Our story

Adyen was founded in 2006 by a group of entrepreneurs, including Pieter van der Does and Arnout Schuijff. The existing payments technology consisted of a patchwork of systems built on outdated infrastructure. With the aim of helping businesses grow, the co-founders set out to build a platform capable of meeting the rapidly evolving needs of today's fast-growing global businesses.

Our story

Adyen Formula

The way we work is guided by the eight principles of the Adyen Formula.

We build to benefit all customers (not just one)

We make good choices to build an ethical business and drive sustainable growth for our customers

We launch fast and iterate

Winning is more important than ego; we work as a team - across cultures and time zones

We don’t hide behind email, instead we pick up the phone

We talk straight without being rude

We include different people to sharpen our ideas

We create our own path and won’t be slowed down by “stewards”
