  • During my stint at Payboy, it has been nothing short of an amazing experience. Interning at Payboy has been one of the best decisions I made professionally. The comprehensive employee development plan and mentorship allowed me to build the technical foundation I have as a software engineer at my current job at UOB. If you are someone that takes challenges in stride, then Payboy will bring the best out of you by exposing you to plenty of opportunities.

    Of course, Payboy is not all about work - in fact, it’s their culture that captivated me. The camaraderie between every employee makes work so much more enjoyable since everyone is willing to show the ropes and learn with you. In fact, Payboy is very interested in your unique point-of-view of the challenges it faces and how the team can better solve them. Also, if you love to snack during work, their snacks corner is always filled with fresh goodies to keep you fueled during work.

    Don’t hesitate to give Payboy traineeship a go!

  • I entered Payboy as a UX Designer after graduating from Ngee Ann Polytechnic under the Startup Talent Factory Program. Even though I entered the company with little to no experience in this industry, Payboy created an environment where I could learn and explore comfortably. I was given many opportunities to explore different roles, and this helped me discover my interest in development, which led me to further my studies in a related course.

    Working at Payboy was definitely not easy. Being in a startup meant a fast working environment, however, the culture made up for it. Everyone is very warm, welcoming, and willing to help each other when needed. It is very heartening when we are all learning together and you know that you are not alone.

  • Back when I was a second year in SMU, I applied for internships with only a couple of basic programming courses under my belt. I really only knew the basics: loops and if-conditions, some idea of html and css.

    Working at Payboy changed my school life, and career trajectory. I’ve never met a group of people so welcoming, nurturing, and rooted in their belief in what they do - and if there’s one thing that Payboy loves, it’s their people.

    In my time at Payboy, I gained a year of valuable experience working hands-on on the codebase, learning the basics of web development, API design, frontend and backend frameworks, and software architecture. I was involved in end-to-end delivery, from gathering client requirements, to translating that into engineering tasks, to testing and deploying the finished product.

    I’m now a developer in the industry, and my time at Payboy was what made me choose this career path. I’m very confident that they have something incredible to offer to you, too.
