Job Description:

In order to port over the next billion people into a secure and open financial system, you're going to need a network of applications that connect to the fiat world--- Wyre's APIs make that happen.

Our mission is to empower fintech projects to execute on their vision by offering them secure access to the largest financial network in the world (the Wyre Network).

To accomplish this mission, we've built a simple set of tools that allows fintech projects to materialize their visions. (1) Our instant Fiat-to-Crypto Checkout gateway is now being used by hundreds of applications (ie. MetaMask, Opera, BRD) to offer the best way to convert card payments into crypto, and (2) our flexible APIs (Transfers API, Custody API, Users API), allow project to build e-wallets, merchant processing services, and money transfer platforms from the ground up.

We focus on compliance, licensing, regulatory, liquidity and payment processing aspects so our partners can do what they do best, creating amazing tools on the blockchain.

We are looking for a Manager of Data Sciences and Technology to lead a technical team and help us gain useful insight out of raw data. Your responsibilities include managing the data science team, planning projects and building analytics models. You should have a strong problem-solving ability and a knack for statistical analysis. If you're also able to align our data products with our business goals, we'd like to meet you. You will also lead the team to build our business intelligence platform, used by internal departments, external dashboards, and as part of our app. Your ultimate goal will be to help improve our products and business decisions by making the most out of our data.

Ready to be part of a small, specialized team where you can have direct influence on product and decision-making processes? If you're process-focused, have a hacker mentality, and consider yourself curious and a lifelong learner, we want to meet you. We're built on Java, RxJava, MySQL, AWS, ExpressJS, React, Node, Kafka.

We're excited to have you join us on this adventure.
