Otta's take on GoCardless

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

GoCardless has emerged to facilitate recurring payments, with a focus on streamlining the subscription economy. After securing $75M in 2019 for international expansion, the company now operates in key regions, processing over $35B annually for 80,000 businesses.

Recent advancements include the acquisition of Nordigen in 2022, enabling GoCardless to leverage OpenBanking functionality and establish a robust platform for direct bank-to-bank payments. The company also achieved an impressive $312 million in Series G funding in 2022.With a strategic eye on the future, GoCardless introduced GC Embed, a white-labeling product granting other payment providers access to its premier bank payment platform.

This success is underscored by the company's commitment to innovation, exemplified by its 2019 partnership with TransferWise, integrating foreign exchange rates into its services. GoCardless continues to evolve, navigating the complex landscape of recurring payments and staying ahead of competitors like Stripe and Square, who are beginning to enter the subscription economy. With a global footprint spanning the UK, France, the US, and ANZ, GoCardless remains at the forefront of reshaping how businesses manage and process recurring payments on a massive scale.

Total funding - $529.3m

Lena Tailor (Director of D&I)

  • Given the large number of hires we have been making in recent months, we have continuously reviewed both our hiring processes and channels to eliminate bias. We’ve introduced programs that attract diverse talent and we continuously seek to create hiring experiences that are fair, transparent and accessible by all
  • We are working on creating a transparent framework for how we grow and develop talent in a scaling organisation. This will include bringing more clarity on internal career opportunities and provide clear expectations on the behaviours we want to see aligned to our values and commitment to building an inclusive organisation
  • We have introduced systematic processes to help ensure compensation decisions are data-driven, fair and competitive. We have also invested in Reward capability and expertise to ensure we bring pay equity into every step of the employee journey
  • Thanks to these employee-led groups we have been able to further our efforts in voluntary diversity data collection this year, to develop support for parents and carers, offer community mentoring opportunities in partnership with Career Accelerator, help to raise awareness and empathy during significant events of the past year, and importantly, offer more employees a community of people with whom they share experiences and interests
  • To strengthen our commitment to D&I we have recently appointed our first Director of Diversity & Inclusion, an experienced culture change leader, which will allow us to have a more strategic and systematic approach to building a diverse and inclusive organisation for the long term and as we scale
  • The Director will work with the executive team and ERGs to define clear D&I targets that GoCardless will commit to achieving over the next three years, and to develop a structured roadmap of initiatives aligned with those targets
  • This will create greater clarity and accountability across the entire organisation on D&I progress
  • We’ve got a long way to go, but here’s how we’re doing as of June 2022 - Female Employees - 46% - Ethnic background - 32% - Identify as LGBTQIA - 10% - Neurodivergent - 9%
