About Metapraxis


Our purpose is to empower good businesses with data-driven insight. Our financial analytics technology, Empower, is used by finance teams to transform manual planning, analysis and reporting processes, with automation and intelligence, improving insight and efficiency. It is highly valued by our blue-chip customer base who regularly publicly advocate our solutions, whether that is at our own Tomorrow's CFO seminars or the Davos World Economic Forum.

We have a talented team of 60 people, with offices in London and New York and we are committed to maintaining a diverse working environment and a strong company culture. We are proud to be an equal opportunities employer and a values driven business.

Over the last five years we have achieved 15% year on year growth in the UK and 30% in the US, to +£6m in revenues, while launching tier one partnerships with EY in the US and Avant Corporation in Japan.  We have just raised £3.5m of investment to accelerate our cloud roadmap, launch our Empower community and expand our sales and marketing activities, with the goal of achieving +£20m in revenues by 2025.


About the Technology team


In a rapidly changing business world, our clients are finding that the fast turnaround of data-driven insight is becoming ever more critical to their success. We design, deliver and embed solutions that drive financial outcomes, provide forward-looking visual analysis and accelerate the delivery of actionable insights.

Our financial analytics platform, Empower, is the foundation for our solutions, and developed and supported by our in-house, London-based technology team. The platform comprises a robust data modelling layer with a calculation and algorithm engine, all exposed through an analytic reporting and app building front-end. In the coming years we will be investing in the built-in finance intelligence of our platform, particularly incorporating advanced analytics and machine learning, along with our migration to be cloud native enabling us to leverage other web services on Azure. The platform is built in Microsoft technologies (i.e. C++, C#, ASP.NET, TypeScript, HTML5).
