    An Insider's view of Paro

    What projects are you most excited about?

    I'm most excited about making an impact on how we view learning as professionals. We’re developing an end-to-end training enablement solution for all the professionals in our network, with a training library that ranges from writing the perfect SOW to using emotional intelligence to build better relationships with customers.


    Senior Manager, Expert Training & Enablement

    What makes someone successful on your team?

    They never settle, take smart risks, and do the right thing (always). We look for people who align with our values, who work hard and love being part of a team, who aren't afraid to take on a lot and learn as they go, who are scrappy and resilient.


    VP of Growth

    What is your vision for the company?

    My career has shown how investments in people, technology, and operational excellence can drive marketplaces to new heights. At Paro, these investments have already pointed us towards more predictable growth. I'm excited to accelerate shaping the future of work as we scale our professional services marketplace.


    Chief Executive Officer

    How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

    Paro's remote first strategy exemplifies its mission to modernize employment options in the finance and accounting industry. The flexible work culture allows me to make it to preschool and daycare pick-up every day. The additional family time is important to me and something I really value.
