Company Overview

Circle is a global social payments company focused on transforming the world economy with secure, simple, and less costly technology for storing and using money. Circle is backed by $136 million from investors including Goldman Sachs, IDG China, Breyer Capital, Accel, General Catalyst, Baidu, CreditEase, and CICC. We're building mobile apps aimed at enabling greater ease-of-use in online and in-person payments, with enhanced security and privacy, and the convenience of free, instant, global digital money transfers.

We’re full of passionate people with huge brains and small egos who are totally devoted to an app that’s changing the way money moves, here and abroad. We're a collaborative group working across teams in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dublin and Beijing. 

 

BUILDING SOMETHING BIG
We’re more than a payment app. We’re changing the global economy with secure, simple technology that costs less. Our passion is to make sending money as open and easy as sending anything else digitally.
NAME DROPPING
We were founded in 2013 by serial internet entrepreneurs Jeremy Allaire and Sean Neville. Some of the most impressive names in the industry believe in us (to the tune of $136 million and counting): Goldman Sachs, IDG Capital Partners, Breyer Capital, Accel Partners, General Catalyst Partners, Baidu, CICC Alpha, EverBright, WangXiang and CreditEase.
EXPANDING THE CIRCLE
We like folks who are excited about the potential of digital currency technology. Who are curious. Who are up for a challenge and want to be part of a team — and make a true difference within it.
LURING YOU IN
Like the sound of unlimited paid time off, flexible hours, paid lunches and unlimited happy hours? These unbeatable perks are the cherry on top of standard medical and dental insurance, 401K, mobile phone benefits and commuter discounts. (Let’s be honest, they’re the rainbow sprinkles, too.)
