Our Story

Previse has pioneered algorithm-driven invoice payment decisions. We use machine learning to predict the likelihood that a multinational will ultimately pay a supplier's invoice, which enables instant payment.

Previse reduces transaction costs for buyers, improves working capital for suppliers, and creates an attractive new asset class for funders. This is "Trade Finance 2.0", driven by data, and driving growth for companies large and small.

We utilise the latest tech in machine learning and have access to advanced datasets that allow us to train our algorithms to replace slow manual processes.

“To ensure that every supplier in the world can be paid instantly, at the fairest rate."

We are looking for a Clojure Technical Lead to join our London or Glasgow based teams (remote applicants also welcome), reporting to our Head of Engineering.
