Job Description

We're bringing financial services in the Philippines into the 21st century

Providing financing to small businesses is critical for their growth and development. Supported by First Circle a growing business enters a virtuous cycle of growth, employment, and prosperity for their environment. Currently businesses are badly served by inefficient providers who take weeks to process applications and charge crazy rates. This is what we want to change.

We're using technology to remove the inefficiencies and reduce the time from application to approval from average 30 days to one day. This is a big challenge that will require a talented operational team to execute. We want to build the best and most ambitious operations team in the Philippines.

About the Company

Our multinational team of Europeans and Filipinos come from investment banking, consulting, and technology backgrounds.
We consider ourselves more "Startup" than "Financial Services Company". We have worked in both startup and corporate environments in the past and think there's a lot to be gained from introducing the best aspects of startup mentality into an industry which has been historically very corporate.
Our management team have held senior roles in a large pan-Asian startup which grew from a handful to 200+ employees. Our technology is advanced and underpinned by a high-energy account management team.
We're young and driven. The average age of our company is under 30. We are excited by coming to work and relish the challenge of getting better every day.
Great people believe in us. We raised some money in 2015 from a stellar group of investors including 500Startups Asia.

About the Role

This is a day-to-day operations role. We need an ambitious candidate who is organized, good at solving problems and has great communication skills.
This is an exciting role that will be central and touch on all aspects of the business. The successful candidate will gain an insight into all parts of the organization and will report directly to an Operations Manager and the COO.
We believe in uncapped careers. An ambitious candidate will earn a high income and be afforded the opportunity to be promoted in a short space of time.
Our long term aim is to become a lifelong financial services partner for our clients to watch them grow from small to medium and beyond. Our operations team will underpin and ensure the successful delivery of our services to our clients.

About First Circle
# We're bringing financial services in the Philippines into the 21st century For small businesses in the Philippines, credit is one of the most vital services for growth and prosperity. For businesses who need quick access to short term credit, their current options are limited. Existing paper-based processes to apply for a loan are long, arduous and inefficient. This is what we want to change. We're using technology to remove the inefficiencies and reduce the time from application to approval from average 30 days, to one day. This is a big challenge that will require a talented technical team to execute. We want to build the best technical team in the Philippines, and are currently on the lookout for our first engineering hire. # About The Company - We come from a variety of backgrounds. As well as our European co-founders, our team comprises several Filipinos across business development, servicing, and underwriting. - We consider ourselves more "Startup" than "Financial Services Company". We have worked in both startup and corporate environments in the past, and think there's a lot to be gained from introducing the best aspects of startup mentality into an industry which has been historically very corporate. - We know software. Our CTO was Founding Engineer and CTO at a large European startup which grew from 10 employees to 150. Software and product are in our DNA, and we believe are pivotal to our success. Software is not an afterthought to facilitate a product. It __is__ the product. - We're young and driven. The average age of our company is under 30. People who work here tend do get excited by coming to work. - Great people believe in us. We raised some money in 2015 from a stellar group of investors including 500Startups Asia.
