Freetrade preparing to take the plunge Down Under
Freetrade has joined the ever-growing list of UK fintechs setting up shop in Australia.
The investment platform is set to open an office in Brisbane imminently, with Tim Drew, Freetrade’s head of engineering, heading back to his native Australia to set up the new office.
According to Drew’s LinkedIn, he will head up the fintech’s Australian operations and remain the head of engineering in the new office.
In a Tweet, that has since been deleted, Drew wrote: “Excited to announce that I’m setting up a Freetrade office in Brisbane!”
“Unique opportunity to work in an early-stage startup, whilst enjoying the security that comes with the backing of a well-funded London Fintech.”
To help Drew with the opening of the new office Freetrade is looking to hire a senior and a principal software engineer, although both job adverts have since been removed from Freetrade’s website.
As well as opening an office in Brisbane, Freetrade is gearing up to launch in the Netherlands and Sweden, with the fintech on the hunt for a country launcher in both Stockholm and the Netherlands.
