Sales Manager - EMEA (French/German speaker)

Last updated 10 hours 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.

The role
As we continue to grow and work with some of the biggest financial institutions in the world, we are looking for a Sales Manager who can speak French &/or German to support our growth in EMEA, reporting to the Head of Sales - EMEA.
