iwoca started in 2012 and was born out of the frustration that small businesses lack the access to finance they need to reach their potential. Their belief then was that technology must enable people to significantly shorten the archaic 8-week bank application process which more often than not results in a ‘no’. Nearly a decade later and they have served more than 50,000 businesses across the UK and Germany with more than £2 billion of finance.
They are currently hiring for a debt finance structurer to join their capital markets team in London to support the origination and execution of private asset financing transactions.
