Engagement Manager



Sales & Business Development

Posted on Tuesday, August 22, 2023

We are Banked:

We’re building a global, digital payments network, based on API access to highly secure banking rails, but free from the limitations of their decades old technology and cost model to support it. 

Payments have so far missed out on the cost benefits that come from scale and the innovation potential of the digitisation of all other areas of our lives. With deep partnerships across the ecosystem we’re making real-time payments work for a digital world. We believe moving money + data together is an untapped source of innovation, and will change not only the way we buy things, but the way we live with more useful and relevant experiences. We believe it's what makes us different from other payment providers.

We’ve recently raised our Series A funding for the next phase of our company roadmap, so we’re expanding the operations team to meet the coming, new challenges. 

Engagement Manager

We’re looking for a customer-facing Engagement Manager who can help with all aspects of successful engagements for customers across our strategic accounts while thinking about how and where we should invest to improve these processes. 

You will take on large and impactful projects from supporting the sales cycle, to post-sales delivery. This includes including navigating customer requirements, managing their end-to-end delivery,  to participating in sharing novel product requirements with large prospective partners, and improving our overall delivery processes. You’ll participate in the direction of the company and products, where you’ll be part of a small team where everyone has a voice.

Additionally, as Banked’s first Engagement Manager you will have the opportunity to define the delivery engagement function and team structure with both the Head of Sales and the General Manager for the region.
