We believe in the UK’s 6 million small businesses. Since 2011 we’ve pioneered smart technology to give more businesses access to the right finance, faster and at affordable rates.
These businesses have the single biggest impact on our economy and communities. But accessing the finance to bridge today’s funding gaps and fuel tomorrow’s big ambitions is a constant challenge. At MarketFinance we solve these challenges by taking the friction out of finance.
As a team, we’re united by our obsession of understanding what our customers are up against and supporting them at speed. We’re looking for passionate people who want to drive innovation, so businesses can fund the small steps, the giant leaps and everything in between.
MarketFinance has helped thousands of small businesses bridge the gap between completing orders and waiting to collect buyer payments. Since launch we’ve handled over £30 billion in B2B payments and advanced £3 billion in funding. We are now interested in how we evolve our product set to integrate into third party ecosystems, creating an embedded finance offering. Increasingly B2B transactions are going digital and we are very well placed to help various platforms with this transition.
We are looking for an experienced product leader to drive this next phase of our embedded finance offering. This will involve evolving our invoice finance products and adding adjacent solutions such as payments, authentication, reconciliation and working capital finance.
