What inspires us at Azimo
Azimo is the faster, cheaper and better way to transfer money. That describes our service pretty accurately and makes for a very effective marketing slogan. But what it doesn’t do is reveal much about who we are and what inspires us as a company.
During the last few months, we’ve tried to take a step back and properly define our mission, vision and core values. These values aren’t necessarily related to our product, but they’re principles and beliefs that help us shape our company culture. They inspire existing employees, attract new ones and drive us on to achieve our vision:
“The better way to share money around the world, improving millions of people’s lives”
What is the better way? We’re building a world without borders where you can transfer money to anyone, anywhere, with just a phone number — where sending cash is as easy as sending a message.
How can we improve millions of people lives? By making our service affordable to all, we allow more money to reach those who need it most. And by making it more intuitive, faster and available 24/7, we’ve cut out the need for lengthy queues and lengthy forms — which gives you more time to focus on the things that really matter.
“For the people” — We see a world of people and relationships, not nations and borders. Through our affordable, universal service, we’re able to unlock people’s potential, and give power and control of money back to the customer.
“Every moment counts” — We move fast and have a sense of urgency in everything we do because our customers shouldn’t have to wait. We’re bold and willing to take risks in order to build a better product faster.
“None of us is as smart as all of us” — We value energy as much as experience and we know that greatness is unlocked by teamwork. We share, we observe and we learn from each other. Everyone is approachable and always there to help.
“We don’t follow the hype” — We’re relentless in our pursuit of better and we define our own path to get there. We innovate but don’t necessarily do what’s ‘trendy’ or ‘expected’. We do what makes sense and what we’re capable of, and we try to do it better.
How we want to be seen by our customers
Global: Azimo is for everyone. We are a culture of many cultures.
Trusted: Azimo is reliable, honest and dependable. We are in the business of trust.
Empowering: We help people to change both their lives and the lives of others.
Human: We speak your language. While we’re serious about our customers’ money, we are genuine, approachable and cheerful.
These values and attributes pretty much sum up the Azimo culture — they’re who we are and what we do, and they’re helping us to move faster and build better products every single day.
