What is the context of this role ?

At the heart of Boku’s payment operation is our ability to collect and settle money around the world for our merchants who sell products and services internationally.

From day 1, you will oversee a number of critical technologies used for managing the company’s payment contracts, executing reconciliation procedures, and producing settlement reports. You would be expected to collaborate directly with the payment operations group in order to co-design the processes and tools that will enable the kind of operational performance needed to power Boku’s business growth.
