General information

Duration: 
6 months
Commitment: 
Full-time
Description: 

We’re a FinTech start-up that leverages new banking laws (PSD2) being implemented across Europe in 2020, putting the duopoly of Visa and Mastercard under threat by new entrants looking to capitalise on the payments market. The opportunity is to compete with the large payment giants and create new payments infrastructure. 

The hospitality world is offline, and our ambition is to connect to all merchants across Europe by 2024. Payments are currently very expensive, with Visa and Mastercard making billions every year by charging merchants expensive fees. 

 

This high cost is the reason that the hospitality world isn’t online yet, and with Lynq’s new payments processing, we can be the one to make it happen. 

The first part of our vision is to innovate within the hospitality market by creating a digital connection between merchants and consumers (cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs, clubs takeaways etc) to enable them to access venue promotions and order food, drinks or tickets through the app for collection or table delivery, with payment made via our own banking integrations.
