Snapshot of Joyous

The mission at Joyous is to make life better for people at work.

The market opportunity ahead for Joyous

With the goal of making life better for people at work in mind, we focus on large enterprises. This means we can help improve the lives of a large number of people.

We've started out by targeting a few key industries in New Zealand, Australia, and the United States. As we continue to grow we will focus more broadly within those regions, as well as expand to other geographies.

In the developed world, there are over 290 million people who work in organisations of over 2,500 staff – our aim is to help improve the lives of as many of those people as possible.

Why Joyous is a great place to work

We are purpose-driven:
Joyous exists because of a desire to make the world better. Everything we do contributes to making the world a little better through our product, work with customers and publications.

We have an innovative approach to work:
We have developed our own unique way of working called Joyfully. Joyfully has helped our teams create a streamlined organisational structure, form a product strategy, and deliver meaningful chunks of work. Joyfully provides a thought-provoking alternative to Agile Scrum, Shape Up and other methodologies.

We have combined customer care, sales and marketing into one group, called Unified Customer. Customer overlaps with Product, which in turn overlaps with Engineering.

We have Joyful benefits:

  • Health Insurance & Counselling –Personal health insurance and access to free counselling to help you stay happy and healthy.
  • Joy Days –Six extra long weekends each year in March, May, July, August, September, and November. You get more paid time off to do the things that bring you joy.
  • The Joyous Parental Journey –A revolutionary parental journey benefit created by parents for parents.
