GoCardless Opens New York Workplace As International Workforce Expects To Develop Extra Than 60 P.c
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE) – GoCardless, a global fintech recurring payments company, announces the opening of an office in New York City as it seeks hiring to grow its global workforce by two-thirds. The New York office, led by Vice President of Banking Operations, Nanna Saito Nielsen, will act as the hub for strengthening and scaling the GoCardless payments infrastructure in the US.
The company will hire a team of compliance, regulatory and banking specialists in the coming months to expand payment partnerships, licenses and operational capabilities.
This announcement follows GoCardless’ launch in 2019 and subsequent success in expanding its customer base, which includes DocuSign and 8×8. The US will continue to be a core focus of GoCardless. Employee numbers will triple this year as the roles are filled both on the company’s east coast and in the San Francisco offices.
Saito Nielsen says, “The opening of our New York office signals the strength of our intentions in the US. After a successful start, we are now striving to create the best payment infrastructure for our customers by expanding our US partner network and offering local operational support. This will allow us to better serve businesses across the country as the adoption of digital payment methods continues to expand. ”
The GoCardless San Francisco office will continue to oversee market strategy and sales under Andrew Gilboy, general manager of North America.
In a broader sense, GoCardless has started a recruiting offensive that aims to increase the number of employees worldwide by two thirds by the end of 2021. This is being driven by the acceleration of the open banking strategy following the announcement of a $ 95 million fundraiser in December 2020. Hundreds The number of roles is now open in all teams worldwide.
The recruitment campaign is overseen by Eva Ducruezet, who was promoted to Chief People Officer in late 2020. Ducruezet has joined the GoCardless leadership team while maintaining her role as VP of Strategy and Business Operations.
Ducruezet says: “The scale of our recruitment is testament to the success we have seen in 2020 and the good prospects for the company, especially as Open Banking matures. We believe that the combination of the GoCardless payments network and open banking technology will bring unprecedented value to businesses and consumers. We are looking for the best talent for our high-performing team so that we can implement our strategy. With the global pandemic as a backdrop, we pride ourselves on contributing to job creation and economic growth in all of our markets. ”
GoCardless currently employs around 450 people worldwide with offices in London, Paris, Munich, Melbourne, San Francisco and New York City. Due to Covid-19, the workforce has shifted to remote work and will remain “remote first” until at least summer 2021, subject to local restrictions.
