Senior Underwriter - Invoice Finance

ABOUT US

“Online business lending with the X-factor” - The Times

At MarketInvoice, our vision is for entrepreneurs to have the time to build the world we all want to live in.

We think entrepreneurs should be able to get on with growing their business, instead of having to worry about cash flow. That’s why we’re making it quick and easy to get funding through our invoice finance and business loans. We’re here to unlock the endless possibilities that arise when entrepreneurs have time to focus on what they love.

With our smart online platform, we were a Fintech before that was even a thing. But it’s not just about the tech. One of our biggest assets is our team of bright, talented and motivated people from all over the world. It’s one of the things our customers value most about us and one of the best things about working here.

We get stuff done quickly at MarketInvoice, with less talk and ore action. It’s about thinking differently and not being afraid to do things that have never been done before.

Culture is a big deal for us. There’s always something happening, from fiercely competitive quiz nights to our Friday Town Hall meetings that roll into socialising on the roof terrace. We work, celebrate, share ideas, eat (lots of biscuits) and are always learning together as a team.

Our values matter and as part of the team, they’ll be yours too:
