Founding Engineer

🌍 About LiveFlow

Our mission is to empower people to build their own financial platforms to run their business more efficiently. We help both the small local shop to ensure they always have cash on hand and understand their financials and the hyper-growth startup to expand access to financial information across the entire organization to make better decisions.

LiveFlow is founded by Lasse Kalkar (Former, Head of Growth Nordics at Revolut), and Anita Koimur (Former Global Business Development Lead at Revolut). LiveFlow is backed by Y Combinator and Seedcamp and was recently featured as the top product on Product Hunt.
