This is an open opportunity as we plan for our 2021 growth.
Seedrs is the leading equity crowdfunding platform and the most active funder of private companies in the UK, with almost £1B invested into campaigns and more than 1100 deals funded. We allow all types of investors to invest as little or as much as they like in businesses they believe in and share in their success. And we allow ambitious businesses in all sectors to raise capital and build community through an efficient, online process.
Seedrs HQ is in London, with offices in Lisbon and Berlin. We are backed by top-tier institutional investors and VCs, as well as over 4,000 of our own users.
We have created a working environment that allows you to be yourself at work and be treated fairly, on the basis of your merits, abilities and potential. We recognise the benefits of having a diverse workforce and take steps to ensure that we endeavour to recruit from a wide pool of suitably qualified candidates.

What you’ll be doing:
As a Business Development Associate at Seedrs, you will play a fundamental role in driving our UK growth, and impact how hundreds of exciting and groundbreaking companies access funds to realise their ambitions.
You will have the opportunity to speak to leading founders and entrepreneurs from across the UK and educate them about crowdfunding and the fund raising process on Seedrs. You will be given the freedom to drive change with us in the UK ecosystem from day one.
The varied nature of this role means there is no set profile for the ‘perfect’ Associate, however, you will ideally have some working knowledge of the UK startup ecosystem. Perhaps you have worked in VC, at a top accelerator, in a sales role for an early stage company, or at a co-working space for entrepreneurs - or even founded your own company prior to joining us. The job requires a wide set of skills, including top-notch interpersonal skills, a commercial mindset, understanding of a sales process, and a genuine empathy for entrepreneurs and the challenges they go through. We look for self-starters; you need to act as an entrepreneur yourself, and are expected to challenge the way you work, adapting accordingly to the needs of your clients and the business.
You must be legally authorised to work in the UK.
