About Remitly

Remitly is an American digital money transfer service. It offers money transfer from 45 US states to Mexico, India and Philippines. Remitly was named one of the 10 hottest start ups in Seattle by GeekWire. In September 2015, the company reported sending $500 million in annualized transfers. Matt Oppenheimer went to Kenya in 2010 working on Barclays Bank’s mobile and Internet banking programs. While working there, he experienced problems in sending back money to the U.S. When he returned to the U.S., he founded BeamIt Mobile, a service that allowed sending money from some US states to Philippines. Later, Oppenheimer got accepted in the Techstars incubator program and relocated the company from Boise, Idaho to Seattle.
