They say that if you want to go fast, go alone but if you want to go far, go together. But at Trustly, we say: why choose when you can do both?
Today we’re excited to announce that Team Trustly has grown to 300 employees, spread across our offices in Stockholm, Sliema, London, Örebro, Cologne, Barcelona and Helsinki!
We’ve come a long way since the early days of taking phone calls in the stairwell and we have no plans to slow down. Well, maybe just for a few minutes…
We took a quick break to celebrate this milestone with our favorite Swedish tradition, fika!

But fast growth isn’t all cupcakes and balloons. Johanna Alvemur, Head of People Operations at Trustly, says that scaling up has its challenges. “A lot of times when a company grows at a fast pace, there is a risk of unintentionally lowering its hiring standards. At Trustly, we try to maintain our high standards by evaluating candidates from as many angles as possible. This helps us get a 360-degree understanding of who they are, what their strengths are and where they want to grow.”
And recruitment is a two-way street, Johanna explains. “We aim to introduce the candidate to as many colleagues as possible and we don’t sugar coat the company or our challenges. We want potential candidates to leave with a clear understanding of what it’s like to work here and as a result, we have a retention rate to be proud of.”
With so many brilliant minds on board, we’re in a better position than ever to revolutionize the way people pay online. If you’d like to join us, check out the 40+ openings we’re currently looking to fill.
