About The Company

Salsa is rebuilding the most important piece of the business stack: paying workers. We believe workers should be paid faster, more easily, and more transparently, so we're building next-generation payroll infrastructure to support the future of work.

Salsa is an embedded fintech company. We believe payroll should be built directly into the tools businesses already love to use, so we help other software platforms launch their own modern payroll products with our APIs and infrastructure. Turning every modern SaaS platform into a cutting-edge payroll provider will finally disrupt the $50bn of revenue that’s going to legacy payroll providers each year - and we think it’s about time.

We’re an accomplished team of payroll technology experts who love to build and have experience working on this problem at the startup stage and at large scale — in both the US and abroad. We’re well-funded, ready to grow, and love to work from offsites in exciting corners of the world, so bring your ambition and your passport.
