How we work
LaterPay has around 50 people spread over 13+ countries in time zones from UTC-8 to UTC+2. We’re a distributed team, though we have offices in Munich (DE) and New York (US). 

We care more about the things you do than your presence at a chair at a desk at 9am every day. That said, most of us work Monday - Friday from 8ish UTC to 5ish UTC, and ideally you’ll overlap at least 4 hours with our European team in the afternoon. We try to be as asynchronous as possible, but still feel that we need some “synchronicity” to work well.

We value trust, ownership, collaboration, transparency, respect and inclusion. We’re proud to have employees from many different nationalities, genders, ages, backgrounds, educations, and races.  We believe that intentionally assembling a diverse team is not only the right thing to do, but also necessary to build a product that works for and appeals to an audience that faithfully reflects our communities and our shared planet.
