UK payments platform Checkout.com has launched a new research and development hub in Israel as part of its international growth plans and to allow the company to tap into new technical talent pools.
Checkout.com says that the new office will serve as a hub for the development of several product lines and as such it will be hiring “in the double digits” across its product and engineering functions.
In line with this, the company’s Chief Product Officer Meron Colbeci has relocated to Tel Aviv where he joins Ido Lustig, the new Vice President of Product for Risk & Identity and General Manager of Israel.
