Lead Full-Stack Engineer in .

Closed job - No longer receiving applicants

At sueldoYa we’re committed to improving the lives of millions of workers in South America.

People go to work every day, have expenses every day but they get paid only once per month. This rigidity of salaries creates lots of problems for those who live paycheck to paycheck. When things get tough before payday, they are prevented from using their already earned wages - they have no other option than to go overdraft, use payday loans, and other types of really expensive consumer credit.

We think this is wrong - people should be able to use their own money! - and we are working really hard to change it.

We’re a fintech, B2B2C, building a platform that allows employees to access earned wages on-demand, regardless of payday. sueldoYa gives workers the peace of mind of accessing their own money when they need it.

We’re extremely focused on solving this problem - we know it is the right thing to do and it is important to us that you share our beliefs.
