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!

About the role

As the Payment Operations Lead, you are responsible for the operational program that drives all payment products and tooling at Synctera. In this role, you will build and execute our payment operations playbook, coordinate with and scale via an outsourced operations team, and be an operations liaison with our bank partners and fintechs customers to create an exceptional stakeholder experience.  You will advocate for both our external customers and the internal ops teams that support them. 

In addition, you will contribute towards efforts to implement operational efficiencies and reductions in support tickets and will work with our product teams as a primary customer to define improvements to our operational tools. This is a cross functionals role that will require close partnering with internal stakeholders and teams to identify points of friction, deep diving operational problem areas, resolving escalations, and gathering data to support projects and product launches. We are a close-knit organization where everyone is working toward a common goal and where all contributions matter.  

What you’ll do

  • You are an execution and problem solving machine, and will lead the day-to-day operations of Synctera’s current Core (ledger and reconciliation) and Payment (ACH, p2p, cards) products
  • You will design and execute a runbook for all operational payment processes and procedures for both internal and BPO team members; including ongoing updates with the product roadmap
  • Serve as the payment ops point of contact for internal stakeholders across the company
  • Collaborate with our product and engineering teams to build out critical ops tools, automate routine work where possible, and address longer-term or recurring issues
  • Define and build out resource requirements for the Payment Ops function 
  • Support our BPO partner with training material while running train-the-trainer sessions
  • Ongoing liaison with sponsor banks to understand their operational needs and communicating feedback with Synctera product managers
  • Build dashboards and reporting and manage operations towards continuous improvement against key SLAs. 
  • Be an internal and external champion of Synctera’s values and the team's goals

Who you are

  • 5-8+ years of payment operations experience in cards, payments, banking, or other financial services
  • You don’t shy away from complex problems and are enthusiastic about establishing best practices across the Ops organization
  • A self-starter with a strong sense of urgency who thrives in ambiguity 
  • You have a customer-oriented approach, with a pragmatic personality
  • Passionate about and have a deep knowledge of global and emerging payments technologies, product solutions, and operational frameworks (not required, but nice to have)

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
