An Insider's view of Papaya Pay

What are some social events your company does?

We have a PapayaTalks series where coworkers present something unique and special to them. A non-exhaustive list of topics we've covered: bharatnatyam, birding, tequila+mezcal, taiwanese food, our school system, motorcycles, competitive online racing.

We also tried to start a band but it never got off ground. I'm sure every startup can relate.

How does the company support your career growth?

We have incredible access here at Papaya. I've been able to participate in mentorship programs through First Round Capital, get advice from people leaders at Sequoia, and network with bright minds in fintech. Being at a 40-person startup, I'm able to try new things and grow on the job with support from internal and external leadership.

Danielle

People Operations Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I believe that creative ideas can come from anyone. I've found that giving teams a high degree of autonomy after clearly spelling out goals and constraints leads to the best creative outcomes. Autonomy encourages them to be creative and a clear charter helps avoid analysis paralysis.

VP, Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm most excited about a collaboration with Product to figure out what cool new benefits we can offer new and existing users using a combination of quantitative and qualitative inputs. I'm also excited about the tools I'm building for our various teams to be able to streamline their day, helping them make better & faster decisions using data.
