If you work in the startup or finance space, you might have heard the term "family office" being thrown around especially when it comes to raising investment. But have you ever wondered who or what they are? How they really operate? How do they compare themselves to others and improve what they do?
Here at Simple, we are on a mission to make the world of family offices more, well, simple. We debunk the complexity as we dive into large landscape questions such as, what is a family office, how many family offices are there and how to start one. At the same time, we're working to re-imagine the potential of family offices as a force of change in the world, so we look through new lenses such as purpose drive, digital excellence, transparency sustainability, diversity and wellbeing.
We're setting new standards in what we do while dragging this dusty old industry with us to make it both relevant and totally fetch.
As part of this work, we also track service providers to family offices across different categories, compare them and help family offices select them.
In short, we provide the insights, services and real-time data to help re-imagine private wealth.

We're having a lot of tailwinds right now and seeing some great traction around our online family office insights and data platform, but we understand that to continue our success we must build our business development and customer success functions. That's where you come in.
Our customers include both family offices and service providers to family offices. In each segment, we have a slightly different offering and because of this, we might split this into two roles - unless you're a can-do maverick and suit both needs.
