Co-founder and CTO Arnout Schuijff to step down
Amsterdam, September 23 – Adyen today announces that Arnout Schuijff, Adyen co-founder and CTO, will step down from the management board per January 1, 2021. Arnout leaves behind a legacy that began with the signing of Adyen’s first office lease and the hiring of its first engineers in 2006. “After 14 years of building Adyen, it’s time to leave the next stage of development to a new generation of highly-talented engineers. I’m confident that they’ll be able to harvest the massive opportunities we’ve created together. I couldn’t be prouder of our team’s achievements at Adyen over the past years,” says Arnout Schuijff. “It’s hard to find words to do justice to Arnout’s contribution to the company, but put simply: we wouldn’t have come this far without Arnout. While it’s bittersweet, I’m optimistic and excited for the decade ahead with the engineering team we’ve built over the years,” says Pieter van der Does, co-founder and CEO.
