Instead, our client has created a highly disruptive banking model that millions of customers simply love. They have built a game changing technology platform that enables new product releases, features, systems upgrades and is open banking ready. In short, they have set the standard to which other Neobanks aspire to reach.

As part of the executive leadership team, the role supports the CEO with the numbers and provides solutions to scaling and systems challenges.
