By now we hope you’ve heard of Venmo, the mobile payment company owned by eBay.
The app comes in handy when dining out with large groups. Once the bill comes, it’s easy to figure out who owes what, and how everyone is going to pay.
We met with Venmo’s co-founders, Andrew Kortina and Iqram Magdon-Ismail at the New York headquarters, located near the Flatiron building, to take an office tour and to hear more about Venmo as a company.
The office was decorated and styled by HomePolish and had tons of interesting details. There’s even a stadium seating theatre space where employees can kick back and relax. Some employees even come in on weekends or stay into the wee hours of the morning to hang out.
There were about 25 people in the office that day, but the company employs more than 40 people in total.
This was the room where we met Kortina and Magdon-Ismail in. They co-founded Venmo after Magdon-Ismail went to visit Kortina in Chicago without his wallet, and had to write him a check for covering his expenses.
We were told Lucas, seen in these ads, is a real Venmo employee. You can see this huge ad campaign at the Bedford L subway stop in Brooklyn.
You can't see it in this shot, but this space is usually flooded with team members, working together.
Kortina said they wanted the Venmo office to be a place where employees would want to come and work.
