Business Development Manager - Spain (f/m) for Savedo

Berlin, Germany

Deposit Solutions, recently coined the fastest growing Fintech globally, provides the market changing Open-Banking platform for the financial industry. Through our innovation, banks can offer their end-customers a broad product line-up from different banks, thereby increasing their clients’ choice and market transparency. With our first application, focusing on savings deposits, banks looking for funding can gather deposits from new markets and client groups without having to set up and operate their own retail infrastructure, and depositors can access best-in-class deposit offers through their home bank account. Currently our platform is connecting banks from 25 countries and in turn 20m depositors, we managed to mediate EUR 3 billion in less than 2 years. 

If you are an outstanding professional and are keen to help us transform the deposit market to the benefit of people, banks and society at large – by giving savers higher returns on their savings, by giving banks access to better funding and by in turn enabling them to provide more money for job-creation – then join us.
