Pleo is hiring a

Student assistant in Commercial Operations

Copenhagen, Denmark

Cash is old school. Out of pocket expenses suck. Workplaces need to be more trusting, progressive and – that's right, we're gonna say it – fun.

And that's what we're here to do. But we need your help.

Pleo is looking for a student assistant to join our Commerical Operations team in our amazing HQ in front of the lakes in Copenhagen.

For our Commercial Operations team, we are seeking a student assistant to support the maintenance of our systems and processes. The right candidate will help with securing and optimizing existing processes in our CRM system, ensuring data quality and support with Ad-hoc analysis. It is expected that the right candidate will take ownership of his/her responsibilities and grow in the role to take on more challenge tasks. 

Commercial Operations is a cross-functional discipline which goes across many disciplines such as the demand and opportunity management process, sales planning and forecasting, as well as monitoring business performance. Hence this is a unique opportunity to learn more about the many aspects of running a business, the decision processes and prioritisations needed to execute on strategic projects and insight into where the company is going. 


Who are we?

We are a Danish fintech startup - well, not that much of a startup anymore, but our values are deeply and strongly shaped around that. That being said, we believe in a flat hierarchy and bottom-up decision making: from being around our offices, to the team meetings and our vocal slack community, working with us you will find a place where every voice is heard, where people spar their ideas and are not afraid to ask questions and improve themselves and others. We listen to each other and adapt accordingly.



You will thrive in this role if you

  • Know your way around Excel/ Sheets/ SQL 
  • Interested in optimizing processes
  • Have an analytical mindset 
  • Knowledge of CRM systems or interested in learning more about them.
  • Structured in your way of working
  • Have a genuine passion to understand data and the story behind it
  • Can connect the dots and read in-between the lines and combine statistical and business perspectives to uncover the underlying story in any data
  • Have a positive can-do attitude 

Your colleagues say you

  • Work in English with ease (it's our company language)
  • Are easy to work with 
  • Continuous learner, systematic
  • Ask for feedback all the time
  • Are a person they would also enjoy having a coffee with (virtual or not)

Your mom says that you

  • Work with numbers
  • Love knowing how things work and solving challenges
  • Love to get things done
  • Are positive - the glass is half-full
  • Were always going to make her proud (moms)
  • Asked a loooooot of questions as a kid!

What we do

Pleo focuses on making business spending seamless. 


Our angle to do this is through company spending; we’ve built a product that gives trust and autonomy to all employees: everyone gets a company card and spends company money responsibly. No expense reports. No time wasted. Decentralisation of decision making. Delegation through ownership. That's our focus. We can't be hypocrites with a product doing one thing and then internally doing another: so the future workplace permeates through the way we work. We certainly aren't perfect, and we're not striving for perfection. Instead, we're striving to be pioneers: we want our product to change workspaces, and so our workspace is a place of constant change.


Show me the benefits!

  • Your own Pleo card (no more out-of-pocket spending)
  • Flexible working remote options for those onsite (just speak to your team)
  • Quarterly trips to somewhere for team camps (both company-wide ones and team-specific ones). The last one was in Northern Ireland in December (2019)
  • Investment in learning & developing (just check with your team for what's reasonable, we don't have set budgets)

And here are some other nice gestures that we do

  • Catered lunch in our HQ and London offices when you're here
  • Loads of weird and wonderful niche communities to join in the company (we're talking guerrilla gardening, liquids tasting, the Pleo band, learning to code initiatives, beer brewing, skiing, Pleo dinners, that type of thing)
  • Wild enthusiasm and encouragement from us if you want to host MeetUps, events, etc - we'll help (venue, food etc)


The reason most of us work at Pleo is that we want to change the workplace of today. We are motivated by companies trusting with us and giving us the autonomy to work in the best way for us - and for the company.


Pleo solves today's company spending problem. We empower companies with an app that links up to pre-paid cards. Every person gets a card and is trusted with spending company money. After all, if you're trusted enough to be hired, you should be trusted enough with spending money responsibly.


Being HQ'd out of Copenhagen means we're inspired by sensible things like a good work-life balance. If you don't work in one of our offices with us we'll help you get up the best remote setup possible, and will fly you in once a quarter for team camps.


Sometimes, we want to show some cool things happening here at Pleo 👇
