On behalf of Nets, we are looking for an experienced and ambitious Corporate Marketing and Activation Manager with the responsibility of driving corporate marketing activities to reach and fulfil their goals within the roaring FinTech and Payment industry.
Nets is a leading provider of digital payment services in the Nordics. The company was founded in 2010 through a merger of the Danish company PBS and the Norwegian company Nordito (formerly BBS and Teller). The company’s origin, however, dates back to 1968, and payments have been at the core of their business ever since. Whilst their offerings to merchants, corporates, financial institutions, consumers and wider society may have evolved over time, digital payments of all types remain at the heart of everything they do. Nets forms the backbone of the Nordic payments ecosystem with solutions touching people’s everyday lives, often deeply embedded in society. Nets customers are from all corners of society and include banks, corporations, merchants of all sizes and public-sector organisations.
