We heard you might be looking for a new opportunity! sunday might be the perfect stop for you. Just in case you haven't heard, sunday is an exciting and thriving FinTech (or FunTech) startup that's changing the way payments are made in restaurants across the world. We are saving millions of people minutes at the end of their meal with the simple scan of a tiny 4x4cm QR code. The coolest thing is we are growing quickly and possibly have the perfect position for you.


🚀 Mission

At sunday we are creating the future of payments. In 3 years, no customer in a restaurant will raise their hand after a meal to ask for the bill. In 5 years, nobody will remember how we paid when there were no QR codes.

  • 300 employees in 5 countries (France, UK, Spain, US and Canada) 
  • An amazing tech team of 100 top performers
