We're a team that's passionate about writing software, and we're building a world-class financial platform to power the next wave of financial service products.

Founded in NYC in 2014 as Privacy, our mission was, and still is, to build the best payments software we could to make paying online simply better. What we didn't anticipate at the time was the overwhelming demand we would receive from businesses to leverage the tools we had built for their own use cases.

Now, as a team of over 100 creators with extensive financial technology, regulatory, and product expertise, we're launching the platform we've built as its own business. With backing from excellent investors, we've doubled down to build the fastest, simplest card issuing tools for developers to programmatically create virtual and physical payment cards, and monitor their transactions. We call it Lithic.
