Meet Tuza

Tuza is building an exchange for payment pricing to give businesses access to the most competitive rates for their payment terminals. Changing payment providers is broken: a cornershop turning over £300k a year could save £5k+ a year by changing payment provider, but they don’t.

For SMBs, it’s lengthy, lacks transparency, and often costly to switch. For providers, finding customers and helping them switch is manual and old-fashioned. It’s an industry crying out for change.

Tuza turns a week-long switching process into minutes, giving business owners their pick of the best rates from the likes of Worldpay, Barclaycard, and Natwest, saving them thousands of pounds a year in the process. All at zero cost for the business owner.

And the really exciting part? Later in 2024, we’re launching our own card machine. It’ll be the first card machine where you can change bank, without changing device. We’re bringing the unlocked phone-moment to card payments. With Tuza, you’ll never need to feel the pain of switching again.

We’ve raised £5.5m+ (shh not public yet) from exceptional fintech investors, including Northzone (original backers of Zettle, Trustpilot, Klarna) and Connect (first investor into Typeform, Citymapper). Angels are from Apple, Stripe, Visa, Wise etc.

Square, Sumup and Zettle have been hitting small businesses for years, but struggled to break into the 1m+ retailers who do £200k to £10m in annual card turnover. It’s this group that have been neglected by the banks, and we’re excited for you to help us transform their experience with payments.

We think you’d be an excellent…

Growth & Ops Intern on the team. We are looking for an intelligent self starter, willing to assist the commercial team to find opportunities to attract merchants to Tuza.

  • You will be looking after growth experiments from start to finish, such as identifying growth opportunities, designing their respective solutions (with our product and design function), and curating and running tests to check their effectiveness.

  • You will assist commercial team in running the day to day operations of certain functions within Tuza such as hiring, sales, marketing and more.

Who you are:

  • Intelligent and proactive self starter, able to take an idea and run with it.

  • You’ll be looking after growth experiments from start to finish: ideation/problem identification, designing the solution (with product and design) and executing the test to inform effectiveness etc.

  • You will also assist in some of our core ops, such as hiring, alongside our Head of Talent.

  • You should be able to play with data (SQL is a bonus) and present it beautifully (Figma is a bonus).

  • You’ll likely come from a top tier University or Business School, and have prior experience in a venture backed startup or VC. Perks if you’ve built something from 0-1 before.

  • Internships by their nature are quite disruptive, you should be people centric and able to communicate effectively.

What we offer:

  • This will be a paid internship, with the opportunity to join a fast growing startup with backing from Tier 1 European VCs.

  • There is the opportunity for this to evolve into a full-time position following completion of your MBA.

We’d love to discuss you joining the team.

We’ve been on the other side of the table: recruiters who waste your time, job offers that don’t materialise, and technical challenges that you don’t even get feedback on.

So here’s the process:

  1. Initial screening interview with Alex and Raph

  2. Take home case study

  3. In person final interview with Ed & Liv and meet the team

We’re looking forward to meeting you!
