    Senior Finance Manager | Fast Growth Fintech Start-Up | Post Series B

    The Client

    Harmonic Finance are delighted to be working exclusively with one of the fastest growing Fintech start-ups in the UK.

    The business is undergoing rapid growth having disrupted the market, going from turning over circa £5m in 2019 to £30m in 2021. During this time their headcount has expanded from 50 to 100 and they anticipate 300% revenue growth year on year, while planning for a massive Series C funding round next year to continue their expansion.

    They are based in an excellent office space in the start-up hub that is Shoreditch, with access to many vibrant restaurants, cafes and bars and have an impressive leadership team made up of approachable, visionaries with a passion for scaling the business further. Given the new normal there is of course scope for a hybrid office and home model.
