Job Description

Who we are:

At TrueLayer, we’re building a global open banking platform that’s changing how money moves and so much more. We make payments and refunds instant, account data accessible and verification seamless — all so innovators in every industry can build better financial experiences for their users.

To date, we’ve raised $270 million from world-renowned investors including Stripe, Tiger Global, Addition and Tencent. We’ve got offices in London, Milan and Dublin. And we’re trusted by industry leaders like Revolut, Coinbase and Nutmeg… though we’re not stopping here.

Our vision is a financial system that works for everyone. To make that happen, we’re creating original and innovative products that will remove the friction from finance for good. We’re seriously scaling our infrastructure, we’re entering new areas all the time, we’re cornering a whole new category — and we’d like your support to get us there.

  • Serve as subject matter expert in your market(s) to contribute to setting the integration roadmap and strategy
  • Work with our Product and Sales Integration teams to understand the technical complexity of your proposed deals;
  • Directly contribute to the product roadmap with internal and external stakeholders;

  • 5+ year experience in a commercial (+ for Partnerships) role either selling to globally focused SAAS solutions and PSPs and working at a major tech organisation (either a PSP or a SAAS company)
