Front-End Engineer Lead - Relay Financial

Who Is Relay & How Are They Changing the World?


Relay was founded in October of 2018 by Paul Klicnik and Yoseph West.


They have spent their career working with small businesses and believe that banking should be a growth enabler.


The Story, Mission and Values:

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and banking, if built with them in mind, can be core to their success. For too long, small business has been an afterthought for the big banks.


Automating financial management for small business

Banking is the nerve center of small business and yet, it has long been a tax on small business. We’re building banking that automates financial management and helps small business owners get back to doing what they love!


Financial Institution

Partnered with Evolve Bank & Trust

We’ve partnered with Evolve Bank & Trust; Member FDIC. They’ve been around since 1925 and provide our financial infrastructure. It’s through this partnership that we’re able to offer FDIC insured bank accounts.



Customer service is everything

We believe that business is personal. That’s why it’s our goal to deliver world-class customer service alongside world-class technology. Ping us anytime - we’ll jump on a call, screenshare, etc. and help!



Working with world-class investors

We’re big on people and vision. And, we’re lucky to work with great investors who believe in the small business ecosystem and the important role banking plays in it!


Simply put, we believe in empowering small business
