Are you curious, excited by experimentation and always looking for a better way of doing things?  

Do you want to keep learning and developing whilst getting hands-on, payment-building experience?

Do you want to have the opportunity to drive change in a fast-paced dynamic environment ?

 

We are looking to hire high-energy, and value-adding talent to join Modulr, the fastest growing payments business in the UK and Europe. You will be part of the FP&A and Revenue operations structure reporting directly to our Finance business partner. The ideal candidate would be someone who is commercially focused and embraces a can do attitude to roll up their sleeves and drive change in a fast-paced dynamic environment.

About Us

At Modulr our mission is to move money efficiently to power business productivity. We are building a new digital payments service to make money flow more efficiently through businesses and the economy. This is a new type of payments account that is built for businesses that need faster, easier and more reliable ways to move money.

Our flexible platform and innovate approach allows our customers to utilise our payments account instead of a traditional bank account. Our accounts come with a sort code and account number, access to payment systems (eg Faster Payments and Visa) and everything our customers need from a payments account. They can instantly open as many accounts as they need, automate how they make and receive payments as well as the reconciliation processes these create. All in real time, 24/7 through their own systems utilising our API that integrates into any platform.

Our founding team has a wealth of experience in the payments industry and growing successful businesses. Modulr is backed by payments giants PayPal Ventures and FIS Ventures, as well as startup and scale up specialists Blenheim Chalcot, General Atlantic and Highland Europe which enables us to leverage their resources and expertise to drive our growth initiatives. These partnerships provide us with the necessary provisions to propel our business to new heights.
