ABOUT US
We are a rapidly growing AI-driven fintech startup founded in Ireland in 2020. We are a blend of accountants, data specialists, engineers, and designers, all from diverse backgrounds who are disrupting the traditional accounting practice with a modern, forward-thinking, and technology-enabled alternative.
 To date, we have received over €2.2m in venture capital funding investment to build out our platform and drive customer growth across Ireland and the UK, and are currently doubling the size of our company each quarter. We provide bookkeeping, accounting, and finance services to SMEs in Ireland and the UK through a combination of our unique AI and cloud technology, supported by our team of professionals. We are looking for people who are passionate about making accounting more than an expensive compliance exercise for small businesses and who see that they are currently poorly served by the accounting industry and technology platforms.
