Flywire is a global payments enablement and software company, on a mission to deliver the world’s most important and complex payments.
We use our Flywire Advantage – the combination of our next-gen payments platform, proprietary payment network and vertical specific software – to help our clients get paid, and help their customers pay with ease, no matter where they are in the world.
Over the past decade, we’ve built strong relationships with our clients, developed innovative technology, become market experts, and cultivated a uniquely down-to-earth company culture focused on customer success. We have more than 600 FlyMates representing over 40 nationalities located in 13 offices around the world.
Today, we’ve digitized payments for more than 2,500 global clients across education, healthcare, travel & B2B, covering more than 240 countries and territories and supporting over 140 currencies. And, we’re just getting started!
We’re proud of how far we’ve come, but we know this is just the beginning of Flywire’s journey, because the dedication and innovation at the core of our company continues to grow.
We believe in teamwork. Together we are greater than the sum of individual FlyMates, across experience, location and position. We seek to understand and embrace everyone’s uniqueness, and leverage the power of our FlyMates and customers’ cultural differences and perspectives to create magic.
We never compromise on integrity, honesty, and kindness. We believe in staying true to oneself, being courageous enough to share your voice and humble enough to admit when you are wrong. Above all, we are straight shooters who encourage both giving and receiving feedback.
We recognize that fulfillment comes from personal and professional satisfaction, from bringing our whole selves to work. It is understanding what ignites our individual passions and gets us excited, while being inclusive and knowing that this is different for everyone. We believe that by engaging with the wider community, giving back and contributing, our greater purpose is fulfilled.
