Director of Product & Technology

Munich
CrossCard – CrossCard
Full Time
With Crosscard we’re on a mission to simplify and automate company spending and cash management and make it... well, cashless.

Fully digital, free from paperwork, free from receipt hunting and reimbursements. Free from all the hassle. We empower employees while managers get full visibility and control over all company spending, at all times.

But we don’t stop there. With our software, leveraging virtual accounts and physical and virtual cards, we not only want to build an ecosystem that takes away the pain of small amount expenses but enables companies of all sizes to best serve their unique organisational needs. All they will need is a bank account.

So, what’s that… are we a startup and starting from scratch? Yes. And no.

We are a licensed e-money institution and member of Mastercard with offices in Luxembourg and Munich. We have been running a successful consumer product for the last 5 years and our current B2B customers are in good company. All this we created under the hat of PPRO, the go-to hub for local payment methods funded by HPE, Paypal and Citi.

To create a stronger focus on our own mission we have decided to become a standalone company and develop a strong technical ecosystem building upon the running business and experience we have. Quite a luxurious situation for a startup we’d say. And one that absolutely excites us!
