About us

The last ten years has seen an explosion of growth in businesses with recurring revenue - think companies like Spotify and Netflix or Dropbox and Microsoft Office 365. The world is moving to one where products are used and paid for on a recurring basis, not purchased upfront. But in that time, innovation in the recurring payments space has been limited. As a result, payments for these companies are broken. GoCardless has fixed this by building a new global platform for recurring payments based on collecting funds directly from bank accounts, avoiding the need for intermediaries like card networks and digital wallets.

We now power recurring payments from companies such as DocuSign, Bulb and Nutmeg as well as tens of thousands of small businesses around the world, whilst enabling software partners including Xero, Zuora and Salesforce to help their own customers collect their own payments.

We’ve raised over $120m in funding from incredible investors such as Google and Salesforce, have over 50,000 customers and five offices globally.

As our business grows, so does our team, and the People team is at the heart of the company culture. Our aim is to provide comprehensive and innovative rewards programmes that allow our employees to focus on the exciting challenges that life at GoCardless presents.
