Payd

Salary Range $45K-$70K

payd inc. is looking to shrink student debt and grow as a company. That’s why we are hiring a Full Stack Junior Developer. 

But first, what the hell is payd? 

payd is North America’s first and only financial management platform created specifically for students (future, current and past.) As former students, we understand the stress and hardship that comes with giant loans. So, we developed a program that will help them pay off their debts easier than ever before. Think of us as a piggy bank. But a really, really smart one that gets filled every time you buy a coffee. 

Interesting right? Well, we’re looking for some help. More specifically someone who harbours the analytical skills to make sense of big data and the digital marketing skills to create an impact. The catch? There’s none. We are a new startup and you will have the opportunity to grow as we do.

  • A technology lead who can think for the present and the future and is able to communicate thoughts and plans for a variety of audiences

    • You’ll have A LOT of autonomy.
    • As we grow, you’ll be able to grow your team around you.
