Company:

This is a unique opportunity to join Fundbox (www.fundbox.com), an innovative fintech company with a mission to help the small business ecosystem prosper by empowering small businesses with fair financial solutions.  The company’s first product leverages deep data analytics to enable businesses to accelerate cash flow against their outstanding invoices.  The Fundbox risk engine taps into numerous data signals both outside and within its proprietary B2B credit network to assess customers and invoices for risk automatically and instantly, allowing small businesses to choose which invoices to clear with a single click.  

Founded in 2012, Fundbox has raised over $100 million from leading Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, finance veterans, and venture capitalists, including Khosla Ventures, General Catalyst, Spark Capital Growth, SV Angel, Blumberg, Jeff Bezos and former Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit, among others.  The company has over 90 employees (and growing!) across its headquarters in San Francisco and office in Tel Aviv.
