Enterprise Account Executive, Platforms
This is Adyen
Adyen provides payments, data, and financial products in a single solution for customers like Meta, Uber, H&M, and Microsoft - making us the financial technology platform of choice. At Adyen, everything we do is engineered for ambition.
For our teams, we create an environment with opportunities for our people to succeed, backed by the culture and support to ensure they are enabled to truly own their careers. We are motivated individuals who tackle unique technical challenges at scale and solve them as a team. Together, we deliver innovative and ethical solutions that help businesses achieve their ambitions faster.
As Adyen continues to expand in North America, we are looking for experienced Account Executives to join our sales team focused on our Platforms customers such as Lightspeed, Zenoti, Oracle and Wix.
Adyen has a clear competitive advantage in the platform due to our Adyen banking licenses, offering a truly global solution and being built on a singular, interoperable platform. Our value goes beyond Ecommerce and In-Person payments with a broad offering on financial services like issuing, business accounts and credit covering the whole value chain. Adyen for Platforms is a comprehensive solution for marketplaces and platforms to accept and manage payments for their sub-merchants or sellers. Our Adyen for Platforms business has experienced immense growth, with 82% YoY increase in volume and several platforms processing more than 1bn USD annually. This growth underscores the significant embedded payments potential for platforms and highlights our technology's growing appeal, making platforms the fastest-growing pillar within Adyen.
The focus will be on global SaaS platforms and E-Commerce marketplaces that give access to millions of users; so you’re not only building long lasting relationships, but also helping activate new revenue streams through Adyen’s solutions beyond payments processing.
Check out our quick intro for the Platforms pillar, where Hemmo Bosscher, our SVP of Platforms and Financial Services, digs into the opportunity embedded finance presents to platforms. Learn more about the platforms banking revolution here.
