Bookkeeper

Job description

Company Summary

FTCS is a leading Scandinavian E-money and Prepaid Card Issuer 

We believe that the financial system has been slowing the world down. Its lack of coverage is unfairly limiting participation, and its high friction is limiting innovation and the types of consumer products we could be building.


We at FTCS think the timing for change is perfect. Technology, regulation and consumer trends are coalescing to make instant value transfer solvable. We expect these trends to accelerate, and in the not-so-far future, every person and business will be tied together with ubiquitous communications. Value will flow through the network in massive volumes and at unprecedented speed. We are a collective of engineers, techies, bankers and financiers, excited about the opportunity to remove payment friction for the individuals and businesses that need it the most. We are providing the rails that will enable the next generation of financial products and services, and we are here to change the way value moves.


If you’re someone who enjoys creating innovative ways to reach ambitious goals, who is open to and energized by receiving honest feedback, and who likes asking and being asked “why?” — then we should talk. We don’t just look for people who can do a particular job. We look for people we want to share our time with.
