You'll enjoy this role the most if:

  • You want to be fully remote - forever!

  • You have superb people and sales skills

About the Company

The World Economic Forum predicts that we will need to retrain one billion people by 2030. StudentFinance’s Career Mobility Platform is here to scale upskilling globally.

We are proud to empower economic mobility and change people's lives through revolutionary education financing. Our startup is backed by VCs like Iberis Capital, Mustard Seed MAZE, Armilar VP, Seedcamp and many more. And the news are out - we just raised our Series A funding round and 2023 is a year of acceleration! 📈

💥2023 in a nutshell:

  • We’re upgrading our labor market data intelligence with AI models, technology and machine learning

  • We’re serving the UK and ES markets + opening up our operation in Germany

  • We’re expanding to new and exciting fields of study, such as green skills/net zero transition and healthcare

We are building the infrastructure to offer outcomes-based financing. Through Income Share Agreements (ISA for short), people defer the tuition payment and only start making payments after securing a job. ISAs are all about aligned incentives, and so are we at StudentFinance. Our end game is supporting our customer's transition to employment and financial health.

We are building a world-class team of purpose-driven and entrepreneurial people, working in a remote setting from cities across Europe.
