About Bound

Bound’s mission is to make it effortless for businesses to deal with currency risk. Currency risk is when a business earns revenue in one currency and has costs in another. When a business has currency risk, it can lose money when exchange rates move around. Millions of businesses globally face currency risk every day. 96% of the FTSE 500 have hedging programs in place to mitigate their foreign currency risk, while only 4% of SMEs in the UK do the same.
We’re looking to help the rest of that 96% of SMEs.

We are an enthusiastic team and have raised a +$17mm seed in 2021 from investors behind companies like Wise (formerly TransferWise), Klarna, N26, Stash, Xero.

Bound is transitioning from startup to scaleup, and looking for an exceptional Customer Success leader to help scale to the next level.
