Back Office Specialist- Sven Kaldmaa

FunderFact: Every Friday the music thread on the work chat is dedicated to Sven.

It’s little things like this, that help define the culture of a company. It’s the little jokes and traditions that bring you closer together. The softly spoken Sven Kaldmaa is not just involved, but frequently the focal point of many of these traditions. We feel that this perfectly summarises his work in Funderbeam. Quietly making it a better place, and all of us knowing it.

“I think the second name to Sven would be Trust. He is handling one of the toughest jobs in Funderbeam — client identification and transactions and this requires a certain personality. Always happy, always up to the tasks, always supportive.”

Kaidi Ruusalepp, Founder and CEO

His day to day work is delicate, specific, and critical. It takes a person with a unique combination of skills and interests to not just thrive and improve but also enjoy the investigating of funds and protection of user privacy. There is little doubt about the positive energy the team feels whenever he is there.

“He is always making you smile, feel his support and trust him.”

Monika Tooming, Head of Primary Markets

Outside of work, we know Sven to be a fond lover of cat videos and always keeps a watchful eye on the Political news. This balance between the seriousness and a fun loving nature is what makes him such an integral part of the team.

Joining Funderbeam from Estonia’s LHV Pank in Summer 2019, Sven speaks about how becoming part of a smaller business energised his love of building processes and being able to be ‘hands-on’ in a variety of different roles. “Sometimes I feel like I’m an investigator when checking the missing details in the bank accounts and I need to find the solution. This is really exciting for me.”

Truly a specialist of the Back Office, Sven is our “man behind the curtain” helping our customers and colleagues in client-facing roles. We’re glad to have him and that incredible smile in our office.

“Sven can be a soul of the company with his sharp and striking humor, but he can also be a diligent and determined colleague. Companies that successfully raise funds on the Funderbeam platform do not directly see Sven’s work. But without his work, companies wouldn’t raise, as all new investors and their payments are verified by our Backoffice. Whatever the task is, Sven can handle it.”

Taivo Tender, CTO

“Sometimes I have found myself thinking that more people in the world should be like Sven. He so warm and funny person and his jokes are on the next level. Always giving his helping hand when needed and always up for a little party. If I would have to describe him with one word, it would be sincere.”
