Mollie announces FinTech Centre of Excellence in Maastricht, Netherlands
By Joy Dumasia
Mollie, one of the fastest-growing payment service providers in Europe, announced it would be opening a new FinTech Centre of Excellence in Maastricht, Netherlands. The centre will extend Mollie’s headquarters in Amsterdam, allowing the business to scale and drive growth for its 125,000+ merchant clients. The Maastricht FinTech Centre of Excellence will house new employees across various departments, including development, operations and customer experience.
With its new Centre of Excellence office based in Maastricht’s bustling city centre, Mollie aims to create a modern and relaxed environment in which new staff can feel at home. Mollie’s culture has made it popular with its current employees, with Glassdoor named Mollie one of the best FinTechs to work for in the Netherlands. The company has also received certification from Great Place to Work.
Mollie chose Maastricht for its diverse and international workforce, with over 63 languages spoken across the city. This will allow Mollie to cater to a wide range of markets from the hub, particularly its French, Dutch, German and English-speaking customers and partners. Mollie plans to work with local universities and schools, providing presentations and workshops to support students entering the professional environment.
Shane Happach, CEO, Mollie, said: “Mollie is going through an extraordinary phase of growth, and it’s vital we ensure our customers remain our top priority. We are excited to open our FinTech Centre of Excellence in Maastricht. The city has a distinct and wide talent pool that will support our company’s expansion. We’re aiming to hire 200-250 ambitious and talented new Mollies at all stages of their careers across the gamut of roles within Mollie – from engineering to support, commerce to compliance. We want Maastricht to feel like an extension of our Amsterdam headquarters and are eager to replicate our company’s heart and soul at the Eiffel building.”
Vivianne Heijnen, Vice Mayor of Maastricht, said: “The arrival of Europe’s fastest-growing payments service provider is a testament to the strength of Maastricht as an international city. Maastricht is uniquely positioned in the heart of Europe with its strong work-life balance, leading universities and diverse population of multilingual citizens who bring different perspectives and skills to bear. It’s fitting that a true payments innovator should make its new home in the birthplace of the Euro. We look forward to welcoming Mollie to Maastricht and working with it as it helps our local community to grow.”
