What we do at Codat

Our mission is to make life easier for the lifeblood of economies globally; small and medium-sized businesses. Codat is a universal API for consented business financial data, powering the next generation of products and services for this historically underserved market.  

We have offices in London and New York, and a San Francisco office will be opening soon. We are a privately held company, and have recently closed our Series B funding and are funded by Index Ventures, Tiger Global, American Express, PayPal and a line-up of world-class angel investors.

We live by our values of being united as a single team, building a product that is useful to our clients and their customers alike, with a focus and urgency that makes us unstoppable.

What you will be doing

As we scale we have created three Product groups to ensure a strategic focus across our product range. These groups are Connectivity, Integrations and Data and this role will be to lead overall product vision, strategy and success for the Data Stream.

Our insights product range is brand new and it is the first of its kind at Codat. Our product to date has focused on surfacing data in a standardised way, insights focuses on taking that data and deriving key patterns to make it actionable for our client base and you will be helping to grow this product, carve out its market fit and make it successful part of the Codat product suite. 

You will have immediate responsibility over multiple roadmaps and your team is expected to grow substantially over the next few years.

We’re building the world’s first unified API that conforms to a standardised data model, making it exceptionally easy for our clients to ingest this data. We believe that there is a massive opportunity to use this data to build a set of Insights. You have the chance to shape what our insights product range looks like now and in the future, whilst creating a high performing team to assist you.

Our values

No matter what we’re doing - whether we’re speaking to customers, partners or to each other - we live by our values.

We believe in delivering useful technology that solves real problems for real businesses.  We have a real want to do the stuff that isn't always “cool” but makes a difference.

We believe that the people in the best teams push and enable each other to excel.  We’re united when we have each other’s backs - when something goes wrong, we don’t blame, we work together to fix it.  We embrace differences of opinion to end up with better outcomes.  We don’t let our egos win.

We believe that an unstoppable drive towards a single, clearly stated goal is the best way to build great things.  We are biased towards action - we make informed decisions and then we act.  There is no such thing as an impossible problem, just a great challenge to sink our teeth into.
