Commercial Strategy Manager

Job description

What we do at Codat 

Codat is a fast-growing technology company founded in January 2017, enabling small business financial systems and services to work together seamlessly.   
 
We provide a simple API for connectivity to the market leading accounting, banking and commerce systems globally. We handle the complexity of managing and standardising third-party API connections and schema so that our clients don’t have to. 
 
What would you do at Codat 
 
The Commercial team at Codat acts as partners, advisers and advocates for our clients. They leverage their deep technical, industry and product knowledge to help our clients and partners build worldbeating products on the Codat platform. 
 
They ensure that Codat is the integration partner of choice for clients across the financial services landscape globally. This requires developing in-depth knowledge of financial institutions and the future of financial technology. 
 
This role will be responsible for driving new commercial opportunities and understanding new Codat use cases in depth. You will then need to communicate these effectively both internally and to potential clients, working closely alongside the commercial team. You will need to be a complete expert on the client’s product, the market they operate in, the current technology and trends and how they can improve their business. 

 

You will need to be able to handle meetings from product owners in the trenches to senior executives. The topics you will need to proficiently engage on will range from the technical aspects of data sharing, to API-led market trends and regulatory/policy topics to deepen understanding of Codat's integration platform. 
 
No matter what we’re doing, whether we’re speaking to customers, partners or to each other, we try at all times to live by our values: 


Useful - We believe in delivering technology that solves real problems for real businesses. We have a real want to do the stuff that isn't always sexy but makes a difference. 


United - We believe that the people in the best teams push and enable each other to excel. We have each other’s back - when things go wrong, there isn't blame, we work together to fix it. We embrace differences of opinion to end up with an even better outcome - not letting our egos win. 


Unstoppable - We believe that constant drive towards a single, clearly stated goal is the primary method of building great things. We are biased towards action - our decisions are informed and then we act. There is no such thing as a hard problem - it is how we outperform others.
