About the role

Company Overview:

JustPaid is at the forefront of fintech innovation, harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence to revolutionize accounting and financial control workflows. In regions where the scarcity of talented accountants is palpable, many businesses are still constrained by dated tools like Excel and PDFs. This not only overburdens the finance professionals but also leaves company founders in the dark about their expenses. They struggle to gain insights, leading to missed opportunities for smart decision-making.

With JustPaid, we aim to illuminate this financial black box. Beyond our AI-driven automation for data extraction and validation leveraging the latest in Large Language Models (LLM), we offer advanced reporting and financial analytics tools. With JustPaid, expenses and revenues are no longer buried in spreadsheets but are readily accessible at the founders' fingertips, enabling them to understand, strategize, and optimize with unparalleled clarity.
