Role: Front-end Developer (React Native) (Potential to move to Lead Frontend Engineer in future)
Location: Cardiff (With some potential for remote working)
Salary: Up to £40k + equity (+ significant salary increase in the near future)
Acorn Recruitment is excited to be in sole partnership with a disruptive innovator developing a payments application that could significantly change the payments industry. The partner is taking advantage of new European Central Bank legislation (due in early 2020) that will push a move to an open banking ecosystem changing the way that payments are received - effectively challenging the current duopoly held by Visa and Mastercard.
The company will exploit this market to create new opportunities for consumers to access a range of deals and discounts via their all-encompassing digital wallet. The technology will also save merchants and large corporates a huge amount of money when using their payments infrastructure - providing huge benefits on both sides of a transaction.
While this role is based with a start-up, the company Board comprises industry heavyweights, including former Directors of global investment banks. The backing of the Board coupled with the size of the opportunity means that the company has already completed their initial round of investment, with further investment due early next year.
The technology opportunity is driven by legislative change meaning the company is ahead of the curve with very little in the way of competition, meaning you will be part of something special that could see your equity grow exponentially within a few short years!
