Scaleup Finance provides start-ups and growing companies with a subscription-based solution to reduce the burden of financial modeling and finance admin for founders.

In the role you will be working closely together with our CFO, Finance Manager, and from time to time our UK MD and CEO

As a legal assistant, you will have the opportunity to gain experience and know-how about what it takes to build a legal team in a scaleup SaaS company, and get the chance to put the theory from your studies into practice by assisting and advising colleagues and customers.

We want to hire people who enjoy helping others and have a positive mindset, so we ensure that everybody gets the support they need to constantly improve their skill set.

Working at
Scaleup Finance ApS

Scaleup Finance is founded by entrepreneurs, and we know the pains of being a scaleup CEO. One of the biggest recurring pains is the general administration surrounding bookkeeping, payroll, auditing, financial modelling and other admin-type tasks. They drain the founders of energy. Yet another pain is that no solution completely fit a scaleup company. The big accountancy firms or smaller bookkeeping companies/persons are not only expensive but also insufficient. Right now, no offer understand scaleup companies nor are they designed for their needs. The category is stuck in old ways of working, and scaleups do not get any added value. We need to move into a new generation of financial steering to help value creation in scaleups. Scaleup Finance is put into the world to challenge this. We are always one innovative step ahead, and we aim to become a crucial form of actionable business intelligence where you can effectively get an overview of everything which relates to controlling your company. All of this based on unique insights of scaleup companies.
