Who are we looking for?
Someone who has created his or her own startup, achieved "real" not "vanity metric" traction, and exited - voluntarily or involuntarily. Someone who wants to do it all over again, but better ... with a team that has the talent and runway to go all the way. Someone who believes the fact that people with time and talent don't have a transparent, frictionless path to make a great living is a crime. Someone who has done their homework and knows exactly where they plan to add value to realize our vision. Someone who is highly resourceful and effective when things are most uncertain. Someone who has a point of view about where we are going as a society and wants to be on the right side of history when it comes to self determination, data ownership, & privacy. Someone who has the ability to usher a product from inception to release. Let's not get bogged down with the technicalities of planning poker, but project management skills are definitely a bonus! Someone who is modest, but intense. Pragmatic with a sense of urgency. Leads with data yet trusts his/her intuition. Someone who knows that it is now or never.

Role Type
This is a full time position that starts as a 30-day contractor role. If it is a fit on both sides, you'll join full time. We are open to structuring something that works with the right candidate.

What will you be doing?
- We'll give you the rundown on where we are headed; what we know; and what we don't know
- Then we'll rework our go-forward plan - together!

Are there any requirements?
- Bachelor’s degree
- Strong problem solving skills
- Strong oral and written communication skills
- 3+ years of start-up experience
- Mobile marketing background [a plus]
- Payments, SaaS, and fintech knowledge and interest [a plus]
- Prior experience working in a startup environment
- No one (reasonable) you know would describe you as an asshole.
- Everyone you've worked closely with would rank you in their top 5
- You should be able to ace our basic technical interview [no puzzles, no tricks]
- You sleep when we all #win
- You're not into shiny new things and TechCrunch headlines
- You are all about building systems that create real value for real people - over the long term
- The details matter to you [polished design and copy, alignment across brand assets] and you take lots of pride in your work.
- Looking for an "ALL IN" team and workplace culture


Who we are?
1) Engineers and product obsessed - we loathe over-engineering, we cringe anytime a customer reports a bug and we release new versions every week.
2) We love our customers - solving their problems and helping them grow and succeed in a rapidly changing world. Oh yeah we also love their 5 star reviews.
3) We love disrupting the status quo - desktop solutions are so last year and we believe everyone globally in the industries we're going after will be using a mobile app as their primary business tool by 2025.
4) We don't just think of this as a job. In our spare time, this is what we do and who we are. Our obsession with small business, fintech, smart growth, and cool apps is a 24/7 thing.
5) We believe only two things matter as we build out our business: building a great product and delivering awesome customer service.
