Sales & Business Development
Posted on Friday, June 16, 2023

Our mission is to make payments safer and easier for everyone. We started with a consumer product ( that helps people spend more safely using virtual payment cards. Then we launched a simple, modern API to make our payment and card issuing infrastructure available to other startups, fintechs, and brands. Today, that infrastructure is known as Lithic, and it powers billions of dollars in payments for some of the most innovative companies in the world.

Lithic is a remote-first company and has a distributed team with an office in New York. That means that if you want to work remotely, you can! If you want to drop by the office or work fully in-person, you can do that, too! We’ve raised $100M+ from top-tier investors including Index, Bessemer, Stripes, and Tusk Venture Partners, with a recent Series C that will help us scale.

We’re now looking for a sales leader to help us scale upmarket and drive the rapid acceleration of product adoption, build and develop a world-class enterprise sales team, meet customer and revenue targets, and continue to build on the Lithic brand. We are looking for a leader who can help scale an industry-changing company with passion, humility, drive, maturity, and impeccable business acumen. Our Head of Sales will sit on our leadership team and will initially report to the CEO.
