Who we are
We’re on a mission to make investing better for everyone in Europe. More specifically, we’re making it light years better (sorry… we had to!). We’re combining multi-currency accounts with unlimited access to global markets so that everyone in Europe can invest freely without sneaky hidden fees or unnecessary barriers.
Over the last year, we’ve grown from just an idea to a regulated business in both the UK and EU, raising $35M and hiring a team of 25 people from some of the best fintechs around along the way. We launched the app in the UK market in Q3 2021, and are gearing up to launch the product across Europe in the coming months.
We’ve got a stellar group of investors behind us, including Lightspeed Venture Partners, Richard Branson, Mosaic Ventures, Taavet Hinrikus, Jaan Tallinn, Sten Tamkivi, Eileen Burbidge as well as a host of angel investors. In 2022, we raised a $25M Series A round and have been covered in CNBC, TechCrunch, Business Insider and City AM.
Who you are
👉 Startup mentality: you’re a team player but can just as well work autonomously and lead your own projects when needed. We’re a small team so there’s lots of space to grow.
👉 Great communicator: you can communicate with both technical & non-technical stakeholders within the business. We move at a fast pace, so short is sweet.
👉 Open-minded: you’re always ready to explore new approaches, and welcome ideas from other members of the team. We try something, we learn from it and we go again.
👉 User-centric: you love trying to understand user experience, and always put the customer first. Everything we do here is to make people in Europe better investors.
👉 Growth mentality: you’re passionate about what you do and eager to learn and grow with us. We’re still in the very early days, so the Lightyear world can be your oyster.
