Join Us in Helping Small Businesses.
We’re on a mission to create an easier, smarter, and more affordable way for small businesses to get paid, and we need talented people like you to do it.
Be Part of Our Vision.
We’ve got big goals for the future, including building a platform that allows businesses to run their entire organization from one place. When you join the Helcim team, you can see how your work makes an immediate impact on small businesses. One day, every new business will begin with an idea and a Helcim account. Join us and help make them happen.
Our core values are the foundation behind our decisions, actions, ideas, and thoughts. They form our identity and keep us connected – we stick to what we think is right over what is easy and, as a result, we've attracted like-minded people full of passion, integrity, and talent.
We Are Builders
We build things ourselves, and we build them well. We use technology and our creativity to overcome challenges that would seem beyond our size. We invent our way out of problems, improve what is already there, and we never stop dreaming of better.
We Are Trustworthy
We earn trust by striving to be our best selves and lifting those around us. We recognize that trust is hard to earn, easy to lose, and tested continuously over time, so we make trust our way of life.
We Choose the Harder Path
We believe that the right decisions are usually the harder ones. We embrace the challenge and endure when others quit. We choose what is difficult and make ourselves resilient so we can persevere.
We Are a Company of Many
We are stronger because of our collective passion, intelligence, and fellowship. We believe great teams can accomplish great things, and we ask the very best of each other. Together we create our future.
