Strise is a fast-expanding technology company operating out of Oslo. We have built a revolutionary AML (anti money laundering) Intelligence System to help top-tier banks, fintechs, and other financial institutions fight financial crime.

Strise’s graph and AI technology centers around connecting insights about B2B customers, providing intelligent information to our customers. Vipps, SpareBank 1, and Nordea, are just a few that have had tremendous success using Strise.

Strise makes an impact by making it easier and faster for banks to fulfill their social mission of uncovering financial violations, like money laundering. After successfully becoming trusted by many of the biggest financial institutions in Scandinavia, we are now venturing into the UK, followed by the rest of Europe. We’re well on our way to becoming the global standard in anti-money laundering technology.

One of the most important hires Strise will make this year, the Senior Account Executive in the UK will be crucial in driving Strise’s launch into the UK Market. Working closely with Mike, Head of Sales, you will be responsible for winning new customers across the regulated sectors. The role will be part of a small initial landing commercial team and will need someone who has predominantly expert enterprise scale, hunting abilities to close new business. You will work closely with the accounts you close for the initial 12 months after we launch, so Account Management will also be a core part of the role as we bring customers on board. As with any new product in a market you will also need to have a business development mindset and be ready to work closely with product teams to ensure we solve the biggest challenges for FinCrime in the UK.

The role is for someone who wants to build something in a new market, to be involved in all aspects of commercial strategy and to be in our new UK office from day 1 as we continue to hire more commercial team members. With success, we will continue to grow through Europe so career progression for team leadership roles will be available for high performers across the business.

You will be at the centre of the biggest growth opportunity we see until our Series B round and you have most likely been on this journey before with lots of learnings to bring to Strise.

We’re looking for brilliant solution sales people, comfortable closing above and beyond the 800,000 Euro quota, who have excelled in their previous companies.
