About the role

About Upflow

Getting paid on time represents a significant problem for B2B companies. Unlike consumer payments, where we've seen massive amounts of innovation in the form of companies like Venmo & Revolut, B2B payments remain archaic, with most of the work being done in spreadsheets and involving significant amounts of back and forth between different stakeholders.

These inefficiencies are extremely problematic for companies, so much so that some go bankrupt because of this - and COVID hasn't helped! We're on a mission to fix this, and bring delightful B2C experiences to B2B finance teams in the process.

We launched in 2018 and today are trusted by hundreds of amazing users across the EU & US including Lattice, Front, Triplebyte, Iziwork, ProductBoard, Proxyclick and more. We're also backed by leading investors (YCombinator, 9yards, eFounders) and top BAs from N26, Square, Mercury, Uber and Netsuite.
