Mission

We share a vision.

Care deeply for customers & PayFiters

Every new employee joining our team shares the same goal: make our customers happy. Working with passion, as a team, coming in every day with a smile on their face, striving for excellence and over-performing: those are the key values embodied and conveyed by every PayFiter.

Design a user-friendly solution

Work should be a source of energy, not boredom. Our tool integrates complicated legal issues thanks to a user-friendly platform that manages payroll, tax payments, leaves, expenses, working hours time-tracking, etc. User experience is our priority. Our motto: easy, fast & friendly.

Build a powerful technology

Our engineering teams put all their efforts into building a powerful tool that takes into account labour laws and collective agreements. All this complexity is managed thanks to JetLang, our very own programming language created by PayFit, for PayFit. Each employee represents a unique situation, and each of these situations has its own complexities. We aim to deal with all of them. Everyone deserves the best.

Provide human expertise

Because technology is not always enough, we work with the best and brightest payroll experts to put the focus on humans. Our customers’ satisfaction is our one and only priority. We believe every problem has a solution.

Make dreams come true

Whether you are an employee, employer or HR manager, you dream of bringing all HR tools into one. We will not stop until your dream comes true.

Ghislain, Firmin & Florian

[Mission] Founders

How everything started

It all started in January 2015: after setting up a first company together in high school, Ghislain & Firmin knew they wanted to embark on a new entrepreneurial adventure together. A few months later, Florian came to complete the Dream Team. Thanks to their complementarity and long-lasting friendship, the three of them knew that achieving great things together was possible.


They sought to solve a universal problem: payroll management. In France, it had always been a complex and time-consuming topic. It was time to find a solution and for them it was obvious: you had to automate tasks related to payroll. After long working hours, the magic recipe of PayFit finally saw the light of day: JetLang, a unique programming language, created by PayFit, for PayFit, which today allows any non-developer to integrate all of a country’s social regulations on their own. Today PayFit serves 3000 SMEs in France, Spain, Germany and UK, has 230 employees located in their offices Paris, Barcelona, Berlin or London, and plans on transforming the daily work life of millions of SME’s employers and employees.

Team

Our Staff evolution.

The most attractive place to work.

From the beginning, PayFit takes care and pampers its employees in many ways. Creating a pleasant workspace, organising regular team building events, applying transparency at all levels, rewarding employees and highlighting their achievements, are all the actions set up to optimise performance, growth and the well-being of every one. We want employee experience to be the same for 500 players than for 50! Working at PayFit is a unique experience.

We surround ourselves with the best.

As soon as he/she joins our team, each new employee has the same goals: to make customers happy and build the best product ever. Work with passion, work as a team, come in each morning with a smile, want to always excel and seek excellence; these are the key values that each PayFiter embodies and transmits.
