An Insider's view of DailyPay, Inc.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

If you like a collaborative vibe, DailyPay will be for you. Some of us put the noise cancelling headphones on and work while some of us pair up to work on a hard problem. The open office not only brings in light but also helps us work out tough problems together.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

DailyPay has done a great job making it easy to work from home during the pandemic. I have the pleasure of working with integration and partnership managers and many other teams daily. Outside of scheduled calls everyone is happy to collaborate via Slack or offer time on their calendar. This is all part of what makes DailyPay a great place to work!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started in a role that was the first of its kind here and truly had the opportunity to set the bar and create my own path. Now, I'm working with the Marketing Director to build out a brand new group within our department and focusing more on strategy while training new team members and setting them up for the same growth that I've experienced.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

By emphasizing the need to use our entrepreneurial creativity to unleash the firm’s potential. In a nutshell, I have divided the objectives of the capital markets team (CMT) into two distinct categories. The spark of every new CMT Initiative is the creative entrepreneurship to address a challenge DP faces by using our Capital Markets toolbox.”

Ghani

How does the company support your career growth?

I started my career at DailyPay a little over a year ago as an Office Manager, and just one year later I was promoted to the Employee Experience and Culture Manager. I am very grateful to work for a company that gives me the tools I need to advance in my career and for leaders that are genuinely interested in my success.
