Welcoming our new CTO, Noam Oren

Written by Yapily · June 14th, 2022

Today we are welcoming our new Chief Technology Officer, Noam Oren.

Joining the team after 13 years at Payoneer, Noam brings to Yapily over two decades of cross-border payments experience, meeting the needs of enterprise companies, and scaling global organisations. In his last role, he contributed to the company's growth from the seed stage to a successful IPO in 2021.

Here at Yapily, Noam will be responsible for shaping a long-term platform strategy to scale our innovative open banking products and services. He will be integral in bridging technical vision with business goals, supporting our ambitious growth plans as we continue to expand and enter new markets across Europe.

In case you missed it, the appointment follows our recent agreement to acquire leading German open banking platform finAPI and several new strategic partnerships with the likes of OpenPayd, Two, and Yonder.

“Over the last few years, I’ve watched Yapily evolve from a disruptive new market entrant into the open banking platform of choice for hundreds of businesses across Europe.”

Whether it’s accessing financial data or initiating faster and more secure payments, it’s exciting to see consumers and businesses benefitting from the enhanced user experience Yapily is enabling its customers to build. I can’t wait to start working with the team and join Yapily’s mission to become the central nervous system of the open economy.” - Noam Oren, Chief Technology Officer, Yapily

“As Yapily and the wider open banking ecosystem continue to grow rapidly, mainstream adoption is simply no longer a case of if, but when. Noam’s expertise will help to strengthen our position as a European leader and accelerate the delivery of better and more innovative financial services to millions of people.” - Stefano Vaccino, Founder and CEO, Yapily

Noam will succeed Joao Martins, who moves to payments company KodyPay, to pursue his passion for building direct consumer applications and continuing to enable better and fairer payments.

“Having made significant contributions to Yapily’s success, I am very grateful for Joao’s partnership and wish him all the best in his new venture. At the same time, I am incredibly excited to welcome Noam to the team and look forward to this new chapter,” added Stefano.
