Primer is solving the biggest problem in payments
The last two decades have seen an explosion in new payment services to support new ways to pay around the world – from digital wallets, mobile payments, and open banking, to Buy Now Pay Later and crypto. Great for consumers! But, incredibly complex for merchants and developers. That’s where Primer comes in.
Primer is the world’s first automation platform for payments. With Primer, merchants and developers have all the underlying infrastructure and “lego blocks” they need to build the best buying experiences for their customers.
We’re also creating an all-new open distribution channel for payment services to reach new merchants. Any developer can build a connection on Primer; merchants then simply ‘click and connect’ to the services they need to build their desired payment flows within their Primer dashboard.
We have an all-star global team from across the world of payments and fintech – ex Braintree-PayPal, Stripe, Checkout, Tink, Recurly, TrueLayer, Paddle, Plaid, Kount, and more.
Since starting in January 2020, we’ve raised from top tier investors including Accel, Balderton and Iconiq, to enable us to solve the biggest problem in payments.
The way we work is different at Primer
Our culture is about removing the roadblocks to doing your best work. We can focus on taking initiative, letting the best ideas win, and valuing output over anything else. We celebrate progress (with tacos, goats, and more that you’ll learn while you speak to us!). And we’ve had a lot to celebrate!
Underpinning all of this is our ‘trust by default’. You’ll work remotely, wherever works best for you, have unlimited coworking access, unlimited time off, no company spending approvals, regular whole company retreats, team workations, and open access to people across the company.
We find the best thinking and work come from removing limiting assumptions. So, one of our favourite approaches to solving problems is simply:
