Bondora recruiting for country managers to support EU expansion



Bondora is on the hunt for two new country managers to support its expansion plans.

The European peer-to-peer lending platform is currently recruiting for a country manager for The Netherlands and Denmark, and another for Slovakia and Slovenia.

“Bondora is taking over the world (in a good way, of course!),” the firm said in a blog post on its website.

“We want to help more people be able to build better financial futures. So, we need exceptional analytical thinkers with the ability to help set up Bondora in new countries.

“If you have previously managed an expansion into new markets, know how to navigate local laws, set up processes according to compliance requirements, and experience in the consumer lending industry, then we want you!”

The country managers will help set up Bondora’s online services in those regions, put together operational targets and a six-month plan, and organise initial integrations with partners such as credit bureaus and collection companies.

The country managers will  also create a marketing plan and initial risk and pricing policies for the products.

Bondora said the perfect candidate would have experience in consumer lending, fintech or similar industries in the relevant regions and equivalent language skills as well as fluency in English.

The roles are open to remote or office workers, with the opportunity to travel and potentially to live in Estonia for up to one year.

Bondora was established in 2008 and has attracted 204,955 investors to date, who have funded €642m-worth of loans and earned €79m.

The platform, which is active in Estonia, Finland and Spain, said in May that it is planning to expand into five new EU countries after achieving its fifth consecutive year of profitability.

It is also planning to launch more products, having already launched a Go & Grow app and Go & Grow Unlimited this year.
