Just a couple of months after securing $95 million through its Series F funding round, UK-based payments platform GoCardless has announced the opening of its New York City office. According to GoCardless, the new office will be led by Nanna Saito Nielsen, VP of Banking Operations, and will act as the hub for strengthening and scaling the GoCardless payment infrastructure in the U.S.
While sharing more details about the office, Saito Nielsen stated:
“The opening of our New York office signals the strength of our intent in the US. Following a successful start, we are now dedicated to creating the best payment infrastructure for our clients by expanding our US partner network and offering local operational support. This will enable us to better serve businesses across the country as the adoption of digital payment methods continues to accelerate.”
GoCardless further revealed that its San Francisco office will continue to cover in-market strategy and sales under Andrew Gilboy, General Manager of North America. GoCardless currently employs approximately 450 people worldwide, with offices in London, Paris, Munich, Melbourne, San Francisco and New York City
Founded in 2011, GoCardless is on a mission to take the pain out of getting paid for businesses with recurring revenue.
“We’ve created a global bank debit network, to rival credit and debit cards. On top of it, we’ve built a platform designed and optimised for taking invoice, subscription, membership and installment payments.”
GoCardless also noted that it has processed $13 billion in transactions a year and supports more than 55,000 businesses worldwide.
