Hyperwallet, a global payouts provider to millions of independent workers, announced on Thursday (Oct. 13) the launch of its new Developer Evangelism program, which will see the company’s focus shift towards building relationships within the wider developer community and taking a "developer-first" approach to future releases.
In a press release, Hyperwallet also said it had recruited Dan Harrison, a technical solutions expert with a long history of customer advocacy, to head up the program. Harrison will be responsible for fostering relationships within the wider developer community, as well as showcasing the functionality of Hyperwallet’s API integration options.
“Dan is unique both in his ability to rapidly understand complex technology and in his ability to explain its value in a simple, engaging way,” said Bill Crowley, Hyperwallet’s chief product officer, in the press release. “Hyperwallet is already pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in outbound payments. Dan’s technical expertise will help us further demonstrate to businesses that utilize independent workforces — gig platforms, digital marketplaces — just how easy it is to integrate Hyperwallet’s truly global payout.”
In September, the company announced that, by building on its current developer portal, it will be able to offer developers one-click “Go Live” implementation methods. “Their documentation, webhooks and user-friendly portal made it easy for us to integrate, test and quickly get up and running,” Ernie Naylor, president at Karrot Rewards, an early adopter of Hyperwallet’s Developer Program, said in a press release at the time. The updated functionality is designed to help ease and speed up the real-world implementation of payout solutions for developers.
