We help fix that and we’re just getting started.

Industrial relations is complex. Automation is the smarter way to manage payroll compliance and verify employee entitlements. The Yellow Canary platform ingests payroll, timesheet and rostering data to calculate payment variances in line with awards, enterprise agreements and the superannuation guarantee. 

The YC team was established in 2017 and we are growing rapidly, primarily based out of Sydney and surrounds. Our platform serves some of Australia's largest employers, enabling them to get their wages and employee entitlements right, quickly. 

At YC, we're passionate about our products, innovating to do things better, and creating a work environment that values tenacity, respect, and a sense of fun. If that sounds good to you—then we hope you’ll join us!
