Our client is a high growth US fintech venture with a unique disruptive SaaS solution for financial institutions, and since coming to market business really has exploded for them. Within 3 years they have over 700 investment institution clients already, and a team that has quadrupled the past 2 years to over 200 staff (including +100 the past 12 months during covid times), so they've done phenomenally well to date, on a great growth trajectory!
With no direct competitors this company has found a niche with a unique and compelling investment research intelligence proposition for asset managers, hedge funds, private equity & venture capital firms, investment banks and corporations. Here in EMEA they already have c70 clients onboarded from the USA, but it's time to build out a European operation with sales professionals who can pick up and spearhead their expansion plans here. This company is certainly very well positioned to see strong growth which will in turn lead to high earnings and career opportunities for early members of the European operation.
Backed by a great leadership team, disruptive product and inside sales team providing leads, you would certainly be lined up for success with high earning potential, besides growing your career with an exciting disruptive firm.
