Though the site’s contact page says the company’s office is still located at 2038 Locust Street, recent job postings on the company site suggest that the company has moved north.

Venmo has headquarters in midtown Manhattan, with plenty of sunlight and a Whole Foods across the street. We offer competitive salaries, benefits, and stock options.

Venmo co-founder Andrew Kortina has long resided in the 67th Ward though is often in Philadelphia and is supportive of the local startup and developer communities. Fellow co-founder and former director of technology at TicketLeap Iqram Magdon-Ismail’s Facebook page also lists New York City as his home.
