Purpose

We’re building the world’s first global real-time payment network. Move money at lightning speed, wherever you are. ⚡️

About us

🚀 We’re accelerating a global real-time revolution by creating a single gateway to a world of account-to-account payments. The result is an unrivalled open payments power grid, where money flows and conversion are expertly optimised.

This network of networks, powered by open banking, is transforming how money moves on a global scale. Welcome to next-gen e-commerce. 🚀

Flexible working approach

👬 At Volt, team is everything. We are building an exceptionally capable team because without our people, our mission will fail. Building a business lightning fast means we don’t have time to waste. We believe that giving our team flexibility allows them to bring their best to the business. 👫

Across all of our regional operations, we are committed to offering hybrid working. In London for example, our HQ, we have office space in the centre of Marylebone and you can see most of us here on Tuesdays and Thursdays. For the rest of the week we manage our own time at home and are trusted to deliver on projects. We have a great time when we're all together as well. 💃🏽

Another example is our Polish operation where we have teams in both Krakow and Warsaw. Teams work flexibly from home all week however on Thursdays there is a meet up in both cities where we spend the time to workshop and create with one another.

We are 100% committed to our mission and our people are crucial to us achieving it - that's why offering flexibility for us was a no-brainer! 🧠

Approach to diversity & inclusion

🗺 We care about diversity - we recognise that we will not achieve our mission without a diverse team of people working for us.

However, we're not perfect and no one is. We have lots of diversity in our team across gender, neurodiversity, cultures, languages, nationalities. However, we are very keen to expand that list and we really do welcome applicants from any background.

What do we think of Volt ⚡️?

Throughout the Flexification process, it was clear that collaboration and team dynamic is key to their culture. Even with work from home Volt want their teams to be close and engaged with each other to drive results through teamwork. Volt has grown very quickly yet has maintained its core culture and flexibility to really engage employees in its mission.

If you're looking for an exciting business that is growing lightning fast Volt may be the company for you.

Hi, I'm Katie, Chief People Officer @Volt 👋

When we launched in 2019, we recognised how open banking had the power to transform how businesses, whatever they happen to be, receive payments from their customers.

Now, on the back of a record breaking $23.5 million series A funding round, we’re building an all-star team to achieve our goal of ‘real time payments, everywhere’

Our team are hard working, ambitious and energised. We are looking to bring on board those with a similar mindset and who our company values align to. For us:
