The Company

At MarketFinance, we celebrate ambitious business leaders. They bring strength to our economy and are building the world we all want to live in. MarketFinance is one of the UK's leading Fintechs and we use smart technology, backed by help from great people, to deliver flexible business finance solutions, directly and quickly. Our online platform and proprietary risk models enable us to provide business loans and advance cash against outstanding invoices, in the form of working capital funding, so that businesses can get on with growing - instead of having to worry about cash flow. We believe in the endless possibilities that arise when entrepreneurs have more time to focus on what they love.

Our values matter and as part of the team, they’ll be yours too.

Our company values are:

#MakeItHappen:

We're focused on getting the important stuff done first. We don't get bogged down in long emails and lots of meetings, we find solutions (they're out there!) and get it done!


#AlwaysBeLearning:
The only constant is change: we embrace change and learn. We ask and listen for feedback, and always provide it too.


#1Team1Dream:

We always put the whole company first - when we succeed collectively, we all succeed individually. Everyone has a voice, we listen to each other's opinions.
