Global payment gateway BlueSnap announced today that the company has hired 20 eCommerce and payment industry veterans over the past four months and is opening an office in Chicago.
The new hires bring a track record of achievement from payment companies such as Chase Paymentech, American Express, Visa, WorldPay, Vantiv, Braintree and Adyen. On the heels of a $50M equity growth round, BlueSnap also announced its intention to hire another 20 employees who can support global growth and expansion.
With over 120 employees in Boston, London, Silicon Valley, Israel and now Chicago, BlueSnap has committed to establishing an international presence and building a global customer base.
"We continue to hire the best in the eCommerce payment space to help more merchants sell cross-border with our smarter payment gateway," said Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO of BlueSnap. "We are proud to welcome them to the team and are excited to continue with our product plans and growth in 2015."
BlueSnap has moved into an aggressive growth phase spurred by worldwide demand for better checkout experiences in the US and robust cross-border payment processing. Today, BlueSnap supports shoppers in 180 countries with localization in 29 languages, 60 currencies and 110 payment types.
