About us

ProFinda’s mission is to help change the world of work. This visionary work is fuelled by our talented, global team with diverse perspectives, backgrounds and experiences. Come join our adventure from leader to game-changer 

Mission

The right teams, the right opportunities, at the right time

We are pioneering a new B2B category which we call Workforce Optimization. ProFinda defines WO as ‘aligning the missions of your business with the desires of your workforce.’

Our mission is nothing less than to continue pioneering the skills and optimization agenda, to transform the world of work, to help every employee achieve their full potential, to eliminate bias, and help ensure we all have fun doing it!

Vision

ProFinda however holds an even higher mission. As a purpose-driven organization, our vision is even more ambitious than helping to transform the corporate world and millions of careers. Our new breed of optimization and AI can be applied to any supply chain around the supply and demand of people, work and opportunities.

We see this as a game-changing innovation, driving new intelligence and efficiencies into the heart of every organisation, network and NGO on the planet.

As such, ultimately, our wider mission is to leverage and donate our IP to transform the experiences of disadvantaged communities, climate change networks, anti-slavery charities, NGOs, refugee causes, and many more.

Our dream is to positively impact the lives of over 3.1 billion people. This number represents the working population of the world. We are committed to ensuring we help create opportunities for all, driving equality across all societies. Hence ProFinda’s greater mission is to “democratize knowledge to unlock the potential of humanity”.

We’re very proud of this work and are deeply grateful for our teams, partners, amazing clients and wider support networks, all helping us drive this mission forward.

Our Values

At ProFinda, we know that a great culture is something that develops naturally on the back of strong, clearly defined company values and leadership. This culture is what motivates and retains talented employees. Our values are true to ProFinda and are reinforced among our employees daily, translating to a culture that makes the entire team proud.

We’re a purpose-driven company, engaged and excited about the work we are doing.

We know good ideas come from everywhere, so we work to ensure every person feels safe to take risks and think outside of the box. You will get a responsible role in an ambitious team, at the forefront of our rapid growth.

We operate based on trust. We are proud of the company's autonomy and work based on flexible hours. We care about the results, not harsh deadlines.

We are committed to transparent and great communication, and patient self-driven attitudes. We're not big on meetings, but we love innovation, agile thinking and solution mindsets.

We move quickly so you’re constantly learning and things never get stale. You will have plenty of opportunities for personal growth and development.

We value a daily work + life balance.

Diversity & Inclusion

At ProFinda, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion live as part of our core values. Both inside ProFinda and for our clients. Inside ProFinda our leadership team is 50% female, and 50% women across our operations. It’s how we seek to inspire and create an open-minded nurturing workforce, where our employees feel comfortable being themselves.

We know that creating diverse and empowered teams is a fundamental component to our success and this success can only be achieved by a collective of people with different backgrounds, experiences, personalities, talents, ideas and opinions. Our clients also take our technology to ‘power’ their DE&I agendas. So we are very proud to be living the vision we also innovate and market.

We are committed to hiring fantastic, innovative team players.

If this sounds like you, you will find ProFinda a wonderful fun new home!
