Off-cycle/Summer Internship

About us

Here at SAPI, we’re on a mission to build the lending infrastructure for the web, and we’d love for you to join us! We’re a London-based FinTech, empowering payment companies to offer fast and fair business financing to their sellers while earning revenue share. We’re super well-funded and backed by some pretty amazing angels, unicorn founder-turned-investors, and top venture funds from the UK and Europe.

Our 3 founders have 10+ years of experience each in Credit, Tech, and Data, and come from prestigious backgrounds like Goldman Sachs, Iwoca, and Morgan Stanley. They’re seriously invested in YOU! With attractive compensation and a culture that values your work and opinions, we’re inviting you to join us in building a leading credit API for a £7 trillion dollar market – all while having a blast on this challenging and rewarding journey.

Why choose this internship?

  • No experience? No problem! We’re looking for go-getters with a can-do attitude, hunger, and street-smarts.
  • A fully tailored internship: It’s all about YOU – your strengths, weaknesses, interests, and schedule!
  • Work from anywhere, anytime! Remote is cool with us, and you can set your own hours as long as tasks are completed.
  • Flexible starting date: Got a summer job or study commitment? Just let us know, and we’ll arrange something that works for everyone.
  • A position designed just for you: This flexible internship is a chance to discover what suits you best, and we’ll hire you for what you truly excel at!


  • Expect a part-time workload of around 10-15 hours per week, making it easy to fit around your other commitments. Want a full-time internship instead? We can arrange that, depending on your situation.
  • Work directly with our founders and collaborate with other interns and SAPI staff, as well as engage with external stakeholders.
  • Our summer internship is paid and remote, but we do have London offices if you prefer some in-person days. Work it around your study schedule, boost your CV, and gain valuable skills while juggling other life commitments.
  • If we find the perfect fit between you and SAPI, we’ll consider offering you a full-time role after the internship. Alternatively, we’ll happily provide references and intros if you’re better suited for a different company.

    Our Interview Process

    This process comprises three stages:

    1. Once your CV screening is successful, our internal talent team will schedule an introductory video-call. During this exploratory conversation, we aim to discover your motivations for applying to SAPI and provide an opportunity for you to get acquainted with us.
    2. You will be invited to a 30-minute chat with our founder. This will be a conversation about culture, team fit, and more hard-skill questions will be covered.
    3. Based on the performance in Stages 1 & 2, you will be invited to take part in a 2-week paid trial project, where we’ll design a small project for you to work on in the scope of 10-12 hours/week. Those who pass the trial project will be accepted into our internship.
