At WeGift, we’re enabling value to go further, move faster and be used more freely. We’re completely reinventing the digital branded currency category, and creating a world where everyone has access to the global economy with no banks, borders or boundaries. To date we have built the industry’s premier digital rewards platform and are already working with the world’s leading brands like Amazon, Nike and Uber and corporate partners like Sky, Coinbase and Vodafone. Together we’re helping millions of people around the world store, send and spend value like never before.
We recognise that building a world class business requires a world class effort, so we make sure that each team member is appreciated for the unique value and skills they bring. We are driven by the knowledge that there are still millions of businesses and consumers (in a £600 billion industry!) that we can help. If you’re looking for an environment that will inspire you to dream bigger, work harder and make a difference every day, you’re in the right place.
Our technology team is a small group of passionate engineers and product managers who are right at the heart of core business processes. To give a few recent examples of new features:
WeGift Select. This allows us to give the customer choice, and therefore go beyond simply reselling gift cards and towards our strategic vision of helping value to flow more freely in the global economy. This project was technically challenging due to a requirement for it to work across a wide selection of devices.
Self-serve brand on-boarding. WeGift is growing rapidly, which means we have to challenge ourselves to use technology to give a great experience to our brand partners without them needing a lot of support from the customer success team.
Ongoing integration with gift card processors. Right at the heart of WeGift’s operations, this technology needs to scale seamlessly and maintain high standards of reliability, maintainability and security. We’re also constantly asking ourselves how we can make this process more efficient – how can we make a capital investment now to reduce operational spend in the future, and that in turn requires a creative take on the underlying technology.
