About Us

We’re working to improve the lives of the international poor by connecting them to global payment networks. To do so, we build technology that makes it easy for organizations to pay and be paid by anyone, anytime, anywhere in the emerging markets.

Our platform is already being used to facilitate payments across Africa and Asia in some of the most challenging environments and worst humanitarian crises in the world -- from the ebola crisis in Liberia to refugee populations in Niger and Nigeria. These programs alone represent hundreds of billions of spend with nearly 1B recipients. And this is just the beginning:  agriculture firms need to pay farmers, gig economy firms pay their workers and micro-lending companies provide loans.  Just imagine the potential impact - direct and indirect - of building the rails to connect the 2.5B unbanked to modern enterprises around the world.

It’s an ambitious goal for a small-ish, venture-backed NY/London-based team.  We’re looking to hire exceptional people who are excited by the mission, share our values and are pretty fun to be around. We have competitive salary and stock options, flexible hours, unlimited vacation, and great medical, dental, and vision benefits.
