I started in Scalapay as an Intern in the Sales Department, it was my first job experience. I had the chance to learn a lot about what's expected from a commercial role with a hands-on approach. Starting your career in a fast-growing start-up is a very formative experience. If you are looking to gain a 360° vision on how a company works, and going beyond what is expected, then you have come to the right place! I also had the chance to grow, both personally and professionally. On one hand, I had the chance to meet an amazing group of people who have accompanied me through my journey and through many Spritz Parties! On the other hand, after my internship I was hired as a Sales Executive and I am very excited to face the new challenges Scalapay has in store for me.
What makes Scalapay a great place is both its work culture and people. Everyone at Scalapay is encouraged to take ownership of their role, make an impact, learn, and be an amazing team member. This is all because of the autonomy that teams and individuals are given to be impactful. We focus a lot on collaboration and teamwork. As an example, in Engineering we have 8 Agile teams. Everyone gets together weekly to align, remove risks and dependencies. That's a lot of people and it's important that all of Engineering succeeds over individual teams. This is why one of our values is #playasateam.
I am delighted to be part of the Scalateam :I discovered Scalapay and instantly wanted to join and contribute to the growth of the company even though I had never worked in a FinTech before. I was looking for an opportunity to challenge myself in a new field: the world of payments. I met amazing people with great values. Everyone was eager to share with me how we could work together, what they were expecting of our new job relationship... but also, everything was made for me to understand the specificity of our professional sector which helped me feeling at ease quickly. After one month, I am enjoying a key point of my career in an attractive and enriching environment.
I joined Scalapay at the end of 2020, when we were around 20 people. I always get emotional looking back at that time and realizing how fast Scalapay has been growing since then: now we're more than 200! In the commercial team I had the chance to take part in the growth of our merchant base and the development of our commercial strategy. The opportunity to continuously build relations with new brands and people has definitely been the best part of my job, allowing me to learn something new everyday. At the beginning we used to ring a bell to celebrate new merchants joining Scalapay, now we don't do it anymore but I can ensure that the emotion is always the same, every time.
I am delighted to be a part of the Scalateam:
I've been in Scalapay for a few months now and I already feel like one of the family! There's a great culture and working environment; everybody is eager to help and the company doesn't stop growing. I do feel that being in Scalapay is a great place to learn and develop professionally.
