Our offices

Finding the space you need when you need it.

This is our definition of a working environment where everyone can flourish.

Responding to this desire has required us to rethink our offices, to make them more than just a place to work.

Today, we see them as places to concentrate, exchange, create, celebrate, relax, spend time and rest.

Offering this diversity of spaces means that everyone can work in the best possible conditions, according to their desires and pace.

Our founders

After creating a first company in high school, Ghislain & Firmin knew they wanted to embark on a new adventure together. A few months later, Florian arrived to form this inseparable trio. They knew that together they were capable of great ambitions.

They decided to tackle a universal problem, often considered complex and tedious: payroll management. For them, the solution was obvious: they had to automate payroll-related tasks.

After months of work, they created JetLang. This unique programming language, created by PayFit and for PayFit, now makes it possible to easily integrate all social regulations into our solution.

Today, Firmin, Ghislain and Florian wish to address a broader issue: how to make work a source of fulfilment for all?

Our team

No matter how many employees we have or how fast we grow, we want everyone's experience to be the same.

How did PayFit become a “work from anywhere” company?

Why has PayFit made employee fulfilment its number one priority?
