Hires: 7 so far
People we worked with: Pascal Ouvrard, Luuc Mannaerts, Patrick de Nonneville
October was founded in 2014 in Paris, under the name Lendix, due to new regulations for lending to the SME market. The mission of this amazing scale-up is to allow entrepreneurs to grow by offering honest and simple loans. Today, October is the go-to lending platform for SME’s in continental Europe. After growing rapidly in France, Spain and Italy, the next market for them to conquer was The Netherlands.
We were asked by the October team to help them establish an employer brand in Amsterdam and open up Dutch operations by setting up an entire team with different specialities. After we got the ball rolling in Amsterdam we even helped October to find a Head of Sales in for the Madrid office.
One. was happy to take on this challenge and jump on board of this interesting fintech scale-up. So far, we’re happy to say October is one of our early adaptors and long-term clients. The hires we did so far were Credit Risk Director, Marketing Manager, Credit Analyst, Inside Sales Executive, Outside Sales Executive, Data Scientist and Head of Sales.
Currently we still have some nice openings. Tim can tell you all about it.
