Why BVNK IS A MOST LOVED WORKPLACE®

Systemic Collaboration

EMPLOYEES COLLABORATE THROUGHOUT OUR COMPANY BY …

Given our globally distributed team, we harness the power of technology to collaborate: Slack, Google suite, Miro, coffee chats via Google Meets. In addition, we gather for our company wide all-hands meetings on a fortnightly basis to stay informed on key business updates and highlight various initiatives across teams. Employees are also encouraged to collaborate in-person at our London, Cape Town & Sofia offices, or through out-of-office team building activities.

Positive Vision of the Future

EMPLOYEES AT OUR COMPANY HAVE A POSITIVE VISION FOR THE FUTURE BECAUSE …

We are a Series A funded, profitable, hyper-growth startup led by a C- Suite team which has a successful track record in founding Fintech businesses. We have shown stability despite the ongoing crypto winter and are fully focused on our product mission which is unique and has innovation at the core of its vision. We are aggressively hiring a talented team on a global scale to support us in executing on our ambitious goals. We are transparent with the company’s OKRs that clearly outline the goals and priorities of each department and how they contribute to the overall company goals and our mission.

Company Respect

WE SHOW RESPECT AND ENSURE THAT ALL VOICES ARE HEARD AND IDEAS ARE VALUED THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY BY …

We include a Q&A session for employees at our company wide all-hands meeting where people have the ability to ask individual questions. We use public slack channels for the entire company to encourage engagement, knowledge sharing and ensure opinions and expertise are shared. An anonymous feedback tool has recently been launched for all employees to provide continuous feedback to promote development. This is a low ego environment which is curated intentionally at BVNK. Our management team encourages 1:1 sessions with the wider team to listen to the various voices at different levels.

Company Support / Killer Outcomes

WE SUPPORT OUR EMPLOYEES IN ACHIEVING THEIR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL GOALS BY …

We have a core pillar for continuous growth at BVNK. This is reflected in our annual learning and development budget for webinars, conferences, resources or courses that support the formal development of our employees. We have study leave available for those who pursue academic qualifications to focus on furthering their professional development whilst employed by BVNK.
We have manager-led performance reviews and plans for career development, and a strong focus on promoting internally to recognise employees for their growth and contributions. At the beginning of an employee’s journey, we encourage self-led career goals to be created which are supported by people managers to achieve them. In each of our offices, we offer books as part of our BVNK library initiative that focus on diverse topics from leadership, company culture to Fintech and startups.

Alignment of Values

OUR COMPANY’S VALUES ARE ALIGNED WITH OUR EMPLOYEES BECAUSE …

We hire intentionally in line with our values across the business. We present these at the forefront of our hiring process to ensure alignment between the candidate’s personal values and BVNK’s values from inception. We have established an effective performance review process that includes our values as behavioural markers and focuses on the importance of embedding these in our day to day and overall decisions and actions. We have incorporated a company value analysis into our all-hands meetings to drive further understanding of what they mean, highlight employees who embody the values and focus on the importance of how they contribute to BVNK’s culture.
