Apto Payments is transforming the card issuance industry. We help companies issue new cards with a better cardholder experience by removing constraints and enabling new use cases. Founded in 2014 as Shift Payments, the company worked with Coinbase to launch the first Bitcoin debit card. Today, as Apto, our mission is ambitious, creating new ways to connect people to their assets - crypto and non-crypto - by helping companies successfully launch innovative, user-centric card programs.

Apto is a well-funded early-stage startup headquartered in San Francisco with a fully remote team. We are focused on responsibly growing our business, building best-in-class products while managing regulatory and financial risk. We're motivated to empower developers and customers to design and develop the next generation of can’t-live-without card products. Our headquarters are in San Francisco, but we have fully embraced and are constantly improving our remote-focused culture for those who prefer to be based elsewhere in the United States.
