Do you want to help us shape what the future of work will look like and how it will best embrace our life's aspirations? If this sounds like a journey you want to embark on, we may have the right role for you!
PayFit is an intuitive cloud-based payroll and employee management solution designed specifically for SMBs. Since 2015, we have set ourselves a mission to simplify payroll for SMBs and enable employers and employees to grow together. We are a European company operating from 3 main countries (France, Spain, and the UK) where we are supporting over 10,000 clients. 

Creating a fulfilling work environment and culture is also a core mission at PayFit, and our day-to-day work philosophy is reflected in our four values:
We genuinely care for others whoever they are, whatever they think.
We aim to improve and achieve better results every day.
Staying humble and exchanging transparent feedback helps us to grow and improve.
We are the architects of PayFit's success.

A key part of our culture, and essential for our success, is also improving the diversity of our teams and building an inclusive culture where you can be yourself at work. 

This is why our recruitment focuses on the skills you demonstrate, and not only on your academic background or previous professional experiences. At PayFit we understand that you can gain applicable skills through a variety of life experiences and we are interested in knowing them, too.

About the role :

PayFit is on a journey to evolve from a monolithic low-code platform (aka JetLang Platform) toward a more decoupled/distributed platform embracing event-driven and following the principles of DDD to better serve our customers.

You will be a senior player for the Company and Employee Experience Tribe. As a Global Team at PayFit, this Tribe is responsible for Admin onboarding experiences from configuration to first Payroll.

Your mission will be to:
- Be part of a product team (Design, Engineering, and Product) to define issues to solve and develop high-value features
- Drive the evolution of our architecture and system (DDD, system design, event-driven architecture, event sourcing)
- Promote software development best practices and foster technical excellence (clean code, low-complexity, maintainability, observability, well tested and documented, scalability, security and privacy by design) 
- Own all the areas of the team's projects back-end, front-end and infrastructure
- Mentor team members and lead cross-functional initiatives
