Wagestream is on a mission to bring better financial wellbeing to frontline workers.
We partner with some of the world’s most famous employers, like Pizza Express, Hilton and the UK’s National Health Service, to give their teams access to fairer financial services - all built around flexible pay. Almost a million people can now choose how often they’re paid, track their shifts and earnings, start saving, use budgeting tools, get free financial coaching, and access fairer financial products. All in one financial wellbeing super-app.
Wagestream is unique: VC-backed and growing at scale-up pace, but with a social conscience. The UK’s leading financial charities and impact funds were our founding investors, and we operate on a social charter - which means every product we build has to improve financial health and reduce the $5.6bn ‘premium’ lower-income earners pay for financial services each year.
You’d be joining a team of 150 talented, ambitious people, growing in Europe, Australia and the USA, building a category-leading fintech product and all united by that same mission.
We are building a next generation financial services platform which connects employer payroll services to world wide banking services. We ingest millions of records from various external sources and our banking platform moves tens of millions of $, €, and £ per month.
We’re onboarding some of the biggest brands in the world, with a high volume of integrations happening at any one time, some representing over a million employees. As the Integrations Manager, you’ll play a key role in ensuring that success.
You will have serious influence across the business, having real impact on the product; having your say on changes and your work prioritised to meet business needs. Expect total access to the full picture, working cross functional, having input across multiple squads but always supported by an experienced leadership team.
What you will be doing:
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 running the technical presales with Product Managers, having charge of the full cycle, seeing a visible impact on the product offering.
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.
