Founded in 2014 as a research and development division of Paytm, we now have offices in Toronto and Montreal. Since we began, we’ve applied big data, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to Paytm’s data assets, providing optimal financial products to over 450 million consumers and over 20 million merchants.
In 2017, we embarked on our mission to simplify the lives of Canadians by launching the Paytm Canada app, the first app in Canada to reward you for paying your bills. Our popular consumer-facing mobile app allows consumers to pay their bills using multiple payment options as well as earn rewards via their smartphone.
Next, in 2018, we entered a joint venture between Paytm, Softbank, and Yahoo! Japan to launch PayPay, a QR-based smartphone payment settlement service in Japan offered to both merchants and customers. PayPay has rapidly become a super app in Japan with 35 million customers and counting. To put that into context, that's approximately 30% of the population in Japan.
We're currently building more game-changing products to bring to market. Check out our Job Postings if you're looking to push boundaries and reach your potential!
