LIFE AT SADAPAY:

The culture of any organisation is made through the values that its colleagues promote. .At SadaPay, our biggest asset is our people 💗 We hope that throughout their time at SadaPay, our employees grow through meaningful work as well as experience fulfilling friendships. We want our colleagues to go above and beyond for the company and one of the ways we try to enable this is by making SadaPay a second home to them 😄 

Our awesome line managers prioritise not just the company’s goals, but also the individual goals of each Sadanaut. 💪 We are family – a family where everyone has each other’s back! While we work tirelessly at our jobs, we also do our best to make sure each Sadanaut feels valued at the company.  Thus, from birthdays to anniversaries, we never pass up an opportunity to celebrate (and eat some cake 🎂).. In addition to this, our leadership does its best to be extremely accommodating to their team in whatever way they can.

We’re a remote first company. This means we give our employees flexibility within their work lives and also experience a lot of unstable internet connections during Zoom calls 😅  Given the current climate of the world, we prefer remote working for the safety and better productivity of our people. We don’t have fixed reporting hours because we believe in ownership and autonomy.  Since we work from various cities such as Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi, we always make sure to plan fun meet-ups anytime Sadanauts are in town. Whether it’s for sports, hikes or gaming, it’s always an amazing time when our colleagues from other cities are visiting. 

However, remote working comes in with its own set of challenges. To build that much-needed bond with one another, we host various engagement activities such as donut calls. These calls connect random colleagues with each other and they’re given a 15 minute time slot to talk about anything but work. Within our Slack workspace, we make sure to also include separate channels for sharing fun content, memes, photos of food and anything else that is stress-busting. 😊

Additionally, we arrange Lunch & Learn sessions every alternate Thursday. The aim of these sessions is for one Sadanaut to volunteer and share an inspiring learning experience while having lunch together on zoom. For coffee lovers, we also organize coffee sessions, where we get together on Zoom to drink our morning coffees and play online trivia. Having a growth mindset and an emphasis on learning is also extremely important to us. Since learning is a continuous process, we push our boundaries by offering a number of learning opportunities to Sadanauts. We have introduced an exclusive library on Notion (You can read more about how we use Notion within our workspace here) where Sadanauts are invited to share their preferences regarding their favorite books for others to benefit from. 🙏

Moreover, we strongly believe in building a diverse culture that makes our colleagues of different backgrounds feel respected and safe. 29% of our overall workforce are women. They are provided with a separate Slack channel for privacy and free space. Recently, we have introduced Lean In Circles for our women to inspire, learn and support each other through thick and thin. Additional emphasis has been paid to their security by ensuring free of cost pick and drop services. 👭

All in all, we are not your usual company. We are a family, the foundation of which stands on mutual care and respect.

CHARACTERISTICS OF SADANAUTS:

So now you know how we make our workspace different, but what exactly makes a Sadanaut different from your average employee? The main thing that sets us apart from the crowd is our willingness to take on new challenges and grow together as a team. Since we don’t see this as a typical job and more as a journey, we try to embody all the characteristics you need when you’re setting off for a journey. That includes being driven, being a team player, thinking outside of the box, being willing to fall and willing to stand up again. 

In addition to professional growth, we also view our time here as an opportunity to pursue personal growth. For this reason, we highly encourage critical feedback which we believe is one sure-fire way to bettering ourselves and succeeding. From good times to bad, each of us stands by the others’ side. We don’t only work to rise on an individual level, but also lift others with us💫

LEARNING FROM MISTAKES:

At SadaPay, we like to give our people the space to make mistakes with the knowledge that with a learning mindset, they’ll come out of their failures stronger and wiser. We believe that with a positive and growth oriented mindset, a lot can be learnt from failure. 

Another way we cultivate an environment where people can grow from their mistakes is by encouraging open communication with one another, regardless of your position in the company. We want Sadanauts to seek help, feedback and advice when they need it while also speaking up against anything they feel is hurting the company and it’s employees.  

ACHIEVING OUR GOALS TOGETHER:

We are so grateful to have extremely enthusiastic and talented employees who are our true assets to the company. Never losing sight of our mission, each of us polishes analytical, critical, and creative thinking skills through active communication, idea sharing and joint decision-making. We empower each other through trust, constructive feedback, essential mentoring, and last but not least, relentless optimism.

If all of this speaks to you and you think you can add value to a progressive and growth oriented environment like ours, then head on over to our Careers Page and check out our available job openings! We’re always looking to expand our rocketship with passionate individuals and we’d love to speak to you if you believe in our mission of making money Sada. 

We do not seek to maintain this culture — we seek to improve it. Every person who joins us helps to shape and evolve the culture further. We can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us and we hope this journey is empowering for every single Sadanaut 🙌
