From celebrating work anniversaries, to hiring in a new location or starting out with a client, everyone comes together to honour these incredible milestones.
Since starting in 2016 with four banking and technology leaders, Form3 celebrates an amazing accomplishment of reaching 500 employees in over 26 different countries! You could say our remote-first environment has helped to make this possible - but a lot of time and effort has gone into hiring the best talented people to join our mission in becoming the world’s most trusted provider of payment technology.
Welcoming new employees around the world has been an exciting journey for Form3. As we welcome new hires to Form3 each Monday, we get the opportunity to learn about each individual as they share their specialism, background, and hobbies outside of work. We take pride in being a diverse and multicultural company so there is also always a period of excitement when we have the opportunity to meet our new colleagues, find out where they’re from, what interests them, and maybe some of their fun facts.
That being said, headcount growth is not easy, and in no way have we figured it all out. However, as a team, we work together to ensure each new starter has a smooth onboarding process, completes the necessary training and enjoys their first few weeks as they settle in at Form3. We are also committed to maintaining a work environment that makes Form3 such a great and unique place to work. From championing flexible working, promoting entry level hiring programmes and offering benefits such as a learning and development allowance, we strive to create a culture where our employees feel valued and are excited to start work each day.
Each member of the team, past and present, has contributed to the successful growth that Form3 has seen over recent years. This has allowed us to achieve our plans of expanding into new markets including Europe and the USA as well as winning some great awards such as ‘Payments Innovation of the Year’ at the FSTech Awards 2022, ‘Best Tech Employer’ at the Women in Tech Employer Awards 2022 and most recently CEO of the year by RemoteTech Breakthrough Awards 2022. Not only is it a great feeling to be recognised in such great strengths but it also highlights the contributions Form3 are making within the tech industry and that is all thanks to the hardworking employees we have in our team.
We are very excited to see what opportunities lie ahead for Form3 as we continue to create technological excellence and expand our geographic growth. We’re currently hiring to fill positions in our Finance, IT and Product teams so check out available roles here and join us on our journey!
