How we worktogether is guided by the Adyen Formula. These eight principles are not constant – but constantly evolving to keep pace with our merchants, our business and growth of the team.  
The Adyen Formula
1. We build to benefit all merchants (not just one)
2. We make good choices to build an ethical business and drive sustainable growth for our merchants
3. We launch fast and iterate
4. Winning is more important than ego; we work as a team - across cultures and time zones
5. We don’t hide behind email, instead we pick up the phone
6. We talk straight without being rude
7. We include different people to sharpen our ideas
8. We create our own path and won’t be slowed down by “stewards”



Adyen was founded in 2006 by a group of entrepreneurs, including Pieter van der Does and Arnout Schuijff. The existing payments technology consisted of a patchwork of systems built on outdated infrastructure. With the aim of helping businesses grow, the co-founders set out to build a platform capable of meeting the rapidly evolving needs of today's fast-growing global businesses. Adyen's founding team called the business Adyen – Surinamese for "Start over again" – and focused on building a modern infrastructure directly connected to card networks and local payment methods across the world, allowing for unified commerce and providing shopper data insights to merchants. The Adyen platform enables merchants to accept payments in a single system, enabling revenue growth online, on mobile devices and at the point of sale.



In 2018 Adyen was ranked 16th on the CNBC Disruptor 50 list making Adyen one of the leading private companies changing the world through innovation. In order to keep innovating and making sure we offer the best payment solution out there, we operate in an agile manner, guided by the Adyen Formula and the ever-evolving needs of merchants. These principles – to help merchants grow, to change the payments landscape, and to have fun while doing it – allow us to be a growth partner to the merchants that we work with. We aim to be at the forefront when it comes to developing new functionality as business models evolve.



As a company we
strive to make good choices to build an ethical business. Being a rapidly expanding company, so expands our social responsibility. In order to give back to the society we have initiated several initiatives (with more to come in the near future!). One of these initiatives is for example our collaboration with HackYourFuture. This organization is training refugees to be programmers and our development team is coaching participants by checking their coding assignments and practicing (technical) interviews with them to fully prepare them for the Dutch job market.
