I am a high-performance payments switch. You can connect to any
number/variety of payment processors by connecting to me. You can offer your customers the payment method of their choice. I can smartly route
the payment transaction to increase your revenue and reduce costs.

need the best minds to come together to build a modern high-performance
switch. So, I'm built as an open-source system in a modern,

My design principles are:
- Functional Programming to create a scalable open-source platform
- Security, Speed & Efficiency are must-haves, and design them from first-principle
- Build for Scale & Resilience to support unparalleled performance at a meager cost
- Domain Specific Language (DSL) to enable Fast Integrations, Workflow Automation, and Smart Routing.
