About us and our mission

Blockchain and Web3 technology has the potential to dramatically improve the way payments work on the internet simply because it’s cheaper and faster to send money directly to anyone, anywhere without the need for intermediaries such as banks. We believe in a world where Web3 becomes mainstream with 100s of millions, and ultimately billions, of users with many new projects flooding in, all in need of great payment tools.

Our mission at Helio is to accelerate the adoption of Web3 payments and we’re building a complete Web3 native-payments stack starting with Solana. We make it easy for anyone to get paid in crypto instantly using our pre-built checkouts or integrate payments directly into their store, app, content, game or platform.

Helio delivers a solution that’s cheaper, faster and offers a better UX than any other payments platform. Solutions include:

  • Pay Streams: on-chain, time-metered billing to dramatically lower the cost and flexibility of subscriptions, SaaS payments and memberships

  • E-commerce: spin up an e-commerce page in seconds to accept crypto payments instantly

  • Web3 paywalls: monetise gated/metered access to anything ⇒ events, games, data, video and more

  • Pay Links: lower the cost and increase the speed of day-to-day payments such as invoicing, freelancing, services, tipping, split-payments, salaries and more

We’re an experienced team who built, scaled and exited SaaS companies. Our ambition is to build Helio into a significant, lasting company that can fulfil our mission and grow to serve millions of customers over time. We have exciting opportunities for exceptional talent to join the project at this early stage. We look for deep technical skills and singular motivation to make an impact and pursue new responsibilities. We hire both remote and in our London HQ.

You will

  • Manage the customer discovery, product roadmap, and prioritisation process

  • Shape product strategy, especially customer targeting, market sizing, segmentation, product positioning, acquisition channels, pricing, funding, and risk frameworks

  • Work with design to build the best possible customer journeys

  • Write high quality and concise product specs

  • Identify customer problems, ensure we are 100% customer centric, ensure our product decisions are data-driven

  • Work closely with the engineering team to ensure timely delivery of product features

  • Support our ambitious growth plans, new products and market expansions with our platform strategy

You may be fit for this role if you have:

  • +5 years of product experience with a platform focus, ideally in payments/fintech

  • Solid understanding of Web3 and payments

  • Proven track record in building products in nascent markets 

  • Exceptional customer discovery & validation skills 

  • Desire to build, maintain and improve anything you work on with a high level of ownership

  • Excellent analytical, organisational and communication skills

  • Fiercely outcome oriented, with an ability to rally everyone around a clear goal

  • Knowledge and experience is critical but we are a startup treading in uncharted territory so attitude is even more important. We’re looking for people that like uncertainty and want to figure out how to do things that haven’t been done before. You’re a true team player and inherently positive. Where others see problems, you see solutions.

Benefits:

  • £75k (or EUR equivalent for remote)

  • Significant equity stake by joining the project as the first PM

  • Flexible work environment and autonomy over how you work

  • Unlimited holidays (we don’t have a policy but encourage everyone to take a healthy minimum)
