An Insider's view of Afterpay

How does your team reward individual success?

Our People team created a recognition survey so as a manager, I can see how each individual on my team prefers to receive recognition for a job well done. This is snacks for some, time off for others. At a fast-growing, hyper-dynamic organization like Afterpay, our teams are working at speed. Sharing even little forms of rewards goes a long way.

Alison Meyer

Industry Marketing Director

What does your typical day look like?

The thing I love most about my job is that there is no typical day. It's usually a mix of cross-functional meetings, customer interviews, making presentations, reviewing product requirements, analyzing and interpreting data, interviewing candidates for roles at Afterpay, and planning what will be on our Product roadmap in the coming months.

Sunil Parekh

Director of Product, Consumer Experience

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success here is to have ownership of your projects. This means responsibility, being proactive in moving projects forward, collaborating across teams, and knowing projects inside out, from implementation details to business impact. It's being curious, creative, motivated, and tenacious. It’s awesome to see your work impact customer experience.

Jose Picado

Software Engineer

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

I believe in an open-door mindset, which is one should be always available for being reached out. With full transparency of my schedule, I'm clear that my calendar is always up-to-date so they should feel free to book any time slot. I am also active on our communication channels. When not available, I always give an estimation when I'll reach back.

Han Qin

Director of Engineering

How does the company support your career growth?

My managers have been extremely thoughtful and great listeners. They’ve helped steer my roles and responsibilities in a way that adds value to the company and also supports my personal goals and career growth.
