Who are we? 🚀

PayFit simplifies payroll management and HR processes for SMBs. We have built a fast, intuitive, and automated SaaS solution to help business owners and HR professionals save time and money allowing them to refocus and what really matters: their employees. Through PayFit, employees have dedicated access to their payslips and are able to efficiently manage their leave and expense requests. To build such a solution, we have created our own programming language: JetLang. Thanks to JetLang we were able to code Labour Code and collective agreements, and today we continue to add new features.

We have set ourselves a mission to support the digital transformation of HR management through our ever-growing range of product features and services. We have a strong presence in France since 2015 and have been quickly growing in Germany, Spain, and the UK.
