Chief Revenue Officer

Last updated 21 days ago
Location:Greater London
Job Type:Full Time

FundApps is a SaaS scaleup that helps investment managers monitor and comply with worldwide regulations. We were one of the world's first "RegTechs" and we're shaking up an entire industry. Our client's love what we do (Net Promoter Scores of over 50) and this has lead to phenomenal and consistent revenue growth.

Our first area of focus was to help managers with Shareholding Disclosure, a complex regulatory problem without a fit-for-purpose solution in the market.

Since that time, our service has become the undisputed market leader for the management of Shareholding Disclosure. We have also added new ground-breaking services - Sensitive Industries and Position Limits - and in 2020, have introduced Rapportr to make reporting simple for our clients.

We've won multiple accolades from organisations such as Wired, The Financial Technologist, World Economic Forum and Deloitte. We have a stellar list of high-profile clients, including 3 of the world's 10 largest hedge funds. In total we monitor over $12 trillion in assets under management every single day - this represents ca. 15% of global assets! Better yet, we're just getting started! We have a massive addressable global market and are completely bootstrapped, so have a great amount of freedom in deciding our own destiny.

We're a small team (currently ca. 70 people) of smart, friendly people with 30 nationalities at last count. We have offices in London, New York and Singapore and employees spread across the globe. In 2018, we became a Certified B Corporation and in 2019 were recognised as a B Corp 'Best for the World' Honouree - highlighting our commitment to doing good by our people, the environment and the community.

What you'll be doing

As a member of the leadership team and reporting to the CEO and Founder, you will play a pivotal role in driving and supporting delivery of all of FundApps sales, pre-sales, partnerships and marketing activities globally. You will be a people leader, mentor and coach to an awesome team of professionals, including people leaders, SMEs and those in their first BD gig. You'll also partner with our Product, Client Services, Engineering, Finance and People Ops teams to ensure our delivery and plans are aligned to company objectives and we have a sustainable revenue pipeline to grow our business.

We designed this role as a CRO to represent the level of impact and influence it will have on the growth and future of FundApps, and the breadth of business development and people leadership skills necessary to do the job well. But if you're looking for a job where you can stay at 30,000 ft, this is probably not the right role for you. As a small, growing and dynamic company you can expect to roll your sleeves up and support delivery - from how we tailor our sales process to buyer types and segmentation, to how we mentor and support the career development of our people, to how we coordinate global sales plans, territories and incentive models.
