Onboarding Analyst at GoCardless
London, GB

Help our merchants make recurring payments simple.

GoCardless is growing fast. We’ve built a world-class product that helps companies in multiple countries collect recurring payments. Over 35,000 businesses - such as The Guardian, Box.com and Thomas Cook - already rely on us to handle their payments, and hundreds more join us every week.

We are looking for a bright, process-driven and organised person with a passion for working directly with clients to help guide new merchants through the implementation of our product so they are able to start collecting payments quickly and unlock the desired business value.

The role

As an Onboarding Analyst you will be responsible for the successful adoption of GoCardless by newly signed small & medium sized businesses looking to take payments by Direct Debit, guiding individual merchants through the implementation and setup flow, and liaising with various teams internally to get merchants live. Merchants use us in a variety of ways (as a standalone solution, integrating us into their bespoke software, or activating an integration with an existing software package), and providing a smooth and quick setup process helps them realise the benefits that led them to choose GoCardless in the first place.

Day to day, you will:

  • Co-ordinate the merchant onboarding process for new business opportunities for GoCardless
  • Lead client calls where you will guide individual merchants through the GoCardless onboarding / implementation processes
  • Work closely with our sales team to design implementation plans to help our merchants to onboard successfully
  • Liaise with the the Onboarding Operations team who are responsible for managing banking relationships to get your merchants live as quickly as possible
  • Optimise the full end to end flow of the merchant onboarding process, and suggest improvement areas to make the onboarding journey as effortless as possible
  • Develop tools and techniques to accelerate adoption and reduce effort through streamlined and automated processes, both for yourself and for merchants
  • Attend and contribute to weekly meetings, reporting on updates for merchant implementation timescales by validating timelines and actions, as well as flagging issues, risks and dependencies
  • Collaborate with our Head of Onboarding to ensure processes benefit the entire team

What we're looking for

You should apply if:

  • You are passionate about customer experience, enjoy working directly with clients and going the extra mile
  • You are an excellent communicator, with a solid command of English (written and verbal). Fluency in an additional European language is advantageous (Spanish or German especially)
  • You are very organised, structured and process driven
  • You have experience juggling multiple demands on your time and can manage and prioritise various important and urgent issues
  • You consistently operate with the client’s needs at the forefront
  • You enjoy taking ownership of projects you work on and take pride in the execution and delivery of these
  • You are proactive and driven, making the most of opportunities you are given and taking the initiative to seek additional ones

Prior experience in client implementation or a keen knowledge of project management, implementation planning (particularly in a payment industry) and stakeholder management is desirable. However, an ability to learn fast, deliver high quality outputs and improve ways of working as you progress are equally valuable.

Our team come from a variety of backgrounds and we welcome diversity – if you're unsure, please apply.
