QA Lead at Wisetack

QA Lead




Company Overview

At Wisetack, we’re building financially-responsible consumer lending products that help service-based businesses thrive.

Founded in 2018 by a team of experienced fintech veterans whose prior experience includes PayPal, LinkedIn, Lending Club, Affirm, Amazon, and other leading companies, Wisetack is a well-funded early stage startup with strong early customer traction. We’re backed by leading VCs, including Insight Partners, Greylock, and Bain Capital Ventures, (investors in Airbnb, LinkedIn, Instagram, Dropbox, and many more.)

We raised a $45M Series B last year and since then, we’ve invested in the team and the product and signed a slew of new partnerships. This is a fun stage in any company’s lifecycle where we’ve got the core foundation built, a healthy growth rate, and a clear path to success, but you’d still be joining early enough to help shape the future of the company.

Business Insider called us one of the 70 most promising startups changing the world of finance, LendIt selected us as this year’s winner in the Best Emerging Lending Platform category for their Fintech Industry Awards, and we were just named to the inaugural SMBTech 50 list (perhaps you saw us on the billboard in Times Square?) The external recognition is great, but we’re equally — if not more — happy with the recognition from our customers. Our current NPS rating is a sky-high 78. We’re proud that we’re building a product that customers love and we believe that this is the most important foundation of a great company.

Our Engineering team principles

  • Everyone is an engineer. No matter what their title is, everyone contributes to the code. Everyone delivers.
  • Initiative and ownership. We want every team member to lead the work they do. Design the best solutions and implement them. Ask for help from others when you need it.
  • One team. We are low ego and support each other.
  • Learning and growth. We believe growth is a huge motivator. We want everyone on the team to have an opportunity to learn and grow in their career. If you are smart and want to learn, you should be with us even if you don’t have all the skills we need at the moment.
