Venmo was founded on the principles of breaking down the intimidating barriers around financial transactions to make them intuitive, friendly and yes, even fun. And it worked: people love sending money with Venmo and they’re growing by leaps and bounds.

But they’re only just getting started.

They want to take that magic of sending money with Venmo and cascade it across every place where people use money. That means connecting people to their money in the most intuitive and fun way possible, then connecting people with each other. Users already love Venmo, but they know there are lots of things they have yet to imagine to make the Venmo experience even more delightful and valuable.

All that’s going to take a lot of collaboration. Let’s figure it out together!
