Silverfin is a scale-up SaaS company. 
Silverfin reinvents the way financial advisors work: our cloud-based technology allows +770 accountancy firms and financial advisors to streamline significant parts of their workload and spend more time on value-adding activities. We build a hell of a product and our customers love us. Even our customers’ customers love us. Silverfin solves a very real problem: it automates a large chunk of the repetitive tasks that people working in financial services spend their time on and improves communication with their customers.

We are growing rapidly since our start in 2013.
Originating from Belgium, we have successfully launched activities in BeNeLux and the UK. From these offices, we’re serving a strongly growing client base, including the big 4, in 15 countries with 180+ colleagues. 
In 2021 we won Deloitte Belgium’s Technology Fast 50 award for most sustainable growth - an award given to the company with the best percentage growth over the last four years.

As a fast-growing company, we’ve launched an internship programme to give the young professionals of tomorrow the opportunity to take their first steps into the business world. You’ll be the right hand to Silverfin’s legal counsel and support on a variety of topics and tasks.
