    Pros

    Funding Options has found real product / market fit and gone through the hard startup phase. It didn’t always get things right but then who does? The business has the opportunity to Amazonise small and medium business services in a massively disruptive way. It now has an entirely new senior leadership team, who are really strong and join from significant industry brands. Funding Options has invested in values and culture to counter past challenges and build people foundations for growth. We now live by values, which are painted in huge letters on the walls of the office including PEOPLE FIRST, SHAKING THINGS UP and NEVER PASSENGERS! This is a cool place, with great values and building a new and strong culture.

    As a Series A startup right now with some heavy hitting talent and strong investors, it is going somewhere. Next Unicorn?

    Cons

    Startup moving to scale-up and putting in place international expansion is always a bumpy ride. If you want smooth and predictable go somewhere else, if you want a rocket ship that will define your career and where you have the opportunity to do the best work of your life, then work here.

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate and keep going, you only get through the atmosphere if your rocket is going fast enough.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Funding Options (London, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    i had 3 interviews with the company themselves plus one interview with the recruiter.
    first interview with recruiter, then a phone convo with one of the people at FO. After that a interview with 2 managers, then a interview with the MD, and then an interview with the CEO. he decided not to hire me in the end. all the others were happy with me.
