    The Client

    Harmonic is delighted to be working with an incredibly fast-growing Tech start-up operating in the SAAS sector. Their subscription-based business model has proven resilient during the current crisis with consistent growth over April, May, and June.

    They are forecasting revenue growth of 100% for 2021 and are planning to invest heavily in their finance function!

    Having just raised substantial funds in their Series A investment round they are now hiring a Financial Controller to join the team and help take the business to the next stage!

    The business is looking to rapidly progress through series B and C funding rounds in the next 1-2 years and is therefore looking to bring on ambitious, skilled staff to help them achieve this goal.

    Based in a vibrant London office this start-up boasts an amazingly diverse and talented team both in leadership and below. The culture is relaxed and non-corporate whilst boasting a 'work-hard, play-hard' reward system with regular company socials and lunches.
