Weavr is a platform that provides everything digital innovators need to build and run embedded banking solutions for their applications.
Financial services are always a means to another end: to buy the stuff you need or want, to bridge the gap between paying and getting paid, to get peace of mind in a risky world, etc. A new breed of digital applications start with the end in mind and integrate the required financial services as part of their solution: rather than asking customers to go to the bank, they bring the bank to their customers. This trend is called embedded banking.
Embedded banking is a hot space today, but it is complex and expensive for digital businesses to incorporate into their products and services. Weavr is changing that by making it easy and quick for any innovator to design, build and run embedded banking solutions that are a perfect fit for what they need in their application. Weavr’s approach is to simplify the process enough to deliver all this online, and in many cases, purely through self-service.
Simply put, we see our purpose to seamlessly connect financial services with real human needs in a digital world.

Why Join Weavr
This role is an opportunity to join a successful serial founder team at the point where it has just raised funding from leading VCs associated with Fintech and the Digital Ecosystem: Anthemis, QED Investors and Seedcamp. We are now just starting on the next step of the journey: delivering product-market fit in one or two markets within Europe before we scale in these markets and extend to other markets and geographies.
By joining now, you will be at the start of an exciting journey that will be tough, but where you will have considerable influence and an opportunity for high rewards.
Place of Work
Presently our team is concentrated around London and Malta but we expect to have presence in other capitals in Europe. We often work remotely but have face to face meetings from time to time. We expect the role to be based in Malta, but welcome candidates living in other European cities to apply, either to work remotely or would consider relocating to Malta.
Your remuneration package will depend on your experience and will include health insurance and stock options.
We are unashamedly geeky. We prefer smart to big. We don’t see borders and barriers, we see connections and bridges. We are dedicated to helping ‘makers’ or all size or stripe succeed. The community of makers that we’re empowering is big and diverse, so there’s place for all types in our team – but it’s a team. What matters are our values: create value through simplification, be accessible and collaborative, and be open to change. That’s as true of our products as it is of how we work.
Commitment to diversity & inclusion
All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, colour, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, national origin, disability. We are a diverse and inclusive team and we actively seek to recruit people with different backgrounds and experiences
