Account Executive



Sales & Business Development
New York, NY, USA
Posted on Saturday, June 24, 2023

The world's largest asset class, debt, operates with the worst data.

Technology has revolutionized equity markets with electronic trading, quant algos and instantaneous news. However, in debt capital markets, the picture is completely different. It still behaves like it’s in the 1980s; trillions of dollars of trades are placed over the phone, news is slow, and corporate credit information is imperfect and scattered.

Our mission is to change this.

9fin's proprietary technology delivers fast and comprehensive financial, credit, legal & ESG analysis. Our clients are able to make faster, more informed decisions, win more business and most importantly, save time.

Our fast growing list of clients include 9 of the top 10 Investment Banks, leading Asset Managers, Hedge Funds and Law Firms.

A note from the hiring manager

"We're at a real inflection point, the European business has more than doubled over the past 12 months quickly becoming the most favored tool in the space. Over here, our US team has stuck the landing in 2023, signing up initial clients across all key verticals.

We’ve built a great culture and are looking to expand the US team in the coming months. Any individual who buys into our mission, shares our values and isn't afraid to learn quickly has a place at 9fin".
