How we work
We love working async and this means you get to do your own schedule. We empower ownership and proactivity and when in doubt default to action instead of waiting.
This is an exciting time to join Remote and make a personal difference in the global employment space as a Senior Payments Manager, joining our Treasury team.
The Treasury team at Remote has the unique responsibility of not only owning core cash management services, but also owning the external core payments processing and experience. In order to build and scale out the payments group, we are looking for a Senior Payments Manager to help achieve the vision to deliver the best payments product offering on the market.
The Treasury team enables Remote to move money. From developing infrastructure to working with external partners, we find the best ways to move money across different networks and countries in a way that is cost-effective, available, scalable, secure, and forward-looking. As a Senior Payments Manager on the Treasury team, you will dive into the specifications and functionality of the global payments networks and pairing with essential external partners and suppliers, and Remote’s Product and Engineering teams, to convert best practices into the code for Remote’s money movement systems. You will help launch new functionality and markets, adapting our money movement systems to changing industry requirements, and monitoring our systems for accuracy and efficiency.
We’re looking for a hardworking and detail-oriented team member to join our Treasury team. In 2021 we will provide multi-channel approaches, handle the payment processing, and carry the risk in the case of non-payment. Our focus is global expansion. We are looking for colleagues who take responsibility, grow with new challenges and never stop improving themselves.
