Mollie briefly explained

Mollie is one of Europe’s fastest growing fintech companies. We provide a simple and robust payment API, that enables webshop and app builders to implement fifteen different payment methods in one go.

Tinkering, disruption, and inclusivity are Mollie core values. In the first few years of existence, Mollie was a developer-only endeavour, and 14 years later devs and techs still comprise roughly 40% of all staff. As a natural consequence, a lot of things that enterprise businesses or pretend-to-be startups are trying hard to mimic, come quite natural to Mollie.

Obviously you get to pick whatever tools you will use to get the job done. MacBooks, absurdly large or many screens, top-notch noise-cancelling headphones and whatever other equipment makes your literary boat float. We go to great lengths to create a space that allows you to focus on the things that will make you happy: writing great copy for the products you helped dream up and build.

We don’t have nine-to-five mentality, but we will give you problems and trust that you will create outstanding solutions. You'll spend 7,5 hours working and get free lunch every day. We believe in sane working hours and long-term solutions, instead of 60-hour work weeks with temporary workarounds.
