Company and the Role:

The Wolfe Companies, LLC, a leader in the Gift Card and FinTech sectors, is known for its prominent brands such as PerfectGift, Gift Card Granny, GiftYa, Reaf Marketing, and Give InKind. Our company excels in delivering exceptional value and customer experience in our industry. You'll find detailed information about our company culture, values, and the recognition we've earned in our industry at the top page of our career site.

Our current production capacity is approximately 10,000,000 Visa/Mastercard's gift cards per year, and we are at about 35% capacity. With our continuous growth, the volume of cards we produce has increased by over 50% compared to last year.
