury management platform, innovating financial assets through data and technology.

Really, we want to provide SMEs with the tools to access all opportunities in the financial product market.
