About us

Our mission is to make it easy for organizations to transact with humans.

Payroll services help organizations pay their employees... but what about everyone else? The user who participated in a live feedback session, the job applicant who did a take-home project, the loyal customer who put up with a terrible bug?

Organizations are constantly working with people, and then struggling to find ways to compensate them. That's what Tremendous is here to solve.

What we do

The Tremendous platform allows organizations to pay people around the world.

One core element of our platform is choice. People have different preferences for how they prefer to be paid.  Organizations use Tremendous to give their recipients a choice of money, Visa cards, gift cards and charity donations.

We also handle the rest of the tricky stuff–currency conversions, money movement, cross-border regulations, and reporting. And if something ever goes wrong, our customer support team is best-in-class and ready to help.

We're just getting started.

Brand names send rewards with Tremendous


Tremendous started as a gifting website designed for individuals, with the goal of making gift giving easier and more flexible. But quickly, businesses found us and started using the site to send user research incentives, signup promotions, and employee recognition rewards.

This wasn't the intended use case for the site, but was intriguing nonetheless. So the team dug in, and discovered a gigantic problem:

Organizations were trying to pay individuals on a one-off basis, but didn't have a simple way to do so.

We refocused the company on solving this problem, and launched the current version of Tremendous.com in 2017.

Today, Tremendous helps thousands of businesses, schools, and non-profits compensate people around the world. And though we've grown substantially as a product and team, our commitment to the mission remains the same.
