Deel raises $425M for its hiring, compliance and payments platform

The solution eliminates remote hiring hurdles and supports over 120 currencies

Deel, a global compliance and payroll solution provider, has raised $425 million in a Series D funding round led by Coatue. A number of new and existing investors also participated in the round, including Altimeter Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, YC Continuity Fund, Spark Capital, and Greenbay Ventures.

The latest round of funding puts Deel’s value at $5.5 billion.This makes Deal the most valuable company in the global hiring, payments, and compliance sector.

Deel allows businesses to hire employees and contractors compliantly without a local entity. Furthermore, the platform offers support for more than 120 currencies, enabling companies to pay their global teams instantly.

“The way people work is fundamentally changing. And it’s never going back,” said Alex Bouaziz, Deel CEO

Bouaziz added, “We founded Deel because we didn’t want hiring or payments to prevent businesses from building the best global teams and finding the best global talent. We’re going to keep challenging the norms of how companies operate and continue building tools that shape the future of work.”

GDPR-compliant, Deel also lets businesses create, send, and sign data-protection agreements (DPA) through a centralized dashboard. Besides compliance, the firm also handles health insurance and pensions. 

Organizations can sync invoice data with desired accounting software, receive compliant digital invoices for every contractor payment, automate payslips, and more.
