Business Development Executive 

eCommerce Payment Solutions

Fintech Startup
This is an exciting opportunity to join an early-stage fintech startup whose mission is to financially empower the next generation. Only one in three millennials owns a credit card, and the vast majority of millennials possess a subprime credit score or no score at all. To address these problems and increase consumer purchasing power, this team has built an alternative payment platform that allows online stores to offer interest-free installment plans. When consumers have the option to pay for purchases over time, sales and basket sizes increase for online retailers. Plus, the online partners are paid up front, which eliminates their risk of fraud or non-payment. Since launching this alternative credit platform in 2016, the company has seen explosive growth and as a result, this Business Development Executive job has been added to help accelerate their growth even more. Because the company is so young, you have a great opportunity for your role to grow with the company. If you have experience selling payment solutions to eCommerce retailers you could be right for this exciting new opportunity.
