About Ticketer

Since being founded in 2009, we has grown to become the UK market leader at the forefront of smart electronic ticketing technology across the bus sector. Our software enables passengers to use the latest payments technologies, whilst providing bus operators with real-time performance insights to improve efficiency, service levels and profitability.

Widely renowned as the most innovative provider in the industry, our clients include some of the largest national operators, including First Bus, Arriva, and Go-Ahead, and some 70% of the UK’s regional operators. We have achieved outstanding revenue growth of over 50% year-on-year for the three years leading up to Tenzing’s investment in 2018.

Since 2018, we have expanded into Europe with the acquisition of the Nordic’s leading bus ticketing company (FARA) and are continuing to support the bus industry as it deals with the challenges to its operations caused by social distancing and lockdowns.

About the Role

The role’s primary focus is on forecasting and improving commercial outcomes within the business. You will do this through surfacing information, developing analysis, and ensuring this can be used by the senior management team to improve and grow the business – much like an FP&A role.

  • Analytical with strong attention to detail.
  • An excel whiz who enjoys building well thought out spreadsheets.
