Mission

Wagestream is on a mission to revolutionize how employees are paid… globally. We provide an income streaming solution for employers to give their employees instant access to their earnings, and avoid using high-cost short-term credit. We were founded for a social purpose to reduce the poverty premium - we believe the monthly pay cycle is fundamentally broken and unfair to employees, and that we can fix it. We already help 250,000 employees access their income when they need it, across some of the largest organizations in the UK including the NHS, Bupa, Casual Dining Group, Stonegate Pubs and Rentokil.

The opportunity is truly global and having raised $50m+ in funding from VCs including Balderton, Northzone and QED, we are expanding across Europe through 2020. The Nordics is one of our target markets, and we want you to be the 1st Wagestreamer on the ground. We have done the preparatory work for launch across Regulatory, Banking & Payments, Product, Marketing, Customer Support etc. and have our first customers and partners.

You will have primary responsibility to build the Nordic market for Wagestream - your mission is to oversee the market launch, and maximize our reach in the Nordics both through growing the existing base, and closing new customers & partnerships.
