Remitly is on a mission to transform the lives of immigrants and their families by providing the most trusted financial service products on the planet. We've helped our customers send nearly $4 billion globally and we're just getting started.
Remitly’s New Initiatives Team was just formed. Through deep customer development, we get to build new growth businesses that expand the products and services Remitly offers to millions of consumers globally.
It’s all the best parts of an early stage startup accelerated by the assets and competitive advantage Remitly has already built and implemented.
What will your experience on the team be like?
We’re looking for someone with a very high emotional intelligence (or EQ) that LOVES shipping code and building products that customers use. You get antsy if you haven’t shipped code and spoken directly with customers in a couple of weeks. You understand the basics of how consumers use products, know what questions to ask customers, and how to get them to share their experiences with you. You make people feel valued and are comfortable working across cultures and socio-economic classes. You are able to hear what’s not being said and identify an unspoken customer and business needs.
You are a scrappy engineer who understands what it takes to build a product that solves a problem. You are comfortable with ambiguous requirements and working full stack. You know how to work with designers and engineers to build products and prioritize. You have the courage and tenacity to say no to anything but critical items. You are good at recruiting other builders.
Success will be measured by the efficiency with which you build and iterate on product ideas. You’ll work closely with a business partner (think co-founder/CEO) to bring ideas to fruition, while hiring and developing an engineering team as the business scales. Part of our charter is to be the team that cannibalizes our own core business with what’s next. It doesn’t get better than that.
