See Why Our Team Members Call Allegiance Their Home

“I began working for Allegiance in 2016 as a sales team member responsible for canvasing a territory and meeting with business owners and decision makers to sell Allegiance and our PaaS (payments as a service) solutions. Prior to Allegiance, my experience with payments was solely as a consumer swiping my card for purchases. I never put much thought in the actual process and technologies. Even though we operate as a small business with a family feel, we have accounts in every state and across many different industries and size from smaller local business to international manufacturers. My 6 years with Allegiance has been full of wonderful experiences of personal and professional knowledge and growth. I have had the opportunity to work closely with our senior leadership team members, including directly with the owner and CEO, and credit much of my knowledge and success to the close contact; contact you do not typically have in a larger company. Allegiance leadership makes our work efforts rewarding while stretching our comfort level to create personal growth in the teams and across the company. Through my years and drive and the opportunities I have had and connections I have made in my sales roles, I have been able to work my way into a senior leadership role and now help cultivate and grow the next generation of Allegiance!”
