In the last year, our company experienced tremendous growth. We expanded out teams and opened a new office, we released new product features, hit the headlines, and started working with more clients and partners.

Watch the highlights



In the news

With Open Banking, payment solutions and fintech being key points of discussion for many media channels this year, we secured over 70 pieces of coverage. Some were in national titles, including a piece in The Times and The Scotsman. Others were in top trade titles like Finextra and PYMNTS. 

Modulr was recognised across industry - winning six awards this year, including Best B2B Payments Programme and Best Technical Organisation supporting Emerging Payments at the Emerging Payments Awards in 2018. The team also took home silver for the Leading Payments Start-Up category. 

At The Rewards 2018, we came home with the Technology Award and the International Payments Provider Award. At the Lending Awards 2018 , together with Salary Finance, we secured Alternative Consumer Lender of the Year 2018. 

Company expansion
The real highlight, was opening our Edinburgh office and expanding into the city's 'bonnie' fintech scene. Through this, we were able to create 30 new jobs locally, in software engineering, compliance, and customer support. 

Overall, 2018 has been a spectacular year, and we look forward to continued growth and success in 2019. A big thanks to our team, partners and customers who make it all happen!
