Job Description

BlockChyp, one of the fastest growing payment companies in the country, has moved engineering and operations to Utah. We're staffing up and looking for an experienced merchant underwriter to help us ramp up our underwriting pipeline.

If you're tired of working with outdated, half broken tools for shady payment companies that don't respect or value you, this is the opportunity you've been looking for. You'll not only help BlockChyp setup its formal risk and underwriting programs, you'll work directly with the engineering team to develop and refine our in house underwriting and risk analysis tools. You'll get a level of trust, autonomy, and respect unheard of in the sales bro driven payments industry and you'll be on the fast track for advancement since the underwriting and risk departments will grow under you.

This is a full time position with benefits. All candidates must be local to the Silicon Slopes region, but you'll have the option to work on site in our Pleasant Grove offices, remotely, or hybrid.

Preferred Qualifications

  • At least five years experience in a merchant underwriting or commercial credit underwriting role.
  • Four year degree in economics, business, or another quantitative discipline.
  • Familiarity with common KYC tools like Verisk G2, Thomson-Reuters, Lexis-Nexis, and Microbilt.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Exposure to the TSYS set of acquirer tools, including Express, PPM, CBOS, and MAS.
  • A strong desire to change the state of the payments industry.

About BlockChyp

BlockChyp was founded by point-of-sale industry veterans to fix long neglected technical problems in the integrated payments space. BlockChyp isn't just another ISO reselling the same junk all the other ISOs sell. BlockChyp has developed a full stack end-to-end semi-integrated payment solution for independent point of sale developers.

BlockChyp is still small enough to be fun (less than 100 employees) and large enough to be stable. Get the real startup experience by joining one of the most innovative and ethical payment companies in the world.
