Due to the sensitive nature of what Spreedly does - handling payment data - finalist candidates must complete a successful background and reference check.
At this time Spreedly is unable to provide sponsorship for employment, and we are not set up to support remote employees who reside in California or New York. In order to be considered for employment, applicants must be currently legally authorized to work in the job location country and not require future sponsorship in order to continue working in that country.
