THE SUMUP PAYMENTS TRIBE

Collocated almost entirely in Sofia, the Payments Tribe is at the core of SumUp’s business, from the merchant’s first user experience signing up in our app, to making their first sale, to getting their first payout to their bank account. Each of the Squads in the Tribe focuses on making that experience seamless, intuitive, and hassle-free, so our users can get on with their business and not worry about devices, apps, or indeed their money.

We are looking for an Agile Coach to support our squads in becoming increasingly more agile and help them deliver value to our merchants early and often.
