About Us:

DailyPay is the leader in the on-demand pay industry with an unrivaled technology platform, an unmatched list of blue-chip clients and an extensive list of industry awards. We are rewriting the invisible rules of finance by creating a new financial system. A financial system that is more equitable and inclusive, and benefits everyone. A financial system that enables workers to access their earned pay when they need it. We believe that money should move faster and smoother between employer and employee, between merchant and shopper, between financial institution and customer.

We are a mission-driven company hyper-focused on designing technology that can build a better financial system and future. It's no wonder that we are growing at an extraordinary pace. Now we are looking for people who are as passionate as we are about reimagining how money moves. If you're willing to define new rules, change systems and lives, come join us at DailyPay.

The Role:

We believe that APIs represent a special epicenter of any SAAS business. By building great APIs, we seek to unlock the full power of the DailyPay stack, inspire our partners with innovation potential, make the developer and user experiences delightful, and offer leadership to the business with a unique perspective-a perspective of precisely what happens at the boundary between the DailyPay engine and the outside world.

We are parents, pet lovers, programmers, campers, dressmakers and photographers, but we are united by a set of shared core values .

We work a lot in Ruby, and our ideal candidate has Ruby experience - or is a fast learner!
