Job description

Discovered are exclusively partnered with a large fund to find a Co-Founder/CEO for a new and ground-breaking FinTech.

The FinTech is in stealth mode and we can't give it away just yet. However, once you have been qualified, the fund can share all the details of what they have built so far!

It is an incredibly ambitious FinTech startup and it has the potential to become the next big thing in this space in the UAE and beyond.

Note: seed funding has already been secured!


- A true entrepreneur at heart that will be willing to take on the building of a new FinTech from the ground up - Salary should NOT be your main driver!
- You understand the stresses and risks associated with founding a startup, not just the successes.
- You have played a key role/experienced amazing success at a FinTech e.g. 200+ headcount growth OR $10m+ funding round.
- You have founded a startup OR you have held C-Suite/Country Head positions in a FinTech that experienced huge success during your time there.
- You are based in the UAE or you are willing to relocate.
- Being an "evangelist" for the company at conferences, events, etc. and establishing strategic partnerships.

The Role

As Co-Founder, you are part of the founding team and in the role of the CEO, you are fully responsible for the strategy and growth of the company – building a scalable highly competent team, ensuring continued business growth, cultivating partnerships and close investor relations.

It must be stressed that this is an entrepreneurial opportunity and if you have a big focus on a high salary, this won't be a good match for either party.
