We are Banked:

We’re building a global, digital payments network, based on API access to highly secure banking rails, but free from the limitations of their decades old technology and cost model to support it. 

Payments have so far missed out on the cost benefits that come from scale and the innovation potential of the digitisation of all other areas of our lives. With deep partnerships across the ecosystem we’re making real-time payments work for a digital world. We believe moving money + data together is an untapped source of innovation, and will change not only the way we buy things, but the way we live with more useful and relevant experiences. We believe it's what makes us different from other payment providers.

We’ve recently raised our Series A funding for the next phase of our company roadmap, so we’re expanding the engineering team to meet the coming, new challenges.
