Who are we? 🚀

PayFit simplifies payroll management and HR processes for SMBs. We have built a fast, intuitive and automated SaaS solution to help business owners and HR professionals save time and money allowing them to refocus and what really matters: their employees. Through PayFit, employees have a dedicated access for their payslips and are able to manage efficiently their leave and expense requests. To build such a solution, we have created our own programming language: JetLang. Thanks to JetLang we were able to code Labour Code and collective agreements, and today we continue to add new features.

We have set ourselves a mission to support the digital transformation of HR management through our ever growing range of product features and services. We have a strong presence in France since 2015 and have been quickly growing in Germany, Spain and the UK. More than 3500 companies such as Big Mamma, MinuteBuzz or Sellsy to name a few already trust us. Over 500 PayFiters have already joined the adventure and we have raised 95M€ to keep growing.

The team 💡

Payfit is seeking an experienced engineer to join the Foundations Tribe. We are responsible for improving and maintaining many core projects, how files are stored, retrieved and shared between Payfit users, identity and access management, validations rules and workflows to name a few. As part of the foundations tribe, engineers work on customer facing features and also are responsible of providing services (APIs, SDKs) that can be reused across the organization, so other teams at Payfit can better focus on their business domain and ship new features faster, by reducing effort on the foundational aspects of scale, security and back-up.
We are also responsible for some projects written in go, but prior knowledge is not a requirement. We value a deep understanding of complex systems architecture.
