ZenPayroll is on a long-term mission to modernize the payroll industry and connect companies with their employees in a more meaningful way. Today people think of payroll as a painful, tedious chore that forces businesses to deal with unnecessary complexity, manual tasks and numerous fees.
Compensation should not be an impersonal transaction. It’s about employers rewarding people for their hard work, and employees feeling appreciated for their contributions. Our team is striving to positively influence millions of businesses and hundreds of millions of employees around the world. That mission is a key reason customers love ZenPayroll.
ZenPayroll was founded by second-time entrepreneurs and best friends from Stanford University who have sold two prior businesses. Committed to building ZenPayroll for the long haul, the founders have assembled a talented team of product designers, engineers, and marketing professionals, as well as compliance experts with 30+ years of payroll experience. They care deeply about building a great product and creating a company they’re proud of.
