Community Manager

Job description

About Zeller

We believe that businesses of all sizes deserve better financial and payment products and services. 

Australian businesses are amazingly entrepreneurial, driven and passionate, yet when they seek important products from local financial services companies, they are let down by slow applications, protracted onboarding, opaque pricing, restrictive contracts and forced to use outdated solutions that no longer meet the innovative requirements of a modern business. 

Our company, backed by leading VCs, is a collective of experienced payment and tech industry professionals who are redefining business banking and how Australian businesses get paid by their customers. With an exciting roadmap of innovative new products, we are building a high performing team to take on the incumbents.

If you are passionate about innovation, thrive in fast-moving environments, love a challenge, hate bureaucracy and can’t think of anything more exciting than disrupting the banks, we’re putting together a team you might want to join. 

Role Description
