Product Management Director | JetLang Platform

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 on what really matters: their employees. Through PayFit, employees have dedicated access to their payslips and are able to efficiently manage 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 4000 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.
