About us

We are Zip, a rapidly expanding global fintech headquartered out of Sydney, Australia and we are in a period of hyper growth. We are expanding rapidly in new markets like the US (Quadpay), UK and New Zealand, with interests in South Africa, Middle East and Europe.

We're here to simplify how the world pays for what they need by connecting merchants with consumers and offering them fair and seamless payment solutions, everywhere. 

Our values are at the heart of everything we do. They form our Mamba mentality - how we’re better than yesterday, and are used to create game-changing experiences for our customers and our people.

Critical to this goal is our Strategy function, which sits at the centre of all the major decisions we make as a business, and facilitates both a structured planning process and a rapid experimentation cycle to help shape strategic business decisions.

The role

You’ll be a key member of the small team that supports our executive leadership in evaluating the business decisions that drive our ongoing global growth. 

We’ll rely on you to run qualitative & quantitative analysis to inform decision-making and support corporate development, using your expert financial modelling skills to perform operational due-diligence on prospective investments.

You’ll also partner across Zip’s business units, working with other teams to develop data-driven insights that support our strategic projects, and to evaluate pilots and experiments that shape our thinking as a business.

It’s a highly visible role which will see you presenting analyses to senior stakeholders and executives. This is an opportunity to stretch your skills in new directions and have a significant impact on the next 10x growth of Zip.

To help us level up, you’ll need to bring:

  • 1-3 years experience as a strategy constant in a global or boutique strategy consultancy, or a high-calibre corporate strategy team
  • Expertise in developing a clear compelling story and deck, leveraging data, market research and independent analysis
  • Ability to analyse and synthesise large amounts of data and information, then develop insights and recommendations
  • Strong proficiency using Excel to model the financial and non-financial implications of business decisions
  • Excellent time management and ability to deliver on multiple projects at the same time
  • Ability to engage and work effectively with cross-functional and senior stakeholders
  • A Finance, Economics or Commerce undergraduate degree is desirable 
  • Passion for payments and technology is a must
  • We’re looking for someone who always finds new boundaries to cross - a future Zipster who will obsess over excellence and make constant improvements for our customers. We’ve removed the red tape here to get things done quickly, so if you see a problem, own the solution. You've gotta hustle at Zip!

    If you only meet some of the requirements for this role, that's okay. We value a diverse range of backgrounds and ideas and believe this is fundamental for our future success. So, if you have the curiosity to learn and the willingness to teach what you know, we'd love to hear from you.

    We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive workplace that provides equal opportunities to all persons regardless of their age, cultural background, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, veteran status, or anything else.
