About us
We’re here because we believe in small businesses. We believe they deserve better than waiting weeks for a loan. And we believe it’s our job to help them grow.

  • Proven customer relationship management experience.
  • Consultative sales skills that enable you to understand customer needs and match the right product or service to them.
  • Experience explaining complex products and services to customers.

  • Brilliant communication skills with an excellent telephone manner and a passion for delighting customers.
  • A growth mindset that is engaged in our mission, helping us to improve how we convert and serve our customers and motivated to collaborate with team mates.
Don’t take this list as prescriptive: it’s just to give you a sense of who might do well at the job. We’d still love to hear from you if you don’t hit every point on the list, or if you have other experience.
