We are a tight-knit team of engineers and designers, coming from organizations such as Stripe, Square, Plaid, Coinbase, Robinhood, Affirm, Uber, and CERN, and are excited both about helping hundreds of thousands of small businesses grow and thrive, and building products that leaders at top companies have started to use every day.
