We're a YC-backed fintech company that powers travel & tourism businesses in 40 countries across Latin America, Africa and Asia. Our payment platform helps tourism businesses to save on payment costs and manage and take bookings more flexibly – while spending less time on admin and more time with their customers.
We work with hotels (from budget to boutique) and activity operators like dive schools, surf lodges and yoga retreats. Our initial focus is emerging destinations, in countries where payment and booking systems are a significant challenge.
Our platform is trusted hundreds of tourism businesses around the world, and we've helped hundreds of thousands of travellers to pay in over 100 currencies.
We're working on ambitious plans to revolutionise the experience of independent travel – by helping travellers make the most of their precious time abroad, and giving local tourism operators the vital tools they need to run their business.
We're primarily based in London, and we're backed by Y Combinator (the investors behind Airbnb, Dropbox and Stripe). Our team has deep expertise across travel, finance and technology – with previous experience at Cambridge University, Harvard and BCG.
About the Role
Do you have plans to go to travelling to one (or more!) of the countries listed here? We're looking for roaming travellers with good people skills to do some work on the road for us.
We help tourist businesses to accept card payments (think of all those ‘Cash Only’ signs), and we’re looking for people to help us get the word out. Our Nomads are travelling around the world, spreading the work about Tab as they go.
You'll need to be able to work around 20 hours a week, so you'll still have plenty of free time to explore while you're on the road. If you're going to Latin America you need to be able to speak Spanish to a high level.
Your time will be spent talking to business managers and owners in person about Tab - and helping them to apply and start using their Tab account. We’ll give lots of training and advice on how to explain Tab, and you’ll develop your own style as you talk to more businesses. You’ll have the freedom to work out what works best for you in each place you visit.
You'll need to be confident talking to strangers, and able to work independently in lots of different environments – from party hostels to boutique hotels. Ideally, you'll already have experience of working or travelling in emerging destinations, and you'll be interested in how tourist businesses operate.
You’ll earn around $500/month, plus $100 for each business you visit that starts using Tab, with no cap. We expect most nomads to earn over $1,000/month, based on 20 hours/week. So you’ll have the opportunity to travel further and to do more as you go along!
You'll need to be travelling in Tab target countries for at least three months. If you haven't started your trip, you need to be starting before the end of January. If your trip starts later, just check back again nearer the time!
This is a unique role and you may have questions – so please submit an application, and you can include any questions on the application form.
*You just need to be confident talking to people both in person and on the phone.
