Job Description

Hello. We’re Goji.

We provide market-leading platform technology to the alternative investment industry.

Access to private markets is increasing but 20th century technology cannot support or scale to meet these market demands and opportunities. Trillions of pounds of new inflows from institutional and individual investors are expected in the coming years, and the industry needs to adapt.

At Goji we are driving the transformation of the industry. From frictionless investor onboarding, to aggregating subscriptions and making any private fund accessible, we are solving the challenges that will unlock growth for all participants in our network. Goji was acquired by Euroclear Group in 2022.

Our shared vision is to enhance Euroclear's infrastructure with digitised private fund capabilities, creating a global network that seamlessly connects participants and catalyses their growth.

Our clients include asset managers who want to access and onboard more private fund investors, fund administrators who want to offer a private fund service that drives growth, and distributors who want low-friction access to private funds of their choice.

We are headquartered in the UK and FCA-regulated.
