Otta's take on Paddle

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Software as a service (SaaS) is becoming the dominant way for new companies to sell their products. However, there are a number of interlinked tasks to build a great business. For example, setting up trials and licences, insights and analysis, payment gateways, taxes and internationalisation.

Paddle offers SaaS companies a completely different approach to their payments infrastructure so that fast growth companies don't need to deal with this complicated puzzle. Instead of assembling and maintaining a complex stack of payments-related apps and services, it acts as a Merchant of Record for customers, taking away the pain of payments fragmentation.

The company are now serving over 3000 software sellers in 245 territories globally. With backing from investors including FTV Capital, Kindred, Notion, and 83North, Paddle are setting out to define the next wave of B2B SaaS leaders.

Diversity & Inclusion at Paddle

  • As we start to increase our hiring efforts around the world, we want to share our story that we partner with some amazing companies and helping them grow is our primary ambition. Creating the next influx of Paddlers who understand our mission in helping others succeed is true to who we are
  • Scaling businesses is hard - and we have just refreshed our company values and behaviours in readiness for this. Using this as an opportunity to really define our culture will allow us to become a destination employer in how we work with each other and customers. We are really excited to launch these as this has been a real team effort across Paddle to design these values that will be fit for the future
  • We want to increase the opportunities for under-represented Paddlers - we are going to partner with third parties to widen our talent pools, and how we create opportunities internally for when new Padders join to give access to further careers and growth
  • We’re already proud of the strides we’ve made around gender balance, especially at manager/leadership level and have a rich population of non British employees. Like most companies in our sector there is still much work to be done, but we’re ready and excited to bring about positive change
