At GoCardless, we’re passionate about payments. Our vision is to provide businesses with the best way to collect recurring payments, wherever they and their customers are in the world.
Today, we help over 60,000 businesses take the pain out of getting paid, so they can focus on what they do best. And through our partnerships with over 200 software providers such as Xero, Zuora, Salesforce and Quickbooks, more and more businesses are benefiting from our unique global payments platform every day. We process $15bn of payments a year across more than 30 countries, powering recurring payments for businesses worldwide, from multinational corporations to small businesses.
We’re headquartered in the UK, and backed by some of the world’s leading investors including Google Ventures, Salesforce Ventures, Balderton Capital, Accel Partners, Notion Capital and Bain Capital. Over 500 employees worldwide have decided to develop their careers with us. We’ve built a friendly, collaborative culture where we hire and develop people who share our desire to do work we can be proud of. We value learning and feedback, and support colleagues to develop in their role and more broadly in their career.
Diversity at GoCardless
Diversity is hugely important to us, at GoCardless we believe that in order to build a more diverse and inclusive workplace, where everyone can be their full self, we need to create an environment where everyone’s voice is heard and there is a sense of belonging. We’re committed to building a more diverse team and you can read more about our commitment here.
We also have active ‘employee resource groups’ (such a BEAM and Pride) 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.
In particular our Pride Group, founded in 2019, aims to ensure our LGBTI+ colleagues feel represented and empowered to be themselves at GoCardless. We support the D&I programme by encouraging the awareness and celebration, community involvement and education of GoCardless’ LGBT+ community. We do this by facilitating open discussions, creating safe spaces for people to explore and learn, and organising opportunities to play a wider role beyond GoCardless by volunteering at events like Pride and giving back to the community.
Working at GoCardless
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.
Here at GoCardless we value flexibility, and throughout the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic we've listened to our global GeeCees to gain a better understanding of the positives and negatives of working remotely (which we've been doing since March 2020).
Their feedback helped us develop our 'Adaptive Working' model, rolling out mid to late 2021. It's built around three components: days in the office, remote working, and enhanced environments. This means teams will be able to come into a GC office between one and three days per week for collaboration and teamwork, with the rest spent working remotely to enable a healthy work/life balance. We’ll also be reimagining our office environments so they enhance the collaboration and socialisation aspects our GeeCees told us they value most highly.
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.
Act with Integrity
We do what’s right even when no-one is watching. We don't see doing the right things as choice — we act with integrity regardless of the cost.
Take Pride to Care Deeply
We care deeply about our impact on the world and those around us. We focus on results whilst paying attention to the details, and always strive to master our craft.
We act without ego and don’t let excuses get in the way of achieving our goals. We believe life's too short for self-importance.
