Info & background
What is Fishtail?
We are a VC-backed, revenue-generating Trade Finance automation company that is bringing the $10tn Trade Finance space into the 21st century. We are entrepreneurial, fast-moving, highly collaborative - and passionate about leveraging big data, 3rd party supply chain data, and machine learning to de-risk, automate and streamline trading and financing for our customers. Fun fact: We have a sustainability-linked trade finance product where we can tie the interest rate of our loans to the sustainability of the individual shipment (i.e. the greener the shipment, the better your interest rate) -- this is super nifty when you consider that transportation is responsible for ~30% of the world's green house gas emissions and there's really no good way to identify the best option to get from A to B.
What problem are we solving?
When a large retailer gives to a small supplier a $100k order for seltzer, not only does the large retailer not pay after receiving goods for 3-4 months, but the supplier has to cover the cost of making their goods (for months!). As a small business, this is hard to sustain. Fishtail will lend to small businesses when they get an order so they can satisfy demand without tying up huge amounts of working capital. Usually banks will lend to folks only when the product makes it to large companies -- the net effect of Fishtail is that we lend earlier in the chain to smaller businesses.
Who are we?
We are an agile, growing, globally distributed and fully remote organization - if you join us, you will collaborate with a diverse group of individuals including software engineers, trade finance and supply chain specialists, as well as data scientists, UX and product experts. Ability to work independently and be self-motivated is key to how we work.
Fishtail is committed to employing a diverse workforce.

Please contact us to request accommodation.
Where will I work?
We are a fully remote organization, geographically distributed (US, Europe, India, China, Canada). Depending on the role, we may have some preference in terms of timezones - for example, we prefer West Coast friendly timezones when we hire UX researchers and designers
