Senior DevOps/SRE

About The Company

This Sunnyvale AR/VR company believes the following: Our financial system is fundamentally unfair for people who live paycheck to paycheck.  People shouldn’t have to wait weeks to get the pay they’ve already earned. This wait forces them to spend more than $100 billion a year on short-term credit products, late fees and overdraft fees.

We help people overcome this unfairness by giving them real-time access to their money as soon as they have worked -- without fees or interest.

Our team is bound together by a desire to level the financial playing field.  Our investors, Andreessen Horowitz, DST Global, Ribbit Capital, Felicis Ventures, Matrix Partners and March Capital believe we will change the world.
