Software Engineer (Senior, Staff, Principal)

🔭 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

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
ATM fees

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.

This Role:

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.
