Tech Lead of a Fintech x SaaS (Prepaid Salary Service) company

Others Server Side, Back End Engineer, Network Engineer

About the company
This company operates a Fintech×SaaS product for instant salary payment, allowing people to receive their salary immediately for their work without waiting for pay day. The service enables companies to pay students and foreign employees on the same day, providing a flexible transfer of money that is not based on a monthly salary. Since there is no need to issue a credit card or go through a membership screening process, even those who do not have a credit card can use their own salary for this service. The service is also highly beneficial to companies, as it not only increases the number of job applications by providing an immediate payment system, but also reduces the short-term turnover rate by visualizing salaries.

In July 2019, the company raised 700 million yen in funding from three companies: a major domestic advertising agency, a major domestic company that operates SNS, and a major fund. The company has now raised a total of more than 1.5 billion yen in funding. In the future, the company aims to develop its business in such a way as to promote sound asset formation and consumption activities not only for the younger generation but for all generations.

The company has been in business for 4 years, but they have already completed the 0→1 phase and are going through the 1→100 phase. 700 companies have already adopted their system, the number of users has surpassed 140,000, and major companies are introducing our system.
