About us

Thriday is a revolutionary new platform that combines everything a business needs to grow into one seamless and automated solution, which leverages AI & ML fed by a real-time stream of data. No legacy systems, no antiquated technology - just a fresh new approach that is completely serverless. Moving beyond microservices into nanoservices, in a highly scalable environment, we are already well beyond where most banks and fintechs are.

Thriday acts like a CFO in your pocket, providing the fastest way for small businesses to manage their banking, accounting and tax obligations, helping to win back time for busy business owners to plan for their future with real confidence.

We had a record-breaking capital raise, crowdfunding a greater amount than any Australian technology company on record with over 500 investors, including major VCs and many small businesses. We’re a highly organised and efficient startup, that is product-led and customer-led. If you care about building great products that can help people, we would love to speak with you!

At Thriday we really value our employees and strive to continuously provide the best benefits which we are constantly adding to:

  • Standard five weeks annual leave (25 days) per year. This gives you enough time to refresh, recharge and be your best self.
  • We offer an additional 5 days of “life leave” which can be used for when life gets busy (moving house, mental health days, menstruation days etc).
  • On recognised public holidays, you can choose another day off in lieu based on religious or ethical choice. That way you get to recognise the moments that matter most to you.
  • We provide free access to a professional and personal development coach for one-on-one sessions for up to 2 hours per month. It’s completely optional, and it’s up to you if, when and how you use it.
  • Take advantage of our $1,000 annual training and development budget. We want you to get the most out of your career.
  • Select from a curated list of 40 external mentors that can support your career goals.
  • Thriday has a flexible WFH policy but if you prefer coming into the office it is adjacent to the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne.
