About Us  

Our Customer was founded on the principles of breaking down the intimidating barriers around financial  transactions to make them intuitive, friendly, and even fun. And it worked: people love sending money  with Our Customer app, and we’re growing by leaps and bounds!  

But we’re only just getting started. We want to take that magic of sending money with Our Customer application and  cascade it into every place where people use money. That means connecting people to their money in  the most intuitive and fun way possible, then connecting people with each other. Users already love  Our Customer app, but we know there are lots of things we haven’t thought of to make the experience of using  Our Customer app even more delightful and valuable. All that’s going to take a lot of figuring out. Let’s figure it out  together!  

Engineering at Our Customer  

At Our Customer, we are creating a product that people love. We strive to create a delightful user experience  while connecting the world and empowering people through payments. We are looking for intellectually  curious people who want to be inspired and inspire others to change the world.  

Engineering is a craft, and at Our Customer we want the internals of our software to be as elegant as the end  user experience we are designing. We spend our days scaling our infrastructure and building new  features to meet and exceed our users’ needs and wants. We work with a product team that is data driven and human-centered in its design principles. We teach and learn from one another, and push  each other to be at our creative and analytical bests.
