People & Culture

Our people are driven to be the best, to constantly challenge the norm to keep our team and EML at the forefront of payment solutions.


We are committed to an inclusive and collaborative culture, helping our 534 employees develop their careers and thrive at work every day.


We operate in 25 countries worldwide. A company of global scale with local know-how and commitment to service.


With 10 offices around the world, we operate through a variety of time-zones.

The values we live by

It’s important we share a common set of behaviours and language which defines who we are and what’s important to us. A common set of values that guide what we do and how we do it.

One Team.

We work as one team. It’s our collective brilliance that gives us an edge; we stand by any decision that’s made for the greater team. We trust you. Trust is the basis for everything we do and essential for our success.


We bring our A-game every day. We innovate and embrace change to create awesomeness. Take great ideas and transform them into reality – we look to change the payments game. We make time to help our colleagues, so we can all be awesome.


We are not hierarchical, teamwork is more important at EML. Great ideas know no boundaries. Inclusion, tolerance and diversity are non-negotiable. We nurture and embrace differing perspectives to make better decisions. We value frankness, genuineness, and being non-political.


Simplicity is genius. We look to minimise complexity and find the smart and simple solution. Payments are complex, our job is to make life easy for our customers. We know that our customers’ success is our success.Sometimes less is more. We don’t use corporate speak, we talk plain and straight.

Opportunity to get real experience

To us, learning and development isn’t a box you tick. We don’t just ask you to embrace it, we ask you to own it. We take an always-on approach, encouraging you to learn on the job through stretch assignments, new challenges, and knowledge sharing so you can drive your own development. Not just once a year. But every single day.

It's our people who make it all possible
