Funding Circle To Expand Bay Area Staff

| By:

Sam Hodges, Funding CircleP2P Lender Funding Circle will expand its Bay Area staff by ten percent.

The company plans to hire 20 people in risk and compliance, product engineering and sales teams. Funding Circle’s marketplace connects borrowers, mostly small business merchants and investors. The company makes money in origination and servicing fees.

The San Francisco-based company was founded in 2010 in the United Kingdom and was launched in the US in 2013. It employs 550 people globally and has so far funded $2 billion to 15,000 businesses.

Earlier this month, Funding Circle announced that it hired former Executive Board Member of the European Central Bank (ECB), Jörg Asmussen, to join its board. This aligns with the company’s streak of boosting manpower. Last year, it hired top executives from Barclays and American Express to head its global risk and analytics team.
