FP&A Senior Manager Job at DesignTechnologies – London

Clippings is an exciting and ambitious SaaS business that is building technology solutions to bring the interior design industry online. Today, most brands in this trillion-dollar industry don’t use technology to power their sales process. They offer an old-fashioned, time-consuming experience with paper/PDF catalogues, manual quoting and email-based ordering – which results in inefficient processes, unhappy customers and competitive weakness.

We are building a turnkey SaaS solution that enables brands to digitally transform their businesses, and empowers them to take orders from their diverse customer groups (businesses, designers, consumers, resellers), online.
