Thank You Sezzle!

What does Sezzle do?

Sezzle is a fintech company whose mission is to financially empower the next generation. Our first product is an alternative payment platform that enables shoppers to pay with interest-free installment plans. We help merchants increase conversion rates, basket sizes, and purchase frequency, primarily with young shoppers who lack traditional credit.

When and how did Sezzle start?

Sezzle started in January 2016 when Charlie Youakim left Passport, a transportation payments company he co-founded, to build a solution that catered to Millennial and Gen Z consumers with Paul Paradis, a friend from business school and experienced sales and marketing executive.

What is unique about working at Sezzle?

We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we take our work very seriously. We believe there is a massive disconnect between traditional financial services companies and young adults in the US, and everyone here is energized to solve this problem.

What are some open positions Sezzle is hiring for right now?

Current open positions include: Full-Stack Engineers – Senior & Junior, Android and iOS Developers, Customer Service Representatives, Merchant Success/Development, Sales, and Data Science.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Sezzle is growing very quickly and we are determined to become a major player in the payments industry by focusing on the customer and what they need and want.
