Venmo is widely considered the go-to virtual payment app of the day. The app has engrained itself into our daily lives as a useful tool for everything from paying back a friend for pizza to running a small DIY business. Founded in 2009, Venmo has become a leader in personal finance, offering social payment platforms as well as the Venmo Mastercard Debit Card and new business options.
Acquired by PayPal in 2013, Venmo now has the capability to turn its innovative social payment platform into an even larger scale operation. In 2020, Venmo general manager Darrell Esch said, “The goal is to move beyond being an app for payment between friends [and turn Venmo into a] really ubiquitous digital wallet that lets consumers spend and pay.” With its new owner, Venmo participates in forums and conferences across the globe as a leading innovator in personal finance. Recent global conferences it has attended include the Bank of America Electronic Payments Symposium and the Wolfe FinTech Forum.
Venmo’s company culture is highly innovative and fast-paced but doesn’t sacrifice inclusivity or fairness in the workplace. The company aims to foster a safe, inclusive work environment so that employees can focus on creating the new ideas and solutions that have been a hallmark of Venmo’s success since its beginnings. Venmo’s commitment to diversity and inclusion makes it a wonderful workplace. From gender-neutral restrooms to wheel-chair accessible offices, Venmo works to create a space that everyone can feel welcome in. The company wants employees to bring their unique ideas and perspectives as members of its community. “It makes us stronger,” according to Venmo, “and it helps us deliver the best possible experience for our users.”
