About PDAX

Many Filipinos do not have easy or affordable access to basic financial services like bank accounts, remittance services, and investment products.

Blockchain technology is solving many of these problems through cryptocurrencies and digital assets. By providing an exchange platform for cryptocurrencies and digital assets, PDAX aims to make financial products and services cheaper and more accessible to the ordinary Filipino.

PDAX operates an open marketplace for digital assets, i.e. PDAX and retail distribution apps for securities, e.g. Bonds PH.

PDAX is a financial institution regulated by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and is a Series A venture backed by global leaders in crypto and blockchain technology and by SEA-focused venture capital firms. In 2020, we have grown our userbase by 12x, monthly revenues by 35x, y-o-y volumes by more than 800x, however, we recognize the road ahead is still long and arduous. We’re excited to innovate PH’s investment space together with like-minded high-caliber individuals.

The Finance Team

The PDAX Finance Team, as cliché as it sounds, are the arteries of PDAX. We manage cash flows, liaise with investors, build budget and project models, find ways to extend runway, and inflect our burn rate curve. Led by the Chief Financial Officer, we work closely with the Chief Executive Officer in order to build an efficient accurate accounting system, establish control frameworks, and control company spending. And of course, being part of a fintech company, the Finance team is at the crux of providing a financial perspective in building the blockchain platform, conceptualizing investment products, and guiding our over-all strategy.

About the Role

As a Finance Associate, you are expected to have quantitative critical thinking and learning agility. What we are looking for is someone who is not only knowledgeable about Finance, but who is prepared to challenge the norms to create disruptive efficiencies. We love learning here, and are prepared to work on new tasks to learn outrageously. It is great to be a thinker, but we need builders here – people who are able to execute fast, build out a process, and create structural procedures within a start-up.

  • Preference for one to three years of relevant accounting or finance work experience with a thorough understanding of GAAP and local statutory accounting principles.

  • Experience with cross-functional teams – 1+1+1=5. Yup, we want to collaborate exponentially!

  • Learner and Contributor – you don’t need to know everything, but you got to love learning and at the same beat be excited to share insights you have learned with us. Let’s learn together!

  • Strong sense of initiative – you always look to solve the issues around you and hate inactivity.
