As readers of On the GO know, BillGO is a fintech trailblazer harnessing speed, choice and intelligence to deliver an all-in-one bill management and payments platform to financial institutions (FIs), consumers and other fintechs.
It’s an ambitious goal and, in order to deliver, BillGO is always on the lookout for top-tier technical talent – people who are wholly committed to learning, growing and delivering high-quality products to our customers.
Those customers, by the way, include more than 8,000 FIs, 170,000 billers & supplier endpoints, 32 million consumers and several leading tech giants.
“Like most startups in the process of scaling, we certainly have challenges to overcome, but the spirit of teamwork and fearless honesty we cultivate here makes it a joy.”
Meeting the needs of that diverse group of users is a tall order. One way BillGO consistently delivers is by creating an environment that supports our developers and engineers.
Mark P., a BillGO programmer, confirms this.
“BillGO is an amazing place to work, and it’s an honor to work alongside so many talented professionals,” he says. “Like most startups in the process of scaling, we certainly have a few challenges to overcome, but the spirit of teamwork and fearless honesty we cultivate here makes it a joy.”

We are not just looking for seasoned programmers, developers and software engineers; we also want problem solvers and collaborators who possess a passion for learning. Ideal candidates will have experience working with teams and solving big problems in a fast-paced environment.

If you’re considering BillGO, you should know BillGO was recently certified as a Great Place to Work for 2022, but it wasn’t the first time our company captured industry attention.
In 2021 Growjo - a ranking company that uses algorithms to track organizational success - placed BillGO on its list of the 500 fastest growing startups in the world, but that was only one of the accolades we scored in 2021. That same year Forbes called out BillGO as a “Best Startup Employer,” Fortune recognized BillGO as a “Best Place to Work,” and Inc. magazine named BillGO a “Best Workplace” in 2021. American Banker included BillGO on its list of Top Fintechs to work for in 2020.

Most of those recognitions were based on confidential surveys distributed directly to BillGO employees. So, when BillGO is named a “best place” to work, it’s because BillGOans sincerely believe it’s a pleasure to clock in each day.
Yes, working at BillGO can be demanding, but, by design, the company culture puts a premium on employees remaining serene and happy.
“Some employers say they care about the work-life balance of their employees,” says T. Smith, a senior engineer. “Here at BillGO, they take action by providing unlimited PTO as well as requiring full-time employees take a mandatory week of vacation every six months to be proactive against burnout.”
