Axo Finans is a digital comparison service for loans, consumer loans and debt consolidation. The company was founded in 2008 and helps thousands of customers every single month to make a better deal. Our service as a loans broker acts as a matchmaker between customer and bank / financial institution. The purpose is for customers to easily find the best loan offer tailored to each individual personal need. We therefore apply for a loan at several banks at the same time - so that the customer can more easily access the market's best loan terms. We are the largest loan broker in Norway and we also have operations in Sweden and Finland. Our goal is to become the Nordic region's best and largest performance marketing focused loan broker. To achieve this, it requires two things - we must be able to offer good customer experience to the customers we source AND we must be best-in-class in marketing and CRO.

To achieve our goals, we now want to strengthen our team with an Affiliate Manager with lots of energy that can help create interest and excitement about our campaigns and products. In addition to collaborating with well-known, external affiliate networks, we also have our own affiliate network, where publishers can sign up and work directly with us. Read more about our affiliate program. This makes it easier for smaller publishers and affiliates with their own website to be able to monetize the traffic they send to us.

As an Affiliate Manager, you are a key player who will help to find, evaluate, develop and motivate new and existing affiliates and publishers who market our products. You will be responsible for finding and onboarding new affiliates, and developing these to do the best possible job for Axo Finans across our markets. Our affiliates act as our digital sales team, in addition to traditional online digital marketing (Google, SoMe and SEO). You will be responsible for the daily follow-up, analysis and reporting of affiliate KPIs, expectation management of volume and quality goals, and further development of the marketing materials they use. The daily work includes meetings and relationship-building activities. You must be a good communicator both orally and in writing, also in English (fluent). Meetings with our affiliates take place either physically or online via for example Teams, Skype or Google Hangouts. Some travel activity in the Nordic countries must be expected.

Customers who consolidate their debt through our service can often save hundreds of dollars per month in reduced interest costs.
