Onboarding New Talent At PaymentGenes
PaymentGenes recently added a new team member – Jonathan joined our IT & product recruitment team and we wanted to hear about his first experiences within the organization.
What is your function at PaymentGenes?
I (Jonathan Pothuis) joined PaymentGenes as an IT recruitment consultant. In short, I headhunt top IT professionals from around the world for the payments teams of our various clients.
What attracted you to being a recruiter?
Before joining PaymentGenes, I had the understanding that recruitment is an industry where you are able to challenge yourself to develop acute sales skills. Throughout my career, people around me have mentioned that I have a skill with people so I thought it would be a good direction to go in.

Can you explain why you joined PaymentGenes?
Two things convinced me to join PaymentGenes. The first one is the company culture that emphasizes continuous learning, where people constantly challenge each other in a positive way. This appealed to my endless curiosity. The second was the product. I have sold many things in my career, from comestibles to luxury design and art. At PaymentGenes however, we are not just selling a product, but actively changing people’s lives. This type of product seemed very attractive to me.
