An Insider's view of Funding Circle

What’s the vibe like in the office?

What attracted me to Funding Circle was more than creating a better funding solution for small businesses. It was the people I would get to work with and the value alignment I was looking for. A company that lives it's values through every decision and interaction is what I believe creates success. It's exciting to see that in action every day.

Jen

Sales Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The biggest problem my team is facing is keeping up with the pace of change in the lending world due to the hardships caused by Covid-19. Through constant collaboration with internal business partners and diligent accounting we're able to overcome the obstacles of the current climate and maintain high service levels for investors and borrowers.
