Careers

We Are Payaut

We are a rapidly expanding fintech startup based in Amsterdam. We offer a flexible payment solution for leading marketplaces and platforms. We live the entrepreneurial, startup life as we place our clients at the very heart of everything we do, while bringing a sense of enjoyment to our work. And we are not alone. We are backed by top VC funds LocalGlobe (Robinhood, Transferwise, Kazoo), Entrée (Kazoo, Gusto, Monday) and Finch Capital (Hiber, Fixico). 

At Payaut, we help marketplaces grow their business by taking over the complex and time-consuming process of:

  1. Consumer onboarding while verifying them through Know-Your-Customer checks; 
  2. Automating all incoming payments to ensure compliance under PSD2 regulations; 
  3. Paying out the platform plus its own sellers. 

We offer a challenging startup environment. We believe that being part of Payaut and building the next fintech company from the ground up, is a great opportunity to bring your career to the next level.
