Careers

Our purpose is to empower our next generation to be great with money. To do this, we built SquareOne: A parent + child app, connected to a kid’s card, that parents control. Think of it as ‘my first bank account’ for the digital world.

Because we solve so many problems for everyday Kiwi families, our first product - SquareOne - only 1 year old, is resonating strongly, and we’re already the incumbent for youth accounts in NZ. We’re smashing our own goals, and have 110K+ customers, with 60K+ on paid plans, and the feedback is amazing. But don’t take our word for it - check out what our customers have to say!

We’re having a real impact on people’s lives, so now we set our sights on the next big challenges - including taking our Mastercard partnership to the next level with international expansion. 

BEYOND SQUAREONE

Our vision has always been much bigger than ‘just’ a pocket money app. SquareOne is already the fastest way in NZ to get an account, and what we’ve shipped on a fast cadence in our first year sees us already overtaking the main banks in terms of feature-set and capability. Next, we expand our tech-first finance offering out to more New Zealanders. This new product will be our focus this year, it’ll be the first of its kind here in NZ, and we’re excited to assemble the team to deliver this massive vision… We’d love you to join us.

WHY THIS IS AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY

You’re joining a small team at an early stage, with a huge goal, and the expertise, funding and partnerships to pull it off… That’s what makes this adventure so exciting.

In all of this, you'll have the backing of two passionate founders and a supportive team, and an established board containing industry veterans, who want you to achieve your best potential. Equity options are available, and growth potential is near-unlimited. We’d love to hear what you can do to make the boat go faster!

ABOUT YOU

Resilient + up for a challenge. You enjoy hard work, the thrill of chasing a massive target and place a high importance on company culture. Friends would say you're honest, capable and a natural high-achiever... And down to earth, with a decent sense of humour.

You love your work and understand that it's also meant to be fun. Mature enough to deal with a high-trust environment, flat structure, and lots of autonomy, you're probably looking for more than just a job. You may even be looking for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity...

OPEN POSITIONS

With your strong experience in massively scaling a business through smart targeting and best-in-class acquisition costs, you’ll bring a wealth of knowledge on:

  • Audience definition, creation, segmentation and constant refinement
  • Highly conversant with social channels + dashboards / tools (FB / Insta / TikTok…)
  • Being hands on daily to ensure maximum exposure to the right audience
  • Understanding of budgets and driving ever-better CPI and total CAC
  • Setting KPIs and ongoing optimisation / reporting (ie; how do we get bigger, faster?)
  • Funnel optimisation - from first encounter, right through to minimising churn
  • Bonus: Able to own lifecycle / engagement comms (Intercom / SendGrid)
  • Bonus: Strong (or interested to improve your skills) around paid search and SEO

ABOUT THE ROLE

We know the above is very broad, so an all-rounder who’s exceptionally sharp and willing to roll their sleeves up and learn lots on the fly will be a great fit. You might be at the stage in your career where you’re excelling, but you’re feeling the limitations of your current role / company and its prospects for your progression over the next decade or 2. Maybe wondering how you break through that ceiling?

We already have a number of systems and strategies that are working well, and it’s time to bring this capability in-house for the long haul. You’ll be working with industry-leading design / product / engineering teams, backed by enterprise-grade partners like Mastercard and, with our 3rd fundraise now in place, a VC-led cap table that’ll power us a long way.

You'll love working with technical teams as well as our CX team, to really get under the skin of the customer and what we solve for them in the real world… And then apply your deep thinking to your strategy, delivering it, and watching the results stream in, real-time, on our comprehensive in-house dashboards. There’s a lot you’ll own in this role.

As our first social / growth hire, you have the opportunity to build a set of standards and practices that will help the team ensure we maintain or accelerate our already impressive growth… You'll also be forging a path for future hires, meaning there's a leadership opportunity too if you want to pursue that path.

We’d love to hear what you can do to make the boat go faster!
