Job's description

Our Story

Previse has pioneered algorithm-driven invoice payment decisions and working capital provisioning. For invoice payments, we use machine learning to predict the likelihood that a multinational will ultimately pay a supplier's invoice, which enables instant payment. For working capital, we use our ability to predict future revenue flows to offer SME borrowers working capital at attractive conditions.

Previse reduces transaction costs for buyers, improves working capital for suppliers, and creates an attractive new asset class for funders. This is "Trade Finance 2.0", driven by data, and driving growth for companies large and small.

We utilise the latest tech in machine learning and have access to advanced datasets that allow us to train our algorithms.
