Business Analyst

at Previse in London

(₤30000 per year)

Company Details

Previse has pioneered algorithm-driven invoice financing decisions. We use machine learning to predict the likelihood that a multinational will ultimately pay a supplier's invoice, which enables instant financing of the invoice by our platform.

Previse reduces transaction costs for buyers, improves working capital for suppliers, and creates an attractive new asset class for funders. This is "Trade Finance 2.0", driven by data, and driving growth for companies large and small.

We utilise the latest tech in machine learning and have access to advanced datasets that allow us to train our algorithms to replace slow manual invoice processing flows.

An ingrained culture of slow payments and long payment terms by large corporations to small suppliers is a global problem and our mission statement is “To ensure that every supplier in the world can be paid instantly, at the fairest rate." This is an interesting and meaningful data and technical challenge and we are committed to solving it.
