Job type: Full-time
Hiring from: Europe Only
Uncapped is on a really exciting growth trajectory in the coming 12 months or so, with a mission to revolutionise SME lending in the UK and beyond. We empower founders to go further, faster. We need a creative story-teller and digital marketing strategist to craft our B2B content, brand activities and PR output into a compelling and engaging narrative that inspires entrepreneurs, investors and the broader technology community. Our unique position in the start-up ecosystem gives us an opportunity to tell entrepreneur stories that can inform and inspire the convergent worlds of VC funding and technology. This role suits someone both aspirational and independent, someone demonstrably passionate about our product and how it is revolutionizing the way start-ups are funded, someone with the natural capacity for critical and ‘first principles’ thinking. You will have a bias to action and pride yourself on having an impact from day one.
Here at Uncapped, we believe founders shouldn’t have to give away ownership of their company to fund growth. That’s why we provide interest and equity-free investments from £10k to £2 million to founders and companies who are changing the world. We charge a flat fee of 6% on the capital provided and get repaid through a revenue share. There are no pitches, cap tables or coffees required. So founders can apply online, receive an offer and start growing their business! We’re a fully remote company and backed by Europe’s top investors including Seedcamp, Global Founders Capital and Whitestar - early investors in other fintechs such as Transferwise, Revolut, and Funding Circle. We recently raised another $26m of investment and we’re scaling fast!

What will the measures of success be:
- Increase in volume and velocity of website sign-ups (top of funnel)
- An improvement in our acquisition costs - (CPC / PPC)
- Increase in conversion (progression through the funnel)
What you’ll need to have done in the past:
- Acted as either Marketing Manager or similar in a scaling start-up - what you already know about pace, doing more with less and how to make trade-offs is essential on day one
- Agency or partnership management, with a focus on rapid iteration through experimentation and analytics
- Lead or heavily influenced the creation of a multi-channel brand experience
