Taekus is a fintech startup building the traveler’s dream credit card – and we’re doing that by creating a new points infrastructure – a feat that involves both cutting-edge technology and bold new partnerships.
It all began in 2019 when two avid travelers stumbled upon the strange world of credit cards and airline miles, learning how to book $24,000 first-class airline tickets for $1400 worth of points. We realized we could integrate our knowledge into a credit card with smart points that did the work for you — so anyone can travel more without needing to become a points-obsessed enthusiast.
Here we are now — tackling a multi-trillion-dollar opportunity to push the first real innovation in the true super-premium market since the inception of rewards credit cards.
We're always looking for talented humans who are interested in pioneering this new era of credit card rewards.
We’re profitable 4 months after launching our private alpha product. In 2022, our customers are running hundreds of millions of dollars in transaction volume — and we’re still growing fast every month.
To get here, we’ve wrangled partnerships with Visa, multiple banks, and international airlines. We’ve raised a seed round from various angels, including The Points Guy himself.
We are now 5 teammates strong and looking for our next team members. The startup is about to get really hectic really fast, and we're looking for an additional teammate to join us on this adventure.
As Taekus’s banking-back-end-focused engineer, you will be responsible for making sure Taekus’s financial-related operations run smoothly, from our ACHs to credit card transactions.
We care deeply about the reliability and usability of our platform -- that’s one of the key ways we stand out against the bigger banks with travel rewards.
We want to deliver a travel rewards credit card experience that is fitting for the premium market and what they expect. Because cardholder trust is so important in this industry, we believe that making sure the financial backend workings of our product is extremely critical and important to our business.
