Your Role at Bolt

Payment infrastructure on the internet is fragmented and broken. Bolt is building a future where sending payments is as easy as sending messages. To do this, we’ve redesigned payments from the ground up. Bolt makes online commerce easy, secure, ethical, and efficient for all parties. To solve such a large problem, we’ve put together an incredible team and are selectively adding to it.


Bolt is hiring a Payment Operations Manager to empower us to reach the next stage of growth. The ideal candidate has experience in setting up and streamlining payment and/or treasury operations, able to manipulate and reconcile large data sets, and is excited to define and scale processes which will allow Bolt to scale and grow.
