Citizen is a European fintech, founded in 2017 by former Worldpay CTO, James Neville. Since then, it’s grown to three locations with a customer base across Europe from a wide range of sectors - all of whom are committed to delivering efficient payment options combined with an excellent customer experience. Based on open banking standards, Citizen’s PayBlox platform comprises a purpose-built online toolkit that traders and merchants can deploy to optimise every stage of their payment processes - reducing costs and materially enhancing the customer experience. Citizen became a regulated payment institute in 2019, and was one of the first companies licensed to provide payments and identity services using open banking. With headquarters in London, Citizen is backed by leading investors including Metavallon VC, SGH Capital and Fin VC.
Citizen's core mission is centered around enhancing public safety and empowering communities through real-time, location-based information and communication.
