Job Description

The last two decades have seen an explosion in new payment services - from digital wallets, mobile payments, and open banking, to Buy Now Pay Later and crypto. Great for consumers! But, incredibly complex for merchants and developers. That’s where Primer comes in.

Primer is the world's first automation platform for payments. With Primer, merchants and developers have all the underlying infrastructure and "lego blocks" they need to build the best buying experiences for their customers. Any developer can build a connection on Primer; merchants then simply 'click and connect' to the services they need to build their desired payment flows within their Primer dashboard.

Since starting in January 2020, we've raised funding from top tier investors including Accel, Balderton and Iconiq. Our all-star team from across the world of payments and fintech includes ex Braintree-PayPal, Stripe, Checkout, Tink, Recurly, TrueLayer, Paddle, Plaid, Kount and more - come and join us!

  • Quickly get to the heart of what our customers are trying to achieve
  • troubleshoot and resolve complex problems

  • familiarity with Zendesk, JIRA, Salesforce, and other tools of the trade
  • great prioritization and triage skills
  • the analytical skill to understand the problems our customers face

What you’ll do:

  • Troubleshoot complex issues for our merchants, communicating with both customers and partners via email and Slack, and tracking issues to resolution in Zendesk
  • Work internally with engineers and product teams to find root causes and identify solutions
  • Develop expert knowledge of Primer’s products and the payments landscape in general
  • Contribute to our knowledge base and suggest improvements to our documentation

  • We're a rapidly growing company, where everyone can have an input into how things are done - you'll wear multiple hats and roll up your sleeves, building Primer with us from the ground up

Experience in payments isn't a requirement, as long as you're comfortable learning on your feet.
