What do we do?

That means we take away 100% of the pain of payment fragmentation. It’s faster, safer, cheaper, and, above all, way better.

We’re backed by investors including KKR, FTV Capital, Kindred, Notion, and 83North and serve over 3000 software sellers in 245 territories globally.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in UI/UX design, a deep understanding of developer needs, and a passion for taking complex concepts and making them feel simple.
