As the Payments Analyst, you’ll also be a member of the Data and Analytics Team, and deeply embedded in Team Money, a cross-functional team charged with building and scaling our Payments Platform. You’ll be working closely with our third-party banking and processing partners and collaborating with Engineering, Operations, Compliance, and Finance to identify and mitigate risks, optimize payment workflows, and maintain compliance with industry regulations.

  • Identify areas for optimization and work with stakeholders to prioritize and plan for improvement.

  • Collaborate with software engineers and product managers to implement and measure product enhancements.

  • Monitor and analyze payment transactions to identify discrepancies, errors, or potential fraud, and take appropriate action.

  • Conduct thorough investigations into payment-related issues, collaborating with internal teams to resolve discrepancies promptly.

  • Develop and maintain detailed documentation of payment processes, procedures, and workflows.

  • Perform reconciliations and audits of financial data to ensure accuracy and integrity.

  • Build out reporting for the compliance checks to ensure our systems and processes are working as intended and in compliance with all local laws and regulations.

  • Assist in the development and execution of strategies to improve payment processing efficiency and reduce operational risks.

  • Support cross-functional projects and initiatives related to payment systems and operations.

  • Help ensure adherence to regulatory requirements and compliance standards, staying updated on industry regulations and best practices.

What you have

  • 2+ years of experience in payment operations or a similar role within the fintech, banking, or payments industry.

  • Proficiency in utilizing analytical tools and software for data analysis and reporting (e.g., SQL, Python).

  • Strong understanding of payment systems, including ACH, card networks, and emerging payment technologies.

  • Excellent problem-solving skills with the ability to analyze complex data sets and draw actionable insights.

  • Detail-oriented with a focus on accuracy and the ability to work efficiently in a fast-paced environment.

  • Strong communication skills to collaborate effectively with cross-functional teams and stakeholders.
