We know that paying bills isn’t fun. At Papaya Pay, we work tirelessly to help make that experience better. With our app, users can snap a photo of any bill and it’s paid - no more calls, mailing checks, or tedious web forms. 

If you enjoy building an environment and culture where employees love coming to work every single day, and want to be a part of changing how people pay their bills, then we need your help. 

As Office Manager, you will create an outstanding work environment for our team, support our executives, and juggle the daily operational needs of an office. You will ensure that every facet of our workspace is functional, well-equipped, and fun! 

Teamwork, flexibility, communication, and a willingness to learn are of the highest importance. Papaya believes that diversity helps build an inclusive culture where all team members can grow, contribute, and feel valued. If you agree, we’d love to hear from you!

Some things you would be doing: 

  • As the main point of contact for general office and employee needs, represent Papaya with a friendly and positive attitude 
  • Support our co-founders with calendaring, schedule management, travel coordination, and other ad-hoc requests
  • Manage office operations and maintenance; liaise with building management and vendors to ensure our facilities are safe, efficient, equipped with office supplies, furniture, and snacks
  • Manage office IT systems; provide troubleshooting support, manage the office calendar, slack channels, and other shared tools like G-Suite
  • Organize office activities and events, as well as develop and implement other employee engagement initiatives that foster a welcoming culture for our team

We’d like to hear from you if you are: 

  • A Problem Solver. You can handle a million things at once and instead of saying “No,” you say, “Let me find out!” You work hard to make sure everything falls into place as seamlessly as possible.
  • Detail-Oriented. From anticipating what supplies need to be ordered to making sure the lights are switched on every morning, you will be obsessed with the little things that contribute to an awesome workplace. 
  • Resourceful. You’re a self-starter. You love doing research, are adaptable, creative and think on your feet. 
  • Experienced. You have at least 3 years experience in an Office Manager or Executive Assistant role at a startup. You understand how to operate with a high sense of urgency, and have a strong track record managing multiple projects at once. 

We’d be especially excited if you have previously been the first Office Manager at a high-growth startup. If you have experience with implementing proactive processes to keep headquarters organized and efficient, don’t forget to mention it.

An Insider's view of Papaya Pay

What are some social events your company does?

We have a PapayaTalks series where coworkers present something unique and special to them. A non-exhaustive list of topics we've covered: bharatnatyam, birding, tequila+mezcal, taiwanese food, our school system, motorcycles, competitive online racing.

We also tried to start a band but it never got off ground. I'm sure every startup can relate.


Operations Specialist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a startup, all members of our team are in constant collaboration. With an open floor plan and friendly team, we are often helping each other or spitballing ideas. In business development specifically, we work closely with the marketing and customer success teams in order to understand and convey our services to prospective clients.


Account Executive

How does the company support your career growth?

We have incredible access here at Papaya. I've been able to participate in mentorship programs through First Round Capital, get advice from people leaders at Sequoia, and network with bright minds in fintech. Being at a 40-person startup, I'm able to try new things and grow on the job with support from internal and external leadership.


People Operations Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I believe that creative ideas can come from anyone. I've found that giving teams a high degree of autonomy after clearly spelling out goals and constraints leads to the best creative outcomes. Autonomy encourages them to be creative and a clear charter helps avoid analysis paralysis.


VP, Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm most excited about a collaboration with Product to figure out what cool new benefits we can offer new and existing users using a combination of quantitative and qualitative inputs. I'm also excited about the tools I'm building for our various teams to be able to streamline their day, helping them make better & faster decisions using data.
