Our mission is to increase the success rate of small businesses. Traditional banking has been a growth limiter rather than a growth enabler for business owners, and we’re changing that. Relay is the all-in-one, collaborative money management platform. We’re building for employer SMBs and their finance function, internal and external, and are focused on delivering a human-centric customer experience. Ultimately, we help SMBs be ‘on the money'.
We’re looking for a focused Senior Full Stack Engineer, who loves delivering robust code and shipping frequently. You'll make high-impact decisions daily and have a dedicated interest to help shape the future of Relay and build a product our customers love. This is an opportunity to work across our full product suite and drive new and existing product features from start to finish. If you're looking for an opportunity to build a best-in-class banking product that is changing the way SMBs succeed, apply now!
