Help Create the

Next-Gen Payments Platform

Similarly, we aim to expose access to capabilities, tools, and revenue enhancements that are typically restricted to the top players. It's time for a new name to emerge in payments.

We're a distributed team looking for people who enjoy and thrive in a remote team environment. Hours are flexible and we follow an agile methodology for product development. We're avid technologists that thrive on creativity, new ideas, and solving hard problems. Creativity and experimentation are at the core of our culture and we take a culture first, resume second approach to building teams.
