An Insider's view of Paro

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

I am trusted to my job and can the time I need to focus on myself. At Paro, we truly focus on promoting a culture of flexibility. Each month, take a company Paro holiday to recharge. In addition, the company offers unlimited PTO and flexible work from home.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As we our platform evolves, we rely a lot on our sales and account management teams for feedback. Since the product works both internally and externally it is important that these teams take feedback from our clients and freelancers as well. This allows for us to continuously iterate on the product before each release.

VP, Engineering

What are some things you learned at the company?

Finance and accounting can be really complicated and overwhelming, which can make it easy for businesses to ignore. Since joining Paro, I've learned how much value Paro brings to companies (in all industries) and freelancers. I love talking with business owners about how Paro can make an immediate impact!

Sales Development Representative

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

At Paro, we do Monday Morning Team Huddles and quarterly Town Hall Meetings to foster transparency. The goal is to give insight around where we're headed and why we're headed there. I'm a firm believer that transparency and communication foster new ideas and enable everyone to solve complex problems more efficiently.

Michael

CEO

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.
