Highlights

India’s first numberless card Are numbers really required on the card when transacting offline? 🤔 With FamCard’s sleek, black, and numberless design, it not only matches the GenZ's aesthetic style and resonates with their vibe, but also takes security to a whole new level.

FamCard has a special feature called “Flash PIN”, which is dynamic and is generated for every transaction. Teens can just flash this PIN to the cashier without the need of entering the PIN by themselves, allowing for true contactless payments amidst COVID-19. For issuing cards, we have partnered with IDFC Bank. While users get a virtual card instantly on signing up, the physical cards can be ordered through the app.

Everything UPI without a bank account 100M+ adults are paying through UPI, but 250M+ teens are not because they don’t have a bank account. They’ve smartphones, they’re using the internet, they’re tech-savvy, but still, they don’t have access to it because most of them don’t have bank accounts. Well, it changes now! With FamPay, for the first time in India, teens can now get their own personalised UPI ID, without having a bank account! Can you believe this? Such a tech-savvy audience was not on UPI.

Customer Love The app has 500k+ downloads and a lot of users who love FamPay with 4.6+ on PlayStore (25k+ reviews).

Come join us on this exciting rocketship journey of innovation and creating impact.

Technology

Built entirely on Python/ Django with 3 microservices and Native iOS and Android. We are looking for builders of the 1st order. The ones who get a rush from creating things from scratch and take pleasure in watching users try to tear it apart through sheer volume and strange, unthinkable use cases. And when it breaks, they cannot sleep without finding that pesky little condition in some forgotten corner. Let's get on the ship together?
