“Otta Pro is a fantastic solution for making hires across our business, even for harder-to-fill technical roles”,

Jonathan Gilbert, Director of Talent Acquisition at Checkout.com

Checkout.com is one of the world's most valuable fintechs, backed by top investors including Tiger Global Management and Insight Partners. Their mission is to enable businesses and their communities to thrive in the digital economy.

They've built the go-to platform for all things related to payments, such as accepting transactions, processing them and detecting fraud. Their clients include well-known global brands like Wise, Sony, Klarna, Grab and Dashlane.

Since raising a $1B Series D round, Checkout.com has seen explosive growth in its hiring. Checkout.com turned to Otta to help make more than 30 key hires across functional teams including commercial, product, data and engineering.

A key benefit for Checkout.com is leveraging Otta Pro as a one-stop solution for filling critical roles - boosting inbound applications and outbound sourcing.

“Otta Pro has unlocked a pipeline of high quality talent to power our hyper growth.

Using the sourcing tool, we've hired impressive senior talent - Senior Software Engineers, Principal DevOps Engineers, Senior Product Designers - the list goes on.

Boosting the visibility of our job postings has been equally invaluable. Last year, 60% of our graduate software engineers applied via Otta - making it our biggest source of early careers talent. ”
