The job

Communications Lead

  • Permanent contract 
  • Paris


We’re Spendesk, a FinTech SaaS Platform on a mission to take the hassle out of payments at work. We’re based in Paris but serve great teams all across Europe. We believe there’s a better way to manage team spend, and we’re building the platform to do just that. With Spendesk, employees can pay for what they need without creating more work for the finance team.

Spendesk was founded in June 2016 by eFounders, a startup studio in Paris. Drivy, Konbini, Dataiku, and Deezer were among our first customers, and now we’re proud to say we serve 1,000+ fast-growing companies.

We’ve raised two rounds of funding: €8 million came from European angels and VCs, just 12 months after we raised our first €2 million.

As a team, we’re driven by our values and our focus on big growth. We’re an ambitious, international group with 10 nationalities represented today. At the heart, we believe people do their best work when they’re giving freedom to create and grow. Thinking big, bringing a positive attitude, and taking full ownership are three characteristics that thread our team together.

Our tribe is growing fast. Come join us on this journey.

When we’re not coding, writing, demoing, and helping answer questions, you’ll find us eating sushi, playing Nerf war, traveling abroad, and finding excuses to dance in the office.

Our team values

  • Choose positivity
  • We’re all owners
  • Go for it boldly and without fear of failure.
  • Be kind, humble & trustworthy.
  • Proactively seek out ways to grow.
  • Always run the extra mile
