Circle is a consumer Internet company focused on transforming the world economy with secure, simple and less costly technology for storing and using money. Circle is backed by $136 million from investors including Goldman Sachs Baidu CreditEase IDG China Breyer Capital Accel and General Catalyst.
With offices in Boston San Francisco Dublin and London Circle is building mobile apps aimed at enabling greater ease-of-use in online and in-person payments with enhanced security and privacy and the convenience of free instant global digital money transfers.
Ever think about why you can email your friend in China, read an Italian newspaper on your tablet or post pics of your trip abroad instantly and virtually free, when moving money is archaic and frustrating? We did. A lot.
Using our experience in internet technology and global finance (like helping to found and build the Allaire Corporation and Brightcove, and honing our skills at places like Square, JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Adobe and Amazon), we’re making online payments easier to use, safer and more convenient than ever.
So, how exactly are we doing this? Unlike existing systems that are closed and proprietary, we use open internet standards and protocols, including the blockchain (allowing us to offer this service for free). We also foster innovative approaches to risk, including our AI risk engine, which runs on cutting edge algorithms that continuously keep your money safe.
Let’s change money together.
Like the sound of unlimited paid time off, flexible hours, free breakfast and lunch daily and unlimited happy hours? These unbeatable perks are the cherry on top of standard medical and dental insurance, 401K, mobile phone benefits and commuter discounts. (Let’s be honest, they’re the rainbow sprinkles, too.)
