Job description

Please note that although all positions at Synctera are remote, candidates must be located and authorized to work in the US or Canada as a precondition of employment. Synctera does not sponsor applicants for work visas.

What We're Doing

At Synctera, we're closing the gap between community banks and FinTechs. Empowering the fastest growing, secure, and scalable FinTech-as-a-Service (FaaS) platform, we tear down integration complexity and build bridges. There are too many FinTechs that need access to a sponsor bank and too few sponsor banks with which to partner, leading to a lack of pricing transparency and less than favorable pricing terms. We're here to help change that by guiding all parties through the onboarding process and beyond.

We are looking for interesting, curious, wickedly smart people who are ready to jump in and run with our fast-growing team. If you want to have fun at work again, collaborate with some of the sharpest people in the industry, understand the Bank/FinTech ecosystem, and love to win, read on!

Who you are

First, you're a full stack data person. You know the perils of CSV formats and you've had to rinse and clean more than your fair share of data. You're fluent in SQL, Data Visualization and Dashboarding. You know that all data is uncertain and there is measurement error in everything. You love to learn. You thrive by helping companies become faster, better-informed and more confident in their data-driven decisions.
