Who we are

GoCardless is growing fast and we’re looking for the best designers out there to help build our brand.

With the world embracing digital payments, we believe we are in the perfect position to take our business and our merchants to the next level.

In just over ten years, we’ve grown from a start-up to a thriving scale-up, processing more than $20bn a year, for over 55,000 businesses in more than 30 countries.

Our API powers recurring payments for companies like Twitch, TripAdvisor, The Guardian, Bulb and the UK Government. It also enables partners like Xero and Quickbooks to help save time for small businesses.

With our fully realised global network, growing suite of intelligence products, and our Open Banking ambitions, the future promises to be challenging, exciting, and full of opportunities.

Join our team and help redefine payments.

  • Life at GoCardless

    Diversity is hugely important to us and we welcome applications from those with disabilities and from under-represented backgrounds.

    Throughout our hiring and onboarding process we make any reasonable adjustments necessary to create a level playing field and continually look at how we can improve in this area.

  • We also have active employee resource groups’ (such a BEAM and Rainbow) that are supported and sponsored by members of our Exec team;
  • they work to engage and inspire our employees on diversity & inclusion topics throughout the year.

    We offer flexible working hours and remote working arrangements, enhanced parental leave and pension packages. You’ll also receive equity, because we believe having this buy in’ is a vital part of building a successful business where everybody - regardless of their role - can make a valuable contribution.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has seen everybody at GoCardless shift to remote working and this is something we’ll continue to do into 2021.

    We continually review this approach in conjunction with the changing restrictions in each of our locations; additionally we offer support to maintain wellbeing and comfort, including subsidised home office equipment, workstation assessments and a range of remote social activities you can dip in and out of whenever you fancy.
