Born on the steps of a Vegas hotel, we were always going to be troublemakers. We started from one belief: that small businesses deserved better. 

Paymentsense Ltd was founded in 2009. 

With financial success, an impressive trophy cabinet (The Sunday Times Tech Track, Inc 5000, Great Places To Work to name a few) and a culture to be proud of, we knew we had built something great. In 2019, with 85,000 customers while steadily onboarding 2,500 more each month, we knew our customers could be happier, so we ripped up the rule book. To become genuinely customer-first in our culture and thinking, we identified all our customers' pain points and created 'The Wall of Pain'. That's when we knew that to offer the best solutions, we needed to build a new product. 

Enter, Dojo.

Dojo represents an enormous organisational shift; we had to restructure how we thought and did things. In a year since we officially launched Dojo, we've welcomed over 20,000 new customers, 500 new team members and called two brand new offices home. We've evolved into a dynamic, product-led business creating our own payments products, integrated card machines and transaction monitoring app. Here, we go home each day knowing we've made a difference —our industry-leading NPS score and 5-star Trustpilot rating tells us that! 

At Dojo, we are curious, relentless and customer-obsessed. Our ambition is much greater than getting business owners paid. We're turning transactions into meaningful relationships with a set of tools and technology designed to empower businesses to thrive in the experience economy.

Enabled by technology, but powered by people.

As we enter our next growth phase and embark on another exciting shift towards a B2B2C model following the acquisition of queue-management system and consumer app, Walkup, we have a lot of work to do. Over the next year, the business will transform again as we steady the ship for multinational growth and product diversification. We're looking for people who can enhance our agility, ambition and risk-taking mentality while turning us into a well-oiled machine that's well-positioned to shape the experience economy.

The Role

If you’re the kind of person who loves to develop cutting-edge automated solutions to tough business problems and craft game-changing insights with data that change how an organisation that touches millions of people every day thinks and operates, this is the role for you.

At Paymentsense, the data team is moving into an exciting new phase and you will have the opportunity to play an important role in its development, working at a senior level in the team and shaping how we deliver projects. We want you to bring your expertise with technology and experience of solving commercial problems into an environment where you’ll be working alongside other experts in both domains to scale our processes and make smarter decisions.

What you will do…

  • As we’re redesigning and rearchitecting our entire data environment, you’ll play an important role in shaping our BI reporting & self-service technology stack and implementing best practices. You’ll help to shape the direction of the data organisation through the adoption of new best-in-class data sources, services and tools to ensure we’re staying ahead.

  • You’ll work across the organisation to identify opportunities to improve decision making, designing and delivering BI solutions that make us smarter, quicker and faster with every release.

  • As you develop in the company, you’ll acquire an in-depth understanding of one or more areas of the business, acting as an advisor and partner and help them to improve performance outcomes through the use of data and technology. 

  • You’ll help to shape our unit and organisational KPIs and ensure the data and reporting is there to support them. 

  • You’ll act as an expert mentor and develop and lead training and workshops to raise the standards of our utilisation of data across the company. Whether it’s training analysts on automating their workflows or business units on how to use self-service tools, you’ll be raising the bar. 

What you will bring…


  • You have a strong academic background in computer science, information systems, engineering, machine learning or other quantitative subject. 

  • You are an expert in SQL.

  • You’ve got demonstrable experience in developing data reporting and BI solutions in  commercial environments. You know how to shape requirements and work productively to achieve impact.

  • You’ve got a keen eye for detail and are renowned for having high standards in your work. 

  • You can capture people’s attention and explain complex ideas whether you’re presenting to a room full of senior leaders or writing documentation. 

  • You’re the commercially-minded person in the engineering discussion and the person pointing out the technical considerations in the meeting of business people.

  • You know how to lead and execute a BI project from requirements gathering to satisfactory delivery, communicating to your stakeholders proactively and organising resources.


You’ve got experience with:

  • MPPs, especially BigQuery.

  • Cloud services and infrastructure, especially GCP.

  • BI dashboarding and self-service tools, especially PowerBI and Looker.

  • A scripting language such as Python and orchestrating processes with Airflow.

  • Implementing and following best practices in CICD and Git in a data environment.

  • ELT tools and processes. We’ve recently started using dbt to support this. 

  • You have an interest in crafting the kind of visualisations that grab people’s attention and build intuition.


On top of a top quartile salary that reflects your skills and the markets we operate in, we've built a benefits package to show you how much we care about:

  • Your growth with our ever-growing talent and leadership development offer and regular feedback through CultureAmp and Trust Cycles. 

  • Creating connections with our social clubs, communities, celebrations, social channels and more.

  • Looking after your mind with support from our Employee Assistance Programme, access to Spill therapists and our mental health champions. 

  • Doing wellbeing properly with Vitality Health Insurance, free eye tests – plus, get those endorphins flowing with on-site fitness classes including yoga, boxing and HIIT. 

  • Protecting you and yours with Group life assurance, our salary sacrifice pension plan and 26 weeks full pay maternity and 10 weeks full pay for secondary carers after a year’s service

  • Helping you give back with Payroll Giving (donate to a cause or charity of your choice, tax-free!) and a whole host of fundraising events for charities chosen by our employees

  • Giving you the extras with up to 30 days holiday, a dog-friendly office, cycle to work scheme, season ticket loans and Dojo perks our platform with plenty of tasty hospitality and retail discounts.

Diversity & Inclusion

We are an Equal Opportunities employer committed to a diverse and representative team. Different opinions, perspectives and personalities push us forward.  We want to hear from people who are passionate about their work and align with our values. Regardless of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, neurodiversity or disability - whoever you are, if you’re curious, relentless and customer-obsessed, we want to hear from you.


Working From Home?

More and more, people are talking about going back to the workplace and the new normal. At Dojo, we’re thinking of it as a Better Normal. That means offering our Dojo-ers more choice and greater flexibility to work in a way that’s best for their particular job, their teams, and their roles.

We’re also aware there are times when working together in person is the best way to get things done. Our founders and executive team hold a fundamental belief that social connection creates innovation. We’re very proud of our incredible connective spaces, which have been designed with collaboration front of mind —and they're dog-friendly so you can bring your best friend! Our London office recently won gold for Interior Design at the London Design Awards and we’re looking forward to emulating that success in our new Bristol and Hull offices too. We expect our Dojo-ers to connect in their hubs (that’s what we call our offices). That said, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, so we expect all Dojo-ers and their teams will find the operating rhythm that works best for them.

If you’re wondering what it might be like for you at Dojo, our Talent Acquisition Team is happy to answer any questions.

Once you apply, your application will be reviewed by a committee of employees from different levels, teams, and experiences. We pride ourselves on fostering a sense of community, which is only made stronger by each individual at Dojo, so you'll have the opportunity to meet a variety of people throughout the process. Get excited!
