  • Establishing robust controls, monitoring, and testing programs.
  • Developing professionally in an entrepreneurial organization, allowing you to work in areas of your interest.
  • Utilizing analytical tools (e.g., SQL, Python, or similar) to analyze data, identify trends, and challenge business decisions.

You should have:

  • 1-3 years of experience in consulting, investment banking, fintech/payments companies, or other high-growth organizations in a quantitative or analytical role.
  • A degree from a university in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, or a Business field.
  • An outstanding track record in optimizing business performance and identifying gaps in business strategy, particularly in financial services and credit risk.
  • Tech-savviness, with the ability to write rules for credit decisions.
  • Proficiency in data extraction and manipulation, as well as programming languages (SQL, R, Python, MatLab, Java, C#, etc.).
  • Significant drive, ambition, and a structured problem-solving approach.
  • Excellent stakeholder management skills.
  • A curious mindset and a love for questioning the "why."
  • Proficiency in verbal and written English communication.

Who You Are

  • As part of our diverse, collaborative teams based in Stockholm, London, and New York, you will challenge the status quo and help us achieve our objectives.
  • We value problem solvers, initiative takers, and those who can identify opportunities for improvement.
