Do your best work as your authentic self
Through shared values and initiatives that support our employees, we encourage a worklife that works for everyone. Your happiness—whether you're working, hustling or vacationing—is at the core of our company.
We make it happen
When Dax Dasilva founded Lightspeed in 2005, he rented the apartment above his office so he could be available at all times. No time was lost in transit while he climbed the staircase after every long day (and late night) and descended it every morning. With each step we take at Lightspeed, we get closer to our goal in reaching the top. Following in Dax’s footsteps, we make it happen.
We make it together
Like a boomerang, we send out market research and customer surveys and await their return before making a move. We listen to our instincts, but wait to make decisions until we’re guided in the right direction. For both external and internal decisions, we make it data driven.
We make it human
Lightspeed is energized by connection (and coffee). The kitchen is our meeting place where all corners of the office come together. We use this common space to welcome unique perspectives and to be our authentic selves. With a strong company culture, we make it human.
We make it about the customer
When we decide to jump off the diving board, we plan every step. From the walk up the ladder to our entry into the water—we maximize our impact. At Lightspeed, we are all decision-makers and act as a synchronized team. We make it matter when we think before we jump.
We make it data driven
We use technology and innovation to give independent businesses a new life. Reviving the retail and resto industry is at the core of Lightspeed’s mission. Inspired by the phoenix, we support our clients’ growth and nurture their success. We ignite the flame by making it about the customer.
We make it matter
At Lightspeed, our obstacles cross department lines and there is never a shortage of helping hands. When outages in 2015 had our support team under pressure, we all shared that weight and put out the fire. We win as a team when we make it together.
We're all impactful agents of change.
Lightspeed was founded on the principles of diversity and inclusion and our daily practices and interactions reflect this commitment. Whether inspiring, challenging, teaching or learning from each other– we are on a journey together to continuously evolve and elevate one another.
“At Lightspeed, we continuously strive to create an inclusive workplace where people from diverse backgrounds, identities and communities are all empowered to thrive as their authentic selves. We recognize and celebrate the many multifaceted dimensions of diversity that makes each of us unique, and we embrace our differences because we know they make us stronger, together.”
Claire Casey, Global Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Lightspeed
