About Softpay and our team

Does working for one of Europe’s fastest-growing fintech companies sound interesting to you? Are you keen to join an international team of highly dedicated people focused on dramatically changing how card payments are handled in-store? If so, you are in the right place!

Softpay is a fintech company with a head office in Copenhagen and more than 40 employees across Europe that provides a software-based payment terminal. The solution can be downloaded to any mobile phone or tablet and turn it into a contactless payment terminal (SoftPOS), supporting the trend of moving away from dedicated hardware to using mobile multi-purpose devices for payment and other in-store tasks.

The Softpay solution is used both by merchants of any size, and help retailers, hospitality businesses and transportation companies changing the customer experience by serving customers and receive payment in the aisles, at the table or at home.

Softpay has defined a number of markets where Softpay wants to become one of the leading providers of SoftPOS solutions, and Germany is a key market. Softpay already has agreements with large German partners, but we want to accelerate our business in Germany and are therefore looking for a combined Sales Director and Country Manager.
