About Wayflyer

Our mission is to give the world access to the best products by empowering great brands to reach their growth potential. Join us!

Wayflyer is revolutionising eCommerce by levelling the playing field for founders across the world. Our first product, the Merchant Cash Advance, solves a major pain point for brands: access to short-term finance to fund inventory and marketing spend. Since launching in April 2020, we’ve deployed over $3.3bn in funding to over 4,000 eCommerce founders across 11 countries.

We’ve helped companies like Wild, Dock & Bay and Branch take their businesses to the next level. Check out this video from Davie Fogherty, another one of our brilliant customers, giving a great explanation of what we do and how we helped The Oodie go from strength to strength.

We’re a fast-growing, venture-backed startup that serves a critical need for eCommerce entrepreneurs. You'll be joining an ambitious, collaborative team that's working on a huge opportunity.

We announced our Series B in February 2022 raising $150m in funding at $1.6bn valuation; backed by world-leading VCs including QED and DST Global.

Teams at Wayflyer are truly cross-functional. Regardless of your role at Wayflyer, you'll work with a variety of different disciplines and teams from around the world on a multitude of challenging projects and game-changing products to revolutionise the eCommerce landscape.

What you’ll do

  • Facilitate the monthly management accounts cycle, ensuring accuracy and timeliness.

  • Assist in year-end processes, including statutory accounting requirements, and collaborate with external auditors for all entities.

  • Support Commercial Finance in budgeting and forecasting

  • Support our Tax Team to fulfil relevant obligations.

  • Ensure compliance with relevant regulatory requirements and debt covenants.

  • Contribute to the development and maintenance of the accounting policy manual, staying aware of changes to accounting policies and analysing their impact.

  • Engage in ad hoc projects aimed at enhancing processes and methodologies within the finance team and company.

  • Drive efficiency through automation initiatives, taking ownership and action to streamline workflows.

  • You will have a positive attitude and someone who assumes ownership with a bias for action and not afraid to get stuck in or challenge the status quo

Knowledge, skills and experience

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent work experience in Accounting and Finance

  • Proven experience in financial operations support, preferably in a multinational tech environment.

  • Willingness to learn accounting principles and audit procedures relevant to our organisation.

  • Familiarity with NetSuite, Xero and Fathom accounting software is highly desirable

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills

What is important to point out is that you can do most or all of the above mentioned and can point to your real experience doing it. You’ve probably done it at companies of different shapes, sizes and industries. Given what we do, experience in financial services, fintech and business-to-business organisations is particularly interesting to us.

On top of that, you’re amazing at prioritisation. You make sure you’re not spread too thin while also giving teams the support they need. You spend your time on the things that make a positive difference. People get why you’ve chosen to say ‘yes’, ‘no’, or ‘not yet’, and are ok with it.

What you’re like as a person and how you treat people is a big deal for us. People love working with you. You’re helpful and generous with your time and knowledge. People love helping you back. People know where they stand with you.

You’re always looking to learn and grow, on a personal and professional level. And you’re always looking to help others learn and grow by sharing your own knowledge and experience.

You know why diversity, equality, inclusion and belonging matters, and speak up when we can do better.
