Why Currencycloud?

We are a remote-first company; whichever location you’re contracted to, we leave it up to you and your manager to agree on how often you come into the office.

Your health and well-being are of paramount importance to us, and so our jampacked employee benefits reflect this!

We offer a competitive salary, an individual learning and development budget, a pension or 401K contribution, mental health days and comprehensive health care that includes annual optical and dental allowances, access to mental health support and a monthly allowance that you can spend on anything health or wellness related!

At the moment we are unable to consider applicants living outside of our entities and we are unable to provide visa sponsorship.
