    Being authentic is our baseline

    Mollie is one of Europe’s fastest-growing fintech companies. We provide a simple and clear payment API, which enables webshop and app builders to implement more than ten different payment methods in one go.

    In the first few years of existence, Mollie was a developer-only adventure, and about 15 years later devs and techs still comprise roughly 45% of all staff. As a natural consequence, Mollie still is—and aims to be—highly tech-minded.

    This focus on the technical side can be found in various things. Like, you pick whatever tools you want to use to get the job done. MacBooks, absurdly large or many screens, top-notch noise-cancelling headphones and whatever other equipment makes your nerd-boat float. We go to great lengths to create a space that allows you to focus on the things that will make you happy: shipping great features you helped dream up and build.

    We don’t have code monkeys, but we do give you a problem and trust that you will create an outstanding solution. We believe in sane working hours and long-term solutions, instead of 70-hour work weeks with temporary workarounds.
