We need to ask employees of SAPI how satisfied they are with flexible working before we verify the company FlexScore® and compile employee satisfaction ratings

Based on 15 employee responses

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options SAPI provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure SAPI is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.

Employee reviews

SAPI's employees have anonymously had their say in what they think of the company

What I love the most about the company is its mission, the hard work the founders are pouring into it, and the work environment comes last.

I've thoroughly enjoyed working at SAPI. My colleagues come from different backgrounds and cultures. I've learned a lot from a professional perspective, but also had the chance to get to know people I would've otherwise never met!

About us

An embedded lending solution for our platform partners. SAPI builds, tailors, funds and manages custom loan programmes for platforms, enabling them to offer fast and attractive business financing for their merchants.

Our mission is to drive the growth of small businesses worldwide

We aim to empower them with financial solutions tailored to their unique needs. We believe in fostering a thriving ecosystem where small business owners can flourish, contribute to economic development, and achieve their fullest potential.

Flexible working at SAPI

SAPI prioritizes autonomy and flexibility through our hybrid and flexible work policy, fostering an environment where everyone can thrive.

🏢 One day per week in the office

As a lean and agile business, we take pride in relying on effective collaboration. While we value the flexibility of working from home, we strongly believe in the benefits of weekly in-person meetings for enhanced collaboration and relationship building. We expect everyone to attend the office one day a week. If you prefer more office time, feel free to come in as often as you like – our doors are always open!

⏰ Flexible hours

Recognizing the evolving nature of a typical workday, we acknowledge individual preferences for peak productivity. We encourage flexibility, allowing employees to work when they perform best, while ensuring connectivity and availability during core hours (11 am - 4 pm in the UK). For colleagues in different time zones, we support asynchronous collaboration, emphasizing mutual understanding of time differences.

🌴 Fully remote work allowance

Whether fueled by a passion for travel, the longing for connections abroad, or the practicality of managing home projects, here at SAPI we're keen for you to benefit from working remotely. We also understand the importance of personal space and the need for rejuvenation. That's why we grant full freedom for remote work for up to 6 weeks annually. Simply inform your manager in advance, ensuring clear communication about your remote work plans.

Approach to diversity & inclusion

At SAPI, we are steadfast believers in the transformative power of diversity and inclusion. Our commitment to fostering an inclusive workplace is not just a policy; it is an integral part of our daily ethos.

Our team is a tapestry of nationalities. Emphasizing gender equality, more than a third of our company comprises talented women, and over half our team represents various ethnic backgrounds. Our leadership team, which consists of five dedicated members, is reflective of our commitment to diversity. It boasts two dynamic female leaders – our CEO and Head of People hailing from Vietnam and Romania, while our CCO and CTO bring their expertise from Belgium and Poland, respectively.

Every day, we honour equity and diversity and inclusion, and actively seek out varied viewpoints, recognizing that this approach is fundamental to our continual growth and evolution.
