  • Manage and negotiate with external stakeholder to develop new products.
  • Optimise and improve daily operations, providing feedback loops and analysing product performance. 
  • Manage reporting flows.
What we are looking for:

  • Adaptable self-starter with a proactive attitude, motivated by working in a fast-paced, fast-changing environment.
  • High attention to detail and accuracy.
  • Logical, structured, organised and data driven.
  • A well rounded personality with strong communication skills to grow and manage relationships with internal and external stakeholders while conveying information clearly.
  • Capacity to manage multiple projects in a logical, structured and disciplined way and initiative to do so autonomously.

  • At least 3 years of work experience. 

  • A competitive compensation package including options.
  • Experience of working in one of the hottest Fintech startups in Europe.
  • A great co-working office space located in the heart of Madrid.
  • Continuous learning and development: you will be challenged with lots of responsibility and exciting projects
  • High-end equipment of your choice.
  • A coaching / mental health program.
  • Free lunch in the office every Thursday!
