Our Story

Founded in 2015, Flare leads a new generation of Australian startups creating ripples within multiple industries. We’re a fast-growing and well funded B2B2C startup, and we’ve firmly established ourselves and embarked upon a solid growth trajectory to become the #1 Australian platform for HR, Payroll, and Employee wellbeing.

Flare delivers intuitive HR, cloud-based software to businesses (B2B), whilst enabling best-in-class solutions to aid financial wellbeing (B2C).  We provide our customers with amazing benefits & rewards, financial education and real-time financial decision-making support.

It's a win-win-win model for employers, employees and benefit providers.

Why work for Flare?

Because people work to make a living, Flare aims to create Australia’s first workplace bank: a single next-generation platform for people to manage their career and their money. Our formula is simple: combine best-in-class HR and payroll software that makes career management easy, with advanced financial wellness tools and services.

With hundreds of customers and tens of thousands of employees managed by Flare we are growing fast, but our size is dwarfed by our ambition.

Come join us at one of the country’s hottest startups to help realise our dream of making every workplace in Australia a great place to work, and every employee professionally and financially better off.
