Job Detail

Description

FundApps is a startup that helps investment managers stay in compliance with global regulations. Our competition is stuck in the dark ages with slow, clunky, complicated user interfaces and installed software. We're shaking up the industry - providing a beautiful & intuitive web-based service which takes away our clients' pains and lets them get on with what they do best.

We've won multiple accolades from organisations such as Wired, World Economic Forum, Deloitte amongst others.

About us

We're a small team (currently 33 people) of smart, friendly people with amazing diversity - 21 nationalities at last count. Our HQ is in London, we have a growing office in midtown Manhattan and soon to be a remote team in Toronto and Auckland. We collaborate very closely and take pride in delivering an amazing service to our clients, who are some of the world's largest asset managers, hedge funds and pension funds. But despite the heavyweight clients we pride ourselves on a fun atmosphere.

We've successfully bootstrapped our way to profitability, so have an incredible amount of freedom when it comes to creating our own destiny. But without the deep pockets of a VC we have to make smart decisions and everyone at FundApps has an agile & lean mindset.
