Job Description

We started iZettle with the mission to empower small-businesses to sell smarter by offering them the tools typically reserved for bigger players. We started with a no-hassle point of sale system and have come a long way, but there is so much exciting work ahead of us! And we need the best and brightest to help us get it done. We were founded in 2010, we’re one of Europe’s fastest growing software startups, and we currently have 450 employees across 12 operating countries, with offices in Berlin, London, Edinburgh, Madrid, Mexico City, Sao Paulo and Stockholm (HQ).

iZettle is looking for two talented interns to join our Capital team in Stockholm. The Capital department is responsible for the financial products which fuel our merchants’ growth and provide them with working capital to run their business. We’re a “startup within a startup” – we’re building a fast growing lending business on top of the iZettle platform and user base.

The first person we’re looking for will work on optimizing sales and distribution of our existing product while also exploring new offerings. Specifically, the core tasks of this role will revolve around 1) growing our existing merchant cash advance product, 2) streamlining our operations, and 3) researching and progressing the development of new product offerings.

The second individual will work on treasury and finance related projects. The main initiatives that this role will focus on include 1) analysis of portfolio performance and explaining results and deviations compared to the financial plan, 2) modeling for business cases, and 3) recurring reporting to management and other internal/external stakeholders.

Both roles require analytical and quantitative experience, project management skills, business sense and a great attitude. You will lead your own projects from start until delivery. You will help address day-to-day questions and collaborate with colleagues from other departments. And, in general, you appreciate the importance of capital for small-businesses, you’re interested in fintech (i.e. finance, payments & technology) and you’re truly pumped about helping to build the next great startup!

A successful intern will also have a good chance at being offered a post graduation full time employment.

Responsibilities:

  •    Help develop new financial product propositions by carrying out research and analysis, putting together business cases, and coordinating the work to launch a pilot.
  •    Support sales and growth by helping the sales team with guidance and action while also handling special cases/requests from merchants.
  •    Analyze and explain the performance of our portfolio.
  •    Assist financial reporting to management and other internal/external stakeholders.
  •    Ad-hoc projects that range from presentations and quantitative modelling to designing and documenting processes.

Requirements:

  •    We understand you’re a student, so it’s most important for us that you’re sharp, hardworking and engaged in our business. It’s great if you have worked in a similar role, but prior experience isn’t a hard requirement.
  •    At least 2 years of coursework with proven results in Economics, Business, Engineering, Statistics, Finance, Mathematics or similar.
  •    You “skate to where the puck is going” as hockey-legend Wayne Gretzky put it. In other words, you are a hustling self-starter – you see an opportunity and then you go for it.
  •    Some experience working with data and Excel (it’s a bonus if you know SQL or a programming language).

This is a full-time, paid internship starting in June (or sooner if possible) and lasting approximately until August 31st with the possibility of continuing on a part-time basis while you study (or becoming a full-time position). Sounds interesting? Please send in your CV (1 page) and cover letter in English or feel to give me a call at 076-001 96 74 (Justin).

When working at iZettle, you can expect interesting challenges, as well as a great team. Join us to get a chance to truly make a difference for entrepreneurs all around the world.
