smallcase Offers Remote Work, Flexitime, WFH Allowance to Staff

Employees of smallcase, the capital markets-focused fintech startup, will now enjoy more flexibility and work-life balance. Keeping the best interest of its employees in mind, the Company, which is opening its offices for its fully vaccinated employees, has announced a 90 percent work from home option for the staff, with immediate effect. That means, they will be required to come to the office only for 15 working days (not necessarily consecutive days) every six months, or a total of 30 working days in a year. Employees will also receive a remote-working allowance of Rs 25,000. Vasanth Kamath, CEO and founder, smallcase, believes that “the type of company culture nurtured in the office plays an integral role in business success”. It takes several elements, in combination, to “create an intangible ecosystem where people can work to the best of their capabilities and creative skills”, says Kamath.

Realizing that the essential elements, such as “value, ethics, expectations, goals, workflow, task management, collaboration, feedback, and time management have to come together to create a positive, productive ambiance” where employees can perform their best, smallcase has taken this step to further its “employees first” motto. In August, smallcase — which is focused on building investment products and platforms that enable individual investors to participate in the capital markets — had announced a $40M Series C funding led by Faering Capital with participation from new investors, Amazon & Premji Invest, and existing investors including Sequoia Capital, Blume Ventures, Beenext, DSP Group, Arkam Ventures, WEH Ventures & HDFC Bank.
