Embracing the journey

At SumUp, we’re committed to building a culture where we can share, learn, and thrive in a safe and nurturing space. We believe we can make a positive impact for our SumUppers, as well as for the sustainability of our planet as a whole. We’re not perfect and there’s still work to do, but we’re embracing this rewarding journey together.


Differences make us unique and strong. Our idea of an inclusive workplace is one where differences are celebrated and people are empowered to be themselves. Driven by our values, we strive to create a culture where everyone can feel safe, supported and progress – no matter how they identify. 


We support the needs of SumUppers by promoting self-care habits and healthy boundaries. We encourage everyone to embrace work-life models that allow them to nurture their mental wellbeing as a priority. By creating a connected community through education and safe spaces our goal is to build an environment where SumUppers are healthy and fulfilled.


We believe in creating a better world, not only for our merchants, but for the people on our planet. To drive change, we're investing in three pillars: environment, education, and entrepreneurship – with a dedicated focus on sustainable solutions and making positive change for minoritised groups.

“We need to challenge each other and reflect on our own behaviours in order to have an impact at SumUp and in our world.”

– Felizitas, Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion
