What is Sanlo?

Gaming and apps represent an innovative, exciting, and creative industry that so skillfully combines data with design. Yet the financial side of this industry is still so often complicated and overlooked. Creators with great ideas should have access to financing - and advice - to ship amazing products: that’s where we come in.

Sanlo was founded in late 2020, and grew out of a shared passion for games and a deep respect for the developers building them. We bring curiosity and efficiency to everything we do, and cultivate a supportive learning environment within a rapidly changing, big opportunity industry. We’re building a platform of financial services to demystify finance and set our customers up for successful, smart growth. We’re about supporting and empowering gaming and app creators to create products that their customers love, while running profitable businesses.

What it's like to work at Sanlo

We're a young company, so you'll have an opportunity to shape not just our product, but the company itself: our vision, the success of our customers, and how we work together.

Here at Sanlo, we operate with a set of core values that help guide our intentions and interactions:

🌱 Always growing
🏃🏾 Spirit of a champion
👷‍♀️ Ownership
🌬️ Embracing the change
❤️ Authenticity
🧑🏿‍🤝‍🧑🏼 Community

As a remote-first team, we’re headquartered in sunny San Francisco ☀️ and sprinkled throughout the world.
