What we do matters
Azimo makes a difference to people’s lives. For more than a century, money transfer was owned by a group of self-interested companies that charged exorbitant fees and put profits over people. We’re smashing that model and using technology to hand control back to the people who need our service most. That’s a pretty great reason to go to work in the morning.
We’re empowered to do our jobs
Anyone who has worked at a big corporation knows that 90% of the job is politics and bulls**t. People guard their little corner of the business with the aggression of a maternal gorilla, yet simultaneously cut corners, blame others for their mistakes and then head home on the stroke of 5pm. At Azimo we listen to each other and we make the best of everyone’s talents. Big egos and the blame game aren’t tolerated – because none of us is as smart as all of us.
We have an incredible team
The people here are truly amazing. When we hire, we’re not just looking for a great talent in their field (though we’re totally looking for that too) – we’re looking for someone who fits. We’re looking for empathy, kindness, a generous spirit and a sense of humour. We want to work with people who care and have a constant desire to learn and improve. We’re also looking for someone who we can learn from. Does that sound like you?
We have a great office
While you shouldn’t join a company for the perks, ours are pretty awesome. As well as a bar stocked with great beer, gin and wine, we have a comfortable office set across three floors and a roof terrace in the heart of Islington, and a takeout lunch every Thursday. Oh, yeah, and the office also has beanbags, table football and a ping pong table. Does that tick off most of the tech startup clichés? At least nobody here drinks Soylent…
Our office mascot is an awesome dog
Seriously. He’s got his own Slack emoji and everything. You have to meet Mr Binks.
We have two offices, in London and Krakow, and we currently employ around 90 people in everything from customer services to product design. Oh and we’re a team that’s cosmopolitan, tech-savvy, open-minded and willing to climb the mountains and swim the oceans. Unless it’s raining. Sound tempting?
