We're a small but solid bunch of thinkers and doers who share one very important quality: whatever we do, we do it well.

From our engineers blueprinting the Paid platform to our designers bringing the Paid brand to life, we're all achieving a job well done.

Our values

At Paid, we do things differently.

  • Fairness

    Everyone's an expert in their own way. That's why we pay team members fairly, with everyone earning in accordance with a transparent framework, regardless of role.

  • Transparency

    We want everybody to be on the same page. That's why our company decisions are openly discussed, and we welcome thoughts, suggestions and opinions from every team member.
  • Shared Ownership

    Paid is working towards a brighter future and we want our team to share in its success. All long-term employees will have the chance to join our team share pot, making them Paid shareholders.

  • Equality

    Everyone in our team is treated equally, always. That's why we back flat holacratic management over a top down hierachy, giving people the power to self-manage instead.

Shot of the Paid team

People first

A happy team matters most to us, and we hope to achieve this through how we treat our employees. We realise that those working for us have honed their skill sets over time and are experts in their own field.

That's why we never (ever!) micromanage our team. Instead, we encourage peer-to-peer decision making which taps into every person's strengths: collaboration is everything.

And, because you should work from wherever works best for you, we let our team members decide whether to collaborate remotely or from a nearby meetup space.

Rewarding talent

Paid is proud to pay its employees significantly higher than average salaries.

This is because we want the very best talent out there and, when we find it, we reward it.

In return, we embolden each employee to make a big impact within the Paid team.
