Wagestream's mission is to eradicate the poverty premium, which costs frontline workers an extra £5.8 billion per year in the UK.
The poverty premium breaks down into:
Higher insurance premiums
HIgher energy tariffs
Higher cost of credit (e.g. payday loans)
Non-standard billing methods
Use of pre-payment meters
Insurance for individual items
Wagestream's first product is Earned Wage Access (EWA), which allows employees to access their pay immediately after earning it instead of having to wait until the end of the month, and removes the need for payday loans.
We now want to go after the remainder of the poverty premium, and systematically rebuild financial services from the ground up to be fair for all.
We're looking for Engineers at Senior, Staff and Principal levels to join our cross-functional squads. The key technologies we use are Python, Typescript, PostgreSQL, React and AWS.
Wagestream has a genuine focus on moving quickly, cutting waste, and getting engineers' work into the hands of users in the smallest amount of time possible.
You're excited about our mission.

We provide a combination of a competitive base salary, a 20% discretionary on-target annual bonus (paid quarterly), and equity in one of the UK's best startups.
In addition, we provide 33 days paid leave per year (incl. bank holidays) and all of the other typical benefits (Pension, Cycle to Work scheme etc.).
