If you are looking to join a FinTech start-up with incredible prospects for the future, look no further. This organisation is a high-tech account-to-account payments company. Its mission is to make payments easy by leveraging open banking and innovative financial technology. They have just announced that one of the largest banks is creating a new payment platform, and this organisation is one of the three organisations that have been instructed. They require someone to come in from a Legal and Operations perspective to help them shape the future growth of the business, including in other jurisdictions such as the EU.
They are a small business, snowballing. Nine months ago, there were 3 of them. They are now at around 20 people with plans to expand to 40 this year.
It aims to reduce trade frictions, make inefficient markets efficient, and speed up economic progress.
They are operating in an exciting space with limitless potential, and they are already growing at an incredible pace, but there's plenty left to do, and they need a great lawyer to help them achieve their goals.
You will find their approach refreshing and inspiring; their culture is based on valuing every staff member.
The Role: Legal & Operations:
The company has bases in London and Oxford, and you can be largely remote in this role with attendance to an HQ where required on an ad-hoc basis.
They are looking for an experienced Lawyer to lead its legal and compliance responsibilities. You should take ownership of your work and be proud of the company you are building.
This role is an exciting opportunity to see you become a key figure in a rapidly growing business. You will be working closely with both the CEO and the CTO, the two co-founders, managing the company and driving forward its expansion efforts.
Though this is a legal role, you should have a strong interest in business, technology and finance. You will have to balance between maturity in governance and processes and the practical considerations of a fast-growth scale up.
They work as a team, utilising collective experience and knowledge. Naturally, they will be supportive when required, but this does not slow down their decision-making agility.
Salary & Benefits
All in all, this is an excellent opportunity to work for this growing start-up in the FinTech world either remotely or from their office in London or a mixture of the two.
