The power of partnership

Startups to multinational enterprises rely on Rippling to run their businesses, and most important, their payroll. Find out how J.P. Morgan and Rippling worked together to get money moving when it mattered most.


Parker Conrad: When you're a payroll company, the most important thing is, people need to get paid. Rippling makes HR, IT, and finance software. Anyone that's running their payroll on Rippling, behind the scenes, it's powered by J.P. Morgan.

Peggy Doerr: Rippling is developing an incredible product. They are the heaviest users of our latest and greatest tech. It is our job as J.P. Morgan on the back end to make sure that every dollar that flows through their payments infrastructure is optimized.

Vanessa Wu: We're incredibly innovative. And so we're looking for a partner that can not only meet that innovation, but provide global money movement with enterprise solutions.

Noah Wintroub: We think that the way that employees and employers interact, the software and technology that removes the friction between them is a core part of unlocking the incredible productivity power of the world through technology.

Adam Swiecicki: The regional banking crisis was a very unusual time for many of us and I was really impressed by the speed with which J.P. Morgan moved in order to ensure that Rippling and our customers were taken care of.

Parker Conrad: We had to move our entire payment rails over to J.P. Morgan. And we needed to do that to get 100,000 Americans paid on a Friday.

Noah Wintroub: At J.P. Morgan, our best days are the hardest days. We quickly moved in. We worked tirelessly across the company with thousands of employees to open accounts. And we needed to design the right solutions for Rippling so that we could grow with them.

Vanessa Wu: What normally would take a banking partner weeks, months, even years to accomplish, we saw J.P. Morgan mobilize in a matter of days. That really cemented for Rippling, our trust in the relationship that we were building with J.P. Morgan.

Rohan Dewan: Between investment banking, corporate banking, treasury, FX, asset management, it truly is a multifaceted, multidimensional relationship. We do have a unique opportunity to proactively address the needs of a high growth business that is increasingly global.

Adam Swiecicki: Our goal is to have true global coverage. And J.P. Morgan is going to be a critical part of making sure that that vision comes to life.

Parker Conrad: When you're a payroll company, you need to know that money is going to arrive on time in the right place every single time. And we know that that's going to happen with J.P. Morgan. They're going to move mountains to do right by their clients and that's our philosophy with our clients. And we know that it's the way J.P. Morgan thinks about things with our partnership.
