An Insider's view of Payformance Solutions

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There are times we stay late to finish a project, but other times we all go out for a drink after work. Community Outreach events include beach clean-ups and most recently we went Axe Throwing! Friday is a lunch out day, we try to go to a different place every week. Office decorations for every holiday and always ways to get involved!


Project & Admin Coordinator

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Every morning we have a quick Stand-Up with all members of the company. This allows us to review what different teams are working on and how we can continue to work together more efficiently.
