Customer centricity We are here to listen to, learn from and serve our customers. Period. Deliver on promises We help our customers deliver on their promises by keeping our promises. We are accountable for our commitments, no matter how small. Hire & develop exceptional people We hire unique and diverse talent who embrace challenges and grow on the job. We coach and invest to help every employee succeed. Act with integrity We have zero tolerance for unethical people, products, practices or partners. Sweat the details We roll up our sleeves and stay connected to the details. We don’t settle for “good enough”. Data driven We attempt to measure everything, then use qualitative and quantitative insights to make better decisions. Bias for action We urgently prioritize and act. A good decision now is better than a great decision later. When necessary, we disagree and commit. Be an owner We think, act and take responsibility beyond our immediate team and role, to benefit our customers, colleagues and the broader business. Aim for the stars We dream big, think long term, and create amazing customer experiences. Continuously improve We are humble, curious and self-driven learners. We work hard to find the “best” way to do something, then keep trying to find an even better way. Don’t be afraid to fail We are purpose-driven and don’t let fear impact our decisions or actions. When experiments fail or we make mistakes, we learn fast, openly share our learnings, and jump right back in. Lead authentically Everyone is a leader. We are open, self-aware, and enthusiastically share knowledge and context to help others succeed. Be an empathetic partner We value positive, long-lasting relationships. We listen and seek to understand, assume positive intent, treat everyone with respect, and advocate as allies for each other. Constructively direct We are clear about our own intent, then give and welcome feedback that’s direct, compassionate, timely and transparent. Joyful We celebrate how lucky we are to serve our customers and mission, to solve fascinating problems, and to work and have fun with talented colleagues.

To be able to serve millions of customers who send money home to their families in 100+ different countries, requires teams of committed individuals who exemplify a deep level of empathy, genuine curiosity, and varied lived experiences, perspectives and backgrounds so that together, we can appreciate the different ways in which we all present, process, think, and operate. We have a number of programs and practices that help us build multi-cultural competencies such as customer empathy programs, hackathons, learning opportunities including travel to our recipient countries, a scholars program, as well as resources like Crescendo, which provides employees with weekly micro-DEI learning moments through Slack that include insights about different identities, lived experiences and cultures.


Equity is at the core of our DEI first principles. We recognize that much of global structural systems (e.g. policies, practices and programs) are inherently inequitable. So, employees, at all levels, are encouraged to actively participate in continuously improving these structural systems to create more equity for all employees, customers and the immigrant communities we serve all over the world. We also invest in tools and resources that help us identify opportunities for improvement and accountability at Remitly, like our recent partnership with


Equity and inclusion are deeply rooted in our purpose and mission at Remitly. Our focus everyday is to tirelessly deliver for our customers, many of whom have historically been left out of traditional financial systems. Inclusion starts with our cultural values which showcase and celebrate the diverse ways in which we connect and collaborate with teammates to help us better serve our customers.
