    Head of Commercial Finance | Fast Growth SaaS Start-Up | London

    I am working with a very fast growth SaaS start-up company based out of North America, who are looking for a high calibre Commercial Finance Analyst to join the UK office here in London.

    The company secured their Series A funding last year at the hands of renowned international VC companies who have a reputation for backing SaaS and Tech success stories. They are set to add to this funding with a Series B round expected later this year.

    After considerable growth over recent years, the start-up's headcount has risen to over 50 people across 3 offices in 3 different continents worldwide (Asia, North America and Europe). Their client base spans even further afield with customers in every continent.

    Currently residing in a modern office in central London, they are an outgoing and social group who know how to work hard and grind out results. As if that isn't enough, they have regular visitors to the office in the form of dogs (who doesn't like dogs?!).
