The Philosophy

Swipely is headquartered in Providence, RI at the foot of Wickenden Street, one of Providence’s main streets filled with local merchants including awesome restaurants and cafes. Because Swipely helps local merchants track and grow revenue they work alongside their customers. Their brand pillars include:

  1. A transparent approach
  2. Learning more everyday
  3. Measuring performance
  4. Making data actionable

In terms of their space- Engineering, Marketing, Partner Success, Inside Sales and Business Development, and Finance work from headquarters. They also have a Sales Team that’s on the street in the city’s they serve: NY, SF, DC, BOS, and PVD. Engineers generally work 2 to a station and have recently raised their desks to be standing desks.
