Updated over a week ago

At Shakepay, we believe the widespread adoption of bitcoin as the monetary standard will profoundly change how we save money for the future, and through this cultural change we will usher in a period of human flourishing.

It's a financial renaissance. To the Bitcoin golden age!

Our Cultural Values

  1. We act honourably

    We respect others and ourselves. We tell the truth and hold ourselves to the highest ethical standard. We expect the same from others.

  2. We're doers, not talkers

    Our default is to get things done. We believe a small team of missionaries is powerful and we all punch above our weight. We believe that success lies in execution, not in politics.

  3. We care about the best ideas, not titles

    We invite discussion around decisions, allowing the best ideas to make their way through. Titles are meaningless in decision-making.

  4. We're cockroaches

    We obsess about worst-case scenarios. We take strict measures to ensure unwanted outcomes never arise. We never die.

  5. We're helpful

    We volunteer to help when our team is under fire and we’re not afraid to ask for help when we’re stuck. We don't 'get back' to customers when they have an issue, we take it upon ourselves to solve it for them. We put the success of others and the team before our own.

Working At Shakepay

  1. Equity Benefits
    We believe everyone at Shakepay should benefit from building a generational company, so every shaker owns stock options.

  2. Get Paid In Bitcoin
    You can choose to take a percentage of your salary in bitcoin. Whether you opt for some or none, the choice to be paid in the hardest, soundest money the world has ever known is yours.

  3. Remote Friendly
    With a flexible schedule, you can work on your own time, from home or anywhere. And if you're close by, you’re welcome to work in our Montreal or Toronto offices whenever you want. Being a remote-first company is awesome, but there’s value in spending time with your teammates and deepening these bonds. So, each shaker is entitled to 15 days of travel and accommodation to any Canadian city each year, covered by Shakepay.

  4. Generous Vacation
    Time off is essential, and we highly encourage it. We trust you to take as much as you need, when you need it. Every team member is expected to take at least 20 days of vacation each year. To help make sure you do, after taking 20 days, shakers receive a $1,000 bonus to put towards their next vacation.

  5. Insurance Coverage
    We offer health, dental, paramedical, disability, life, and travel coverage so you're always at your best. On top of our insurance coverage, all shakers also get access to a health and wellness spending account.

  6. Personal Development
    It's a marathon, not a sprint. We're here to help you define and hit your personal career goals so that you can get where you want to be. To support our team, every shaker gets a $2,000 yearly budget to spend on learning and development.

  7. Working From Home
    Working from home should be comfortable. Every shaker gets $1,200 to spruce up their home office and a monthly stipend for home and internet expenses.

  8. Self-sovereignty
    The path to self-sovereignty means being in full control of your coins. We offer a budget for shakers to get a self-hosted wallet and to build a self-hosted node.
