Project Manager (Remote)

Back to Careers

Sandbox Banking is looking for an exceptional project manager who wants to reshape how innovative software is integrated in the financial services industry.  We have rapidly growing revenue, are backed by Y Combinator (W17), and have raised seed capital.  We are a remote team with employees across the continental US.

Sandbox is an equal opportunity employer.  We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

Product

Sandbox is a universal adapter for banks and credit unions.  It provides financial institutions (FIs) a better way to integrate fintech software with their existing systems.

US regional/community banks and credit unions are looking to overhaul the digital experiences they deliver to customers.  Increasingly, they solve this challenge by sourcing software from fintech companies that specialize in building and operating financial services software.  Unfortunately, distributing new software to FIs has historically been a long and painful process because of data security and system integration hurdles.

Sandbox empowers FIs and fintech vendors to quickly and safely build new integrations — our Glyue application lets anyone who can use Excel formulas connect banking systems.  Furthermore, the platform’s fine-grained authentication and permissions model provides FIs with strict control over which people/software can access particular banking data and operations.

  • Willingness and ability to proactively and patiently collaborate with our customers and fintech partners.  To succeed, this individual will need to constantly discuss/record/broadcast business processes and requirements.  There are times when acquiring a single piece of critical information requires two or three conversations with different project stakeholders; this project manager must be unrelenting in such scenarios.
  • Fanatical passion for delivering the best possible experience to all stakeholders
  • Willingness to re-prioritize work as project requirements change
  • Ability and willingness to throw time at a problem. Our project managers are expected to be available during customer business hours but often need additional hours with our remote US-based team to solve problems
