Pinwheel is the easiest way for users to connect their payroll accounts to your app.

Pinwheel provides an API that makes it easy for any user to connect their payroll account to any app.  By building pipes that connect payroll platforms to banks, lenders, and other service providers, we hope to help underserved consumers gain equitable access to financial services when they need it most, while sparking innovation of new financial products.

Financial institutions often rely on traditional credit scoring systems that look at a consumer's past behavior and limited demographic data. More than half of Americans have a poor credit score or no score at all, and 78% live paycheck to paycheck. Without access to affordable financial products, they resort to high-interest credit cards, payday loans, and trigger overdraft fees to make ends meet — which ultimately push them into deeper cycles of debt. 

At Pinwheel, we believe that unlocking API access to payroll systems helps build towards a fairer financial system. Most people's money can be traced back to a payroll system (e.g., ADP, Paychex, Gusto) — meaning those systems sit at the top of the financial stack and harbor a wealth of income and employment data, and tapping into them offers limitless possibilities. Here are just a few ways Pinwheel's solution helps our customers and their end users:

  • Enable real-time, seamless direct deposit switching within a bank's UX, driving LTV and account profitability for banks, and giving users control over where their paycheck goes
  • Let consumers share their income and employment data directly with lenders, no paperwork required — speeding up the process and delivering the high quality data lenders need in real time
  • Allow borrowers to repay their loans directly from their payroll — massively de-risking loans for lenders and allowing customers to access fairer interest rates

What are we looking for? The Pinwheel Integrations Team is responsible for building and maintaining integrations to hundreds of 3rd party payroll systems. The team has grown rapidly over the past year and will continue to do so. We are now looking for an engineering manager to help scale and manage a distributed team of diverse and talented engineers.

  • Work alongside product managers and other engineering managers to prioritize and delegate work.
  • Maintain a high bar for engineering talent by working with the recruiting team to screen and interview for top-tier candidates.
  • Help unblock engineers on technical issues as they arise.
  • Conduct frequent check-ins with engineers to address any concerns they may have.
  • Manage the performance of engineers by setting goals and working with them to achieve those goals.

  • 4+ years of experience writing code for backend services.
  • Prior tech lead or engineering management experience.
