info iconBasic Information

Citizen is rethinking the way people identify and pay online.

With more of our lives spent online we’re finding ways to make online payments and identity easier, more secure and private.

We’re creating a payments platform that gives businesses access to innovative new ways to transact with their customers, and more confidence in their identity.

Founded in 2017 by James Neville, ex-CTO of Worldpay, we started with a mission to create a better way to pay and verify yourself online.

We’ve since grown to three locations and a customer base across Europe, backed by some of Europe's leading investors.

We become a fully FCA-regulated payment institute in 2019 and are amongst the first companies to be licensed to provide both payment and identity services using Open Banking.

We are looking for a talented Front-end developer with strong web development skills and exposure to web and mobile platforms to join our startup.
