We’re on a mission to make online payments simple for merchants by taking away the complexity from payment methods and offering a simple, but ‘powerful’ API.

Mollie processes payments for more than 130,000 merchant clients with local payment methods such as Mastercard, VISA, Amex, PayPal, iDEAL, Bancontact, Bitcoin, SEPA Direct Debit, Klarna, Cartes, Bancaires, ESP, Giropay, SOFORT Banking, and more.

We’re well-known in the Benelux market and rapidly expanding to the rest of Europe. For this, we need amazing platforms, security and infrastructure that enable our product engineering teams to move quickly and safely.
