Job Description

Flanks is a Barcelona-based fintech company focused on wealth management services. Its main product is a SaaS solution that helps financial advisors, family offices, private banks and other institutions to have a holistic view of their clients’ financial assets while using the latest scraping technology. We’re currently building the benchmark in the Open Wealth industry, and so far, we managed to have compatibility with over 280 national and international entities.

Thanks to our clients, we continue to grow at a fast pace. We have multiplied our growth by six, built a presence in 11 different countries in the last 18 months. In August 2021, Flanks raised €2.3 million in an investment round led by JME Ventures and SeedRocket 4Founders Capital to accelerate our market expansion.

In order to accelerate our market expansion in Europe and Americas, we would like to count on you to also grow (personally and professionally) with us.

Flanks’s values are:

  • People first: To us, the most important thing is for “Flankers” to feel at ease, for them to get involved in a project and feel part of the team.
  • Keep growing: Our team believes that people growing in lockstep with the company is essential, both personally and professionally.
  • Think twice, act once: We like to think about all the possible consequences for taking any decision that could affect the team or our clients.

If you’re seeking professional growth, and you’re passionate about cybersecurity… This is your opportunity!
