About Gratify Pay

Gratify Pay is a Canadian B2B Fintech company founded in Vancouver in 2021. We specialize in creating innovative payment solutions for our customers; Payment Processors and Payment Facilitators (PayFac).

Our premier product is a buy-now-pay-later platform. BNPL companies are experiencing hyper-growth, and in the process disintermediating Merchants from their PayFac – cutting them out of the purchase and reducing revenue associated with the Merchant. PayFacs can integrate the Gratify BNPL platform to extend their product offering to Merchants, reducing disintermediation while also increasing revenue.

We pride ourselves on customer experience, speed to market, and innovation. We are building a bank-grade platform and products to support our partners and are looking for like-minded team members to join us on our mission.

About the Role

We are fully cloud based (AWS) and you will be a key member of our Platform team – responsible for all aspects of our information security. You will help manage, architect and build (with the help of our other teams) our cloud security, infosec, and compliance posture.

You are energetic, ambitious, motivated and precise, and you pride yourself on designing secure, maintainable, and elegant systems, processes, and tools that can withstand threat actors, compliance audits, and client scrutiny. You think of infrastructure as code, servers as objects (in an object-oriented kind of way) and are happy working with no servers in sight (in a serverless kind of way). You are comfortable in a high compliance environment, understand endpoint security, authentication/authorization, and cryptography.

This is a permanent, full-time position. Due to Covid all staff are working remotely. When the office opens, all staff will continue with a flexible mixed office/remote schedule.

  • 3+ years of experience in managing cloud security, including serverless

  • 3+ years of experience in at least one modern programming language

  • CISSP, SSCP, Sec+, Net+, Cloud+ or AWS Security Specialty Certification
  • Experience in scaled out environments and distributed systems
  • Deep knowledge of AWS security suite (Guard Duty, Security Hub, WAF, etc)

What we offer in return includes the beauty of Vancouver, colleagues that are as brilliant as they are likeable, and the flexibility to work the way that is most suitable to you. We offer a competitive salary, extended health benefits, flex-time schedules, and a work environment that encourages and supports your growth & development.
