You know a company has an exciting future when its name has turned into a verb. (See: Google, Facebook, Yelp.) So it’s definitely promising that “I’ll Venmo you” is popping out of mouths around the nation.
Venmo, a payment platform that allows users to exchange money with friends for everything from gas money to dinner, is rapidly growing. It became part of the eBay family in 2013, which has given it a lot of financial freedom. Now, the team is focused on creating a revolutionary product.
To accomplish that, everyone at Venmo must understand what they’re building. Engineers make up about 50% of the team, and 70-80% of employees can write code—even if their jobs aren’t technical.
Everyone is also willing to pitch in. “More than anywhere else I’ve worked, I’ve found that everybody you work with here will do whatever they can to help you get what you need done,” says Theresa Reagan, a product manager.
When they want to relax, Venmo employees take advantage of the many games scattered throughout the office. There are PCs, consoles, even physical board games. Recently, more than 20 employees took a spontaneous break to have a Wii marathon.
