A little bit about Flanks

Flanks is a Barcelona-based fintech company focused on wealth management services. Its main product is a SaaS solution that helps financial advisors, family offices and other institutions to have a holistic view of their clients’ financial assets while using the latest scraping technology. We’re currently building the benchmark in the OpenWealth industry, and so far we managed to have compatibility with over 300 national and international entities, with a 95% coverage of main financial entities in Europe.

We have already more than 300,000 aggregated portfolios spread across different entities and have positioned our business at break-even in less than a year. In August 2021, Flanks raised €2.3 million in an investment round led by JME Ventures and SeedRocket 4Founders Capital. And a significant €7.5 million in August 2023, led by EarlyBird Venture capital, demonstrating confidence in our vision and capabilities.

We have more than 100 clients around the world, are pioneers in our market in Spain and will be growing faster in Europe in the next few months and years. However, we are going to take a league leap in terms of the volumetry of the system, as our key focus now is to accelerate our market expansion in Europe and Latam. And we would like to count on you to also grow (personally and professionally) with us.

Check out Flanks’ values:

  • People first: To us, the most important thing is for “Flankers” to feel at ease, for them to get involved in a project and be feel part of the team.
  • Keep growing: Our team believes that people growing in lockstep with the company is essential, both personally and professionally.
  • Think twice, act once: We like to think about all the possible consequences before taking any decision that could affect the team or our clients.

If you’re looking to grow professionally in a very fast-growing company with an exciting start-up culture, this is your opportunity!

You will not be left behind. We believe this is a really nice time to join the project. This is a full-time, permanent contract.
