Transaction Monitoring Analyst

full-time Tide London

Hello, we’re Tide.

Tide is the emerging leader in the SME challenger banking space in the UK, that’s why we’ve been ranked as a Top 100 FinTech by KPMG! We believe SMEs have been vastly underserviced and overlooked by traditional banks. Something as simple as opening an account can take weeks, mountains of paperwork and too much time. Thats why we’re passionate about our mission is to help SMEs - our members - save time (and money).

The Tide platform not only offers business bank accounts and related banking services, but also a comprehensive set of highly usable administrative solutions, such as full integration with accounting systems. Tide believes that truly serving SMEs well requires a relentless focus on their needs. That is why Tide is SME only.

Based in central London and Sofia, Tide is backed by some of Europe’s most notable founders and investors, including Alex Chesterman (Zoopla) as well as top VCs in London and Stockholm (Anthemis, Augmentum, Creandum, LocalGlobe and Passion Capital).

We’re offering the right person, the opportunity to join our dynamic team to help drive our rapid growth. We’re a rocket ship thats going places – this looks a little like world domination!
