Job Description


About SumUp

We are the leading mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) company in Europe. We started out 5 years ago and built our payment service from scratch to shake up the industry and wake up the entrepreneur within anyone. We created a unique device that allows small business owners to accept card payments anywhere with the smartphone in their pocket. Whether our merchants are brewing coffee or fixing cars, we want to make technology that anyone can use - so our merchants can get on with what they do best. From our paperless onboarding to taking the first payment, we make it easy. Traditional offerings leave out small businesses, we don’t. We are open and honest about our pricing and have no hidden fees.

Launched in August 2012, our company enjoys impressive global reach and has since expanded into 16 countries, including Germany, the U.S. and Brazil. SumUp continues to grow and is backed by American Express, BBVA, Groupon, Holtzbrinck Ventures and other renowned venture capital investors.

Today, hundreds of thousands of small businesses in 16 countries around the world rely on SumUp to get paid. Beyond our original hardware, mobile and web apps, we have gone on to develop a suite of APIs and SDKs for integrating SumUp payment into other apps and services.

Why work with us?

We do things differently. We build our own payment solution end-to-end so that we can always offer the best value and service. We know how vital payment is to small business, so we use our technology to solve their problems. We believe in open and transparent communication, not strict rules and hierarchies. We are a team of hardworking, talented people with one goal: to build a better way to get paid. We’ve got some huge challenges ahead of us, and we need smart, creative people to innovate and disrupt the payment industry. If you think you’ve got what it takes - join us!
