This is Adyen

Adyen is the payments platform of choice for the world's leading companies, delivering frictionless payments across online, mobile, and in-store channels. Our team members are motivated individuals that help each other do remarkable things every day. We face unique technical challenges at scale and we solve those as a team. And together, we deliver innovative and ethical solutions that transform the way the world pays.

We believe that building an ethical business isn’t optional, and in thinking of how we can improve our own social responsibility, we wondered how vast an impact we could have together with our merchants. We decided to focus on what we’re good at, creating seamless experiences for shoppers — now, with an impact perspective. All of our Impact products are built with Adyen’s core mission to help merchants meet their business, and now social and environmental, goals. 

We took an unobvious approach to starting a payments company, building a platform from scratch. Now, Adyen serves the world's brightest companies like Facebook, Uber, L'Oreal, Casper, Bonobos, and Spotify. We continue to serve our merchants and meet their growing needs/expectations to grow beyond payment acceptance, and contribute to the long-term prosperity of people and the planet.

Our engineers are reshaping the payments landscape. We’re looking for more talented problem solvers to help us address a unique set of challenges.

Impact Stream

Within the Impact stream, we build functionalities to seamlessly position our merchants and their shoppers to do good. We can deliver on this promise by building products that are straightforward to implement, do not interfere with business operations and ensure processing costs do not take away from the end goal - to generate funds for good causes. We are not seeking margin when it comes to our Impact products, we are committing and investing in a strong infrastructure that will help our merchants generate funds for charities and climate action projects that are close to their brand and strategy. 

By leveraging our existing technology, we built Giving, a checkout product feature that enables shoppers to donate to the merchants’ charity of choice with one click. Through this feature, we are able to facilitate our merchants’ shoppers’ desires to do good, and create additional revenue streams for charities. We also launched Restore, a product feature that enables our merchants’ shoppers to carbon compensate at checkout.

Going forward, we 

  • Continue to scope new product features and build the best and seamless impact solutions - building on Adyen`s industry leading payment engine
  • Build and provide tangible insights to our merchants and charities around new unlocked income streams
  • Lead by example when it comes to charity onboarding - not sacrificing due diligence when creating more speed/scale
