Job description

About 🍋

Our mission is providing better opportunities to invest in capital markets. By empowering FinTechs and Banks to offer investment products, we help create financial well-being for their customers. In pursuit of this goal we strive to open 100 million securities accounts within Europe in this decade. builds infrastructure for financial services and technology companies powering the next generation of investment products. From enabling a FinTech to launch their first investment product, over allowing e.g. a Neobank to embed investing into their product to bringing investing into a completely new context. Our API-first infrastructure makes launching an investment product customer-centric and compliant. We abstract all complexity for our partners through a well documented API, a self-service customer operations portal and operating in a clear regulatory framework. Enabling partners to launch in weeks, not months.

We have experienced first hand that brokerage infrastructure is broken. Building an investment product used to be highly expensive, challenging and cumbersome. We ease this pain by shielding our partners & their customers from the underlying complexity - and with that we make investing more accessible to everyone. Because that’s exactly what we enjoy, going to places nobody else dares and solving hard problems. This not only creates tons of value when done right, but attracts the smartest minds - because outlier companies are built by exceptional (& diverse) people like you.

Job requirements

You will be successful in this role if:

  • You have a track record of leading E2E Sales processes on the German Market. From prospecting to closing - you know how to bring complicated deals over the finish line.
  • You don’t stick to one playbook. If your approach doesn’t resonate, you are not too proud to readjust and improve. Instead, you get creative and explore new strategies to reach your targets.
  • You have a bias for action over discussion. To avoid getting stuck in discussion, you collect new feedback, try out a different approach or gather data with a proof of concept because you trust the process.
