Product Manager / Business Analyst Financial Data
At Silverfin we’re trying to apply the promise of software to the age-old industry of accounting. With our SaaS we’re automating a large chunk of the busy-work that accountants are currently handling manually, and are building new tools so they can provide better services to their customers. We aim to optimize their workflow in such a way that accountants can spend more time on the much more impactful and rewarding work of advising their customers, the business owners.
The good news is we’re succeeding in doing exactly that. Every day more than 15,000 financial service professionals use Silverfin to help and advise more than 200,000 businesses. Our customers adore us! The even better news is there’s still plenty left to work on, and that’s where we hope you come in.
At its heart, Silverfin is a technology platform which enables accountants around the world to optimise their processes for efficiency, combining and standardising data from a multitude of sources to allow workflow automation.
Data coming in from external sources like bookkeeping systems is enhanced by data captured via workflow templates built by our users within Silverfin and processed for example to create financial statements for businesses that can be filed with government authorities through our software.
Having started as a small business with a big idea just a few years ago, Silverfin is rapidly becoming the thought-leader and de facto international standard for connected accounting. Because of that, we have an increasingly big responsibility towards our customers, who being financial services professionals, depend on accuracy of information.
For us, this means staying on top of all data flowing in and out of Silverfin to ensure that our customers can always rely on being able to work with the most up-to-date information.
Each integration partner we work with makes data available to us in a slightly different format, which is only one of the many challenges we tackle everyday behind the scenes to help our customers streamline their workflows.
