Funding Circle was created with a big idea: to revolutionise the broken financial system and secure a better deal for everyone.
We have created the leading small business loans platform in UK, US, Germany and Netherlands; a marketplace that directly connects credit worthy businesses with investors wanting attractive returns.
In just eight years, 80,000 Funding Circle investors have lent £5 billion to 50,000 businesses across the world. In addition, in 2017 lending through our platform created and sustained 75,000 jobs worldwide and contributed £4 billion to the global economy.
Technical Project Managers are the driving force behind Funding Circle's key projects and programs. TPMs are often embedded into the team they work with and are tasked to ensure teams are aligned with the goals of the project and larger portfolio. Project Managers have the opportunity to work with a variety of technical and non-technical personnel. You may build detailed work plans, track milestones and build reports to communicate your teams' successes to relevant stakeholders. Some TPMs facilitate functional design and architecture sessions, as well as track and manage resolution of technical issues.
