A bit about us:

Consult Hyperion is a globally recognised, independent consultancy, providing thought leadership and expertise in the areas of payments, mobility and identity. We help clients solve problems, understand opportunities and future proof their ideas. Everything we deliver operates at scale – millions of transactions, all over the world.

Contactless payments? We were there from the start. In fact, we helped the payment brands develop their specifications and testing programs, and it was our team who helped TfL (Transport for London) deliver contactless payments on the underground.

Mobile banking? We’ve got a team of ethical hackers who ensure that day in, day out, our client’s apps are secure and stay ahead of the curve.

Who said identity is the new money? They weren’t wrong. Think about your wallet today, most of the contents are related to identity and proving you are who you say you are. We help governments all over the world, understand the technical and social challenges related to identity.

Not heard of us before? We’ve been around for 35 years and our values are what stand us apart. We’re curious, creative and collaborative experts. We have high integrity – we do the right thing for our clients, our team and our shareholders. We have a new Board who are driving the growth of the business for the next generation.

It’s interesting and varied. No two days are the same. And your colleagues are smart – we all love learning.

A snap-shot in time could see you helping clients explore;

  • Payments for the 21st Century, including EMV, open-banking, crypto-currencies, remote and alternative payment solutions
  • Smart ticketing to improve transit services, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) and Mobility-on-Demand (MoD) solutions
  • Digital Identity and rebuilding trust on the Internet

Strategy, technical advisory, software development and technical due diligence are just some of the value we’ve delivered to clients over recent months.

What you’ll bring:

We are on the hunt for smart, inquisitive people who live and breathe the payments, mobility and identity technologies that are transforming the financial sector. With a willingness for travel, you will be involved in projects supporting clients ranging from start-ups in the FinTech sector, to major global payment brands. Covering projects across the world with diverse multi disciplinary teams. You’ll be comfortable representing our team through social media outreach and blog writing. You’ll be a confident writer in your specialism and proficient at public speaking.

We believe in autonomy and we trust you to be on board with our values. We’re a high performing team. You’ll be client focused and relish customer success. You’ll understand how to manage your client stakeholders, when to escalate and seek support. You’ll be a great communicator and a team player.
