The Juni team is growing

February 23, 2021


As we’re now one month away from our official beta-launch the whole team at Juni are laser-focused on building out the best banking experience for anyone working in e-commerce or performance marketing.

Over the past months our team has grown exponentially, and I am super happy to announce we’re building a true ‘a-team’ that can deliver on all fronts.

To say that we now have a couple super-stars on the team would not be an exaggeration, with both key additions to our board and our team.

In our board I am delighted to welcome Niklas Thornestad and Johan Bendz.

Johan was part of the founding team at iZettle which is now part of PayPal. With his extensive experience in building out global payment systems I could not be more confident about Junis path forward in becoming the number one banking solution for e-commerce companies.

Niklas has significant experience from various legal roles and has held management positions in scale-ups, large international corporations and law firms in Sweden, UK, the Netherlands and the US. Most recently, Niklas headed up Klarna’s global compliance organisation, where he was responsible for building a function that could scale with Klarna’s growth. Niklas will be a vital part in building out a ‘best-in-class’ compliance department at Juni.

“Ever since my first interaction with Juni, I have been impressed by their professionalism, speed and knowledge of the market they are serving. The solutions Juni bring to the market will solve real pain points for cross-border e-commerce and marketing businesses.” Niklas Thornestad

Our team has also grown at an incredible pace and I am truly proud of each addition to the Juni family. I won’t be able to go through each and every one of our new hires since I would end up writing a short novel, but I will mention two key additions to our team,

Robert Lange recently joined the Juni team as design director, with a deep experience as lead designer at Designit, a global design firm, he has helped build several projects from the ground up - and has worked on projects for Samsung, Bosch and ServiceNow among others.

Jonathan Sanders is another key addition to the Juni executive bransch and a vital part of the Juni team as our new COO. Jonathan was the head of payments at Pleo - having successfully launched partnerships with Mastercard and JP Morgan to deliver a best-in class payment offering he will be an integral part in the continued success of Juni moving forward.

Juni is truly becoming a team of ‘all-stars’ fully equipped to build out the future of banking for e-commerce and online marketing, if you want to keep track of the Juni team and see all of our new additions you can do so here.

Simply put we’re getting ready for our big launch which is set for 28th of February - with a 1% cashback from day one at launch, unlimited daily spends, unlimited virtual cards and a complete overview of your companies financials Juni aims to disrupt banking for e-commerce and performance marketing companies from day 1!

We will have more information about the launch and our suite of services soon,

Until then I wish you all a great day.

Best regards,
Samir El-Sabini
CEO Juni
