At SumUp, we are driven to empower small businesses across the globe by de-hassling their lives and helping them to succeed. Our vision as a global FinTech company is to build the first-ever global card acceptance brand, and we are well on our way as small businesses in over 31 countries around the world rely on SumUp to get paid. To get there, we are putting together an awesome team that is committed to one another and to our merchants. You could be our missing link! Help us bring card acceptance to the masses!

On top of card acceptance, SumUp just raised near BRL 1.5 billion in our latest investment round. We are now centered on creating new and comprehensive financial services from scratch, focused on changing the lives of more than 40 million low income, unbanked brazilians. 

Our team of 16 designers is split into two general departments covering Product and Brand design. Product Designers work in collocated cross-functional teams with designers situated in Berlin, Sofia and São Paulo producing solutions for native mobile, web and our bespoke hardware. Recently, we spent some time developing our Design System; Circuit UI and redesigning our primary mobile app on iOS, as well as a bunch of other product features and improvements.

We pride ourselves on our close collaboration, transparency, fun-loving nature & most importantly; placing our merchant-base of over 1 million global business owners (36+ languages) at the heart of each and every decision we make.
