Senior Data Scientist (Risk)

Salary Competitive

About Moneyflow Moneyflow is a fintech company, founded in 2018, and we are expanding rapidly not only locally but internationally. From the heart of Copenhagen, Moneyflow is disrupting the traditional banking industry by providing real-time credit through embedded financing solutions. Our vision is to create the best and easiest way for SMEs to access and provide liquidity for other SMEs. 


In Aug 2022, we secured €250 million in asset-backed debt funding to fuel not only our growth, but the growth of many SME’s in the Nordics and eventually broader Europe. The capital from Aion Bank is the largest amount that has been made available in Scandinavia at one time for a company of our nature.


Business is constantly challenged in managing their cash flows – a lot of time is spent on administration and waiting for invoices to be paid. Moneyflow is here to change that. Through smart and integrated embedded financial tools, Moneyflow helps businesses get paid the moment when they send their invoice.

Moneyflow is growing with new products, new customers, new partners and new markets. We are an experienced team with big ambitions, we have serious backing, solid partnerships, a clear plan, and now we need you.

Your assignments will include, but are not limited to:

  • Work with a cross-functional team to solve the highly complex and business critical problems.

  • Evaluate risk for various products and have a deep understanding of credit risk.

  • Provide business insights to ensure that the decision models can be leveraged in the credit policy for both internal and external usage.

  • Support credit performance improvements by connecting underlying drivers of credit trends with historical behaviour, and verifying hypotheses by utilising various data sources and developing methods to mitigate credit loss.

  • Programmatically analyse transactions and user behaviour data to determine abnormal behaviour, probability of certain events, 

  • Continuously improve and optimise our credit decision engine (underwriting models) and credit scoring for SMEs.

  • Implementing scalable models that are ready for new countries and new product launches (factoring services, revenue funding).

  • Collaborating with product and backend engineers to improve our data infrastructure and product features.
