Job description

The Payment group at Swan leverages industry knowledge, payments expertise, and general acumen to build and operate the banking products & platform that power money movements for all Swan financial products.

Ultimately, the group is working toward a future in which all of the complexity’s that comes with handling money (e.g. adopting new payment methods, booking and reconciliating entries - technical vs. accounting vs. cash, integrating with banks and financial partners globally, addressing regulatory obligations, etc.) is hidden from Swan’s partners and end-users.

The Payment Operations team is accountable for the daily run of Swan’s payment operations. Specifically, we manage:

Banking Transactions (Credit Transfers, Direct Debits, Cards, etc.)

  • End-to-end resolution of banking transactions-related incidents with internal (Engineering, etc.) and external (partner banks, card issuing processor, card scheme, card manufacturer, etc.) stakeholders
  • Clearing vs. settlement controls and reconciliation on all payment flows
  • Management of operational/day-to-day relationships with Swan’s financial partners and identification of process inefficiencies
  • Execution of non-STP transactions (<0.001% of total transactions)
  • Expertise and support to Swan teams (Technical Account Management, Customer Support, KYC, etc.)

Physical Cards & Chargebacks

  • Physical cards stock management w. Swan’s card manufacturer
  • Card disputes and chargebacks management

Regulatory Obligations & Controls

  • Control of automated cash segregation processes
  • Production of accounting and regulatory exports
  • Production of performance/fees reports for card schemes (Mastercard) and X-Pays (Apple Pay, Google Pay) as well as ad-hoc reports
  • Creation and maintenance of operational procedures
  • Level-1 controls on payment operations processes & actions

✨ As a Payment Operations Analyst, you will:

  • Run daily payment operations processes, actively participate in our continuous improvement approach, and help elaborate best practices, as we continue to launch and scale new payment products & services
  • Collaborate with other Payment Operations Analysts and help foster knowledge sharing among the team
  • Participate in tight feedback loops with Payment product managers and other internal stakeholders to improve product & processes
  • Lead specific ad-hoc payment operations improvement projects

Preferred experience

✨ You’re a great match if:

  • Knowledge/operational background of the payments/banking industry is a plus
  • Similar experience in a payment services provider or a bank is also a plus
  • Very rigorous, excellent organizational and analytical skills
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Proven team player and curious mindset
  • Flexibility with changing requirements in an evolving and fast-paced environment
  • Fluent in English
  • Our ideal teammate: Empathetic. Skilled. Frank. We love to challenge each other, and we leave our egos at the door.

It’s okay if you don’t tick all the boxes — don’t let imposture syndrome prevent you from applying! 🙌
