Mijn Sales Recruiter is de recruitment partner voor SurePay in Utrecht. Op dit moment werven we een Lead voor het sales team voor de banken markt.

The Lead Banks is a brand new function within SurePay for someone who can effectively guide our professional and self organized teams to be successful in connecting new banks to our platform and monitor & optimize our products and service for existing bank customers.

As SurePay continues to grow from a people, product and geographic perspective, we are now splitting the  teams involved into two: corporates and banks.

Your job at SurePay

SurePay is a pioneer in fraud prevention and detection within the payments space.

SurePay makes payment easier, more personal and even more secure. We are a Fintech company, with the most well known product being the IBAN-Name Check, also known internationally as Confirmation of Payee. This product is purchased by almost all banks in the Netherlands, but also by major insurers, lenders, ministries and government agencies.

In total we have already carried out more than 4 Billion checks. Since we went live with IBAN-Name Check, the number of invoice fraud via transfers to Dutch IBANs has decreased by no less than 81%.

SurePay stems from an innovation program of Rabobank, started in July 2016 and has been an independent BV since the beginning of 2020. SurePay is currently in the scale-up phase; we are engaged in the international roll-out of our services. In England we now have a foothold and we check 35% of all payments. Other countries are in the pipeline. We are currently working with 4 scrum teams and a business / sales team on our ambitious growth goals.

SurePay is being backed by three leading investors, specialised at scaling B2B SaaS solutions internationally and FinTech companies.
