Let’s make passion pay We started from one belief : that businesses deserved better. That people pouring their hearts into their passion should be paid reliably, efficiently and affordably.

After all, passion, not money makes the world go round. So we decided to shake up the payments industry for good. From humble beginnings, we’ve become one of Europe’s fastest-growing FinTech companies, winning numerous awards (including the Tech Track 100, National Business Awards and the Europe-wide Inc 5000).

We pride ourselves on using smart technology and an unswerving dedication to service, leaving customers free to grow their companies.

After all, doing so is hard work - taking payments shouldn’t be. To continue innovating and leading the payments industry, we need exceptional individuals.

Our success is due to our talented teams going above and beyond to make payments painless, security simple and compliance easy for our customers.

Our core values of Brave, Defiant, Supportive and Honest underpin everything we do. As employees you are given the freedom to work autonomously, challenge the norm, bring new ideas and take ownership.
