About SumUp

We are the leading mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) company in Europe, with major offices in Berlin, Sofia, and São Paulo comprising more than 800 people.

We created a unique device that pairs with the smartphone in your pocket, allowing small merchants to accept card payments anywhere. Beyond our original hardware, mobile and web apps, we have gone on to develop a suite of APIs and SDKs for integrating SumUp payments into other apps and services. We recently launched a brand new contactless device, which makes paying by card easier than ever before.

Today, hundreds of thousands of small businesses in 30 countries around the world rely on SumUp to get paid. But we won’t stop there. By the end of the year SumUp will double its number of markets, remaining the mPOS player operating in the greatest number of countries worldwide.

We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better products for our merchants. If you think you've got what it takes to disrupt the payments industry — join us.
