A fully remote role based for UK based company

Role Overview 🚀

At Uncapped, we help ambitious founders realise their dreams. We are seeking a highly motivated Due Diligence Associate to join the Services Team to help our customers to cross the finish line after applying for our product. You will own the design of core customer due diligence processes, ensuring we can maximise throughput and minimise risk exposure whilst optimising for a best-in-class customer onboarding experience. You’ll work closely with your colleagues in Product, Services and Risk to create processes that can help us scale at pace.

About Uncapped 👫

Founded in 2019, Uncapped is the fastest, most affordable way for growing online businesses to fund marketing and inventory. The company was born out of frustration with the limited financing options available for UK and European entrepreneurs to finance growth.

Uncapped provides business advances of between £10k and £5m without credit checks, personal guarantees, warrants, equity, or compounding interest -- and makes money by charging a low flat fee that is paid back from future sales revenue.

Uncapped has raised $120 million from investors including Lakestar, Mouro Capital, Global Founders Capital, White Star Capital, Seedcamp, and All Iron Ventures.

About the Services Team 🔎

We are responsible for being the main customer point of contact during their journey at Uncapped. Our talks are about all the different subjects! You will learn about how different businesses operate around the countries we support in the many lines of business. A normal day in this team will never be a boring one! There is always something different happening, and we need to think about how we will tackle this keeping the customer's best interest in mind.
