Adyen

Amsterdam, Netherlands

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 The existing payments technology consisted of a patchwork of systems built on outdated infrastructure.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.

Adyen is the payments platform of choice for the world’s leading companies, delivering frictionless payments across online, mobile, and in-store channels. Our team members are motivated individuals that help each other do remarkable things every day. We face unique technical challenges at scale and we solve those as a team. And together, we deliver innovative and ethical solutions that transform the way the world pays.

We took an unobvious approach to starting a payments company, building a platform from scratch. Now, Adyen serves the world’s brightest companies like Facebook, Uber, L’Oreal, Casper, Bonobos, and Spotify.

Why we are partner with Unicorns in Tech

At Adyen, we know how important it is for every individual to know they belong and feel that their beliefs and identity are represented in their work environment. Our goal is to help Unicorns in Tech’s mission create a culture of diverse and inclusive in corporate environments. We believe the best way to accomplish the goal is to lead by example and using our global network to increase Unicorns in Tech’s exposure.

 

LGBTIQ+ friendly policies

Our primary focus and goal is to create a safe environment where all can be heard and seen. An environment where you can be your authentic self. As LGBTQ+ goes beyond Adyen, we also want to use our voice and resources to support the community with global and local partnerships and charities to make a meaningful difference. We provide a copious amount of resources such as ERGs, Gender-Inclusive Bathrooms, Global Pride Event, Educational Resources, and more.
