Job Description

The Company:

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.

The Opportunity:

You will play an incredibly important role at Wagestream, providing pre and post sales technical consulting to prospective clients, whilst also ensuring ongoing customer satisfaction.

You will ultimately leave our clients thinking, “wow, Wagestream has the best product and platform” by conducting product demos, managing technical validation activities (including proof-of-concept exercises and pilots), and ultimately help develop the business case for partnering with Wagestream during the sales cycle.

You will partner with sales and work closely with the entire squad, building key customer relationships and meeting key objectives on technical close to ensure a successful launch.

You’ll also be part of the wider sales engineering group helping to improve the impact of Sales Engineering across the business.

You will be building positive relationships with every single customer interaction you have, allowing you to exert the level of technical influence on a customer’s decision as to who to buy from.
Using all of your guile and wiles to educate and convince key technical stakeholders within our clients that Wagestream provides the value to solve their business needs.
