Blockchain technology can fix many inherent problems of today’s online payments systems including high fees and slow money settlement. We also believe in a world where the Solana blockchain becomes mainstream @ +100M wallets with many new projects (across NFT, gaming, defi, DAOs, e-commerce, Web2->3) flooding in, all in need of great Web3 payments tools.

Our mission at Helio is to accelerate the adoption of Web3 payments and we’re building a full Web3 payments stack for Solana first. We make it easy to accept, transact and integrate crypto payments with a consumer-simple UX. Customers use our pre-built checkouts or simply embed payments directly into their store, app, content, game or platform using USDC, SOL or any SPL-token.

We help projects grow sales, communities and token utility with this and more:

Memberships: power subscriptions & SaaS access to your app, community, support, etc

Merchandise: power e-commerce & checkouts. NFT-verified discounts & access

Web3 paywalls: metered or gated access to anything ⇒ events, games, data, video or any online content

Invoicing: freelance work, services, tipping, split-payments, pay links, etc.

We’re an experienced team who have built, scaled and exited SaaS companies. Our ambition is to build Helio into a significant, lasting company that can fulfil our mission and grow to serve millions of customers over time. We have exciting opportunities for exceptional talent to join the project at this early stage. We look for deep technical skills and singular motivation to make an impact and pursue new responsibilities. We hire both remote and in our London HQ.

You will help build and architect the foundation of the Helio software platform which all other systems will flow from and interact with. You will use all your previous experiences, skills and initiative to get things right from inception - which is to a naturally high standard of code, logic and engineering prowess in general. We want to build a platform that is led by engineering excellence paired with pragmatic approaches to solving problems and delivering Fintech grade quality throughout our products and services.

Technical knowledge is critical but we are a startup treading in uncharted territory so attitude is even more important. We’re looking for people that like uncertainty and want to figure out how to do things that haven’t been done before. You’re a true team player and inherently positive. Where others see problems, you see solutions.

Above all this, we are looking for engineers that want to do the best they can, learn, improve, grow, lead, help others and add value every single day for yourself, your teammates and for Helio
