At iwoca, our vision is that finance should be like electricity: simple, seamless and powerful. Over the next decade we aim to provide financing to 1 million small businesses that are underserved by the banks. Since launch in 2012, we've lent over £100m to thousands of small businesses across Europe. Along the way we have built a high-tech platform, won numerous awards and have grown a fun and vibrant team.
Over the last 12 months our team has doubled to over 100 people and last summer we closed a $20m Series B funding round, giving us the means to fuel our rapid growth. We’re now looking for an experienced regulatory officer to take on the challenges faced by a fast-growing alternative lender.
