    Paddle’s Harrison Rose on Building a Great Culture at Scale

    Paddle’s Harrison Rose on Building a Great Culture at Scale

    In episode 19, I had a down-to-earth conversation with Harrison Rose, Co-founder and Chief Customer Officer of Paddle about what it takes to build an incredible 'company culture' as the company scales.
     
    As Paddle rapidly grows, its goal is to be the best place to work in London, England. To show they're serious about this they've gone to extraordinary lengths to make their employees happy including giving every team member access to mental health coaching, running mindfulness sessions at lunch, and providing every non-technical member of the team free coding lessons (to name a few).
     
    For those not familiar with Harrison, he began working in software at the age of 16 while still in school. At 18 he co-founded Paddle, leading the go-to-market and commercial efforts, with revenues tripling each year since launch which has made Paddle one of the fastest growing software companies in the UK according to Deloitte Fast 50.
