Adyen was founded in 2006 by a group of entrepreneurs, including Pieter van der Does and Arnout Schuijff. The existing payments technology consisted of a patchwork of systems built on outdated infrastructure. With the aim of helping businesses grow, the co-founders set out to build a platform capable of meeting the rapidly evolving needs of today's fast-growing global businesses.
Adyen's founding team called the business Adyen – Surinamese for "Start over again" – and focused on building a modern infrastructure directly connected to card networks and local payment methods across the world, allowing for unified commerce. The Adyen platform enables businesses to accept payments, protect revenue, and control their finances in a single system.
We took an 'unobvious' approach to helping businesses solve their payments challenges. From there, we evolved into the financial technology platform of choice for the world's leading companies. To maintain our momentum, we need people to join us in finding new ways of solving our unique challenges - people like you.
As a leading FinTech company, it is our ambition to drive change in our industry and increase gender representation. We believe that by participating in global initiatives like Women in Technology World Series Online Festival (use the official tag), permanent change in gender leadership & representation in tech is within our reach.
