Not full job specification.
Capdesk is looking for someone to join our young and rapidly scaling start-up. We’re changing the world of finance across Europe and we want a smart, hard-working and detail-oriented analyst to help us.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a bright candidate to get into the world of FinTech and take on responsibility as the first junior hire on the team. You’ll see first-hand what it takes to build an industry-leading FinTech startup as you’ll be working closely with the CEO and the Customer Success Manager.
Capdesk is Europe’s leading equity management platform. We help fast-growing companies like Nutmeg and Secret Escapes manage employee share plans and equity. Our vision is to become the preferred stock exchange of the 21st century and we are well on our way.
We launched in Denmark in 2015 and gained customers across the Nordics. In 2016, we moved over to the UK and in 2017/18 we really solidified our presence here.
2020 promises to be a huge year at Capdesk and we want you to help continue our fantastic growth. Capdesk has offices in London and Copenhagen. You will be working at the London office located by Liverpool Street Station.
You will be working with data to successfully onboard clients onto Capdesk. An onboarding case can take anywhere from hours, days to months depending upon its complexity.
The day-to-day role primarily involves working on Google Sheets / Microsoft Excel with client’s data. You will receive data from the client which could be in the form of a spreadsheet, pdf or another format. This needs checking and migrating to a standardised format for upload. There is a potential to communicate / meet with the clients to sort out their data and get it onboarded. It’s up to you to ensure that a high level of detail is taken every step of the way. No half measures. In return you’ll get the opportunity to own the process as the companies grows. If you’ve got a great idea for how to improve the process and make things more efficient you can run with it. If you prove that you are capable and hard-working there will be plenty of opportunity to grow as the company double / triples in size over 2020.
You should be excited about getting in on the ground floor of a fast growing FinTech startup with a presence across Europe. We will teach you the technical aspects of how start-up financing works so we don’t expect a financial background or any formal training. However, this role is best suited to someone who has a natural passion for finance / startups and wants to learn more.
As lots of this role is going to be spent working in Excel / Google Sheets, being competent in navigating spreadsheet software is a must. We don’t expect you to know every keyboard shortcut (although great if you do) or even know Vlookups yet, but you will need to have an aptitude for picking things up quickly if you don’t have previous experience.
The overall job role will involve a lot of hard graft. Maintaining a high level of concentration and attention to detail is a must. As is being process-driven and efficient. We are looking for hires who can grow with the business so that means having a passion for learning and coming up with new ideas. We want people to own the process and continuously look for a better way to get things done.
Ideally, the candidate will have a 2:1 Bachelors degree with a background in a numerate discipline e.g. decent A-Level in Maths or numeracy based degree (e.g. Economics, Stats, Physics). But don’t be put off if that’s not you. Working hard, having the drive to learn, being excited about the business and being a nice person are the most important things for us. If you think you’d be a good fit then send us your CV.
Participation in a fast growing - and proven - international start-up.
Great opportunity to learn a lot, grow quickly and make an impact
A young and informal work environment.
A comfortable, central London office in a great location.
