🔭 Our mission & vision

Our mission is simple. We want every working person globally to have complete financial freedom by giving them power over their pay.

Power over pay means the ability to instantly access, track, save and manage earned wages. We want to transform people's lives and the organisations they work for.

Job Description

You'll be heading a team of four (with plans to scale the squad out even further) working form implementation, planning through to delivery of crucial integrations of varying sizes, connecting some of the worlds biggest brands to Wagestream.

You will have a seasoned team behind you, responsible for getting the systems live while working closely with Product, having charge of the full cycle, seeing a visible impact on the product offering.

Dependant on your strengths, this could be more people management or hands on. The technology stack is a backend of AWS + Python + Postgres and frontend mix of vue.js, react, typescript, styled components, Cordova, Fastlane, and jQuery but experience with those particular technologies is not required. You should, however, have a proven track-record of delivering integrations.

You should also be comfortable integrating with various 3rd party APIs, both to facilitate financial transactions via financial service providers and integrating with payroll systems to extract employee and payroll data.
