Job Description

Thndr is an investment platform that aims to democratize access to investing for everyday individuals in MENA. Our app represents a seamless way to achieve financial independence and growth, without the need to have prior financial knowledge or access to huge capital.

The company was formed to primarily address irrelevant existing products and low financial literacy, we are aiming to solve this by focusing on education, offering a seamless and intuitive product, removing barriers and building an investment supermarket.

We launched in Egypt in late 2020 and currently allow our users to learn, connect & invest in multiple investment products.

It’s not everyday that you solve a basic societal necessity and at the same time change cultural norms. But the reward will be priceless. In our short journey we’ve validated this, as illustrated by these key figures:
96% of our investors are investing for the 1st time through Thndr
54% come from outside of capital cities and have previously had limited access to financial institutions
86% of new stock market investors in Egypt during 2022 came through Thndr
#1 platform in terms of local trades with 25% of EGX trades happening through Thndr

We’re still in the very early stages of our story, but we know for a fact that we won’t stop until everyone in MENA has equal opportunity to generate and grow their wealth in an ethical manner
