Where are we in September?
After a relaxing summer, we’ve got a busy month ahead of us at GoCardless HQ. Find out what the team has got planned for September (and end of August!), including some of our people giving talks, conferences, seminars and meetups - not just in London, but also further afield.
At GoCardless, we’re a team of learners. Whether it’s improving our technical ability, polishing our soft skills or updating our industry knowledge; we’ll hungrily grasp at every opportunity to learn. We find that sharing our new learnings with others is one of the best ways to consolidate them.
Engaging with our community provides us with a perfect platform to learn, share and develop not only ourselves, but other Fintech enthusiasts too!
What we’ve been up to:
