Our mission

At Deputy we’re on a mission to change the way the world works. Since 2008 over 200 million shifts have been rostered on Deputy, in over 90 countries, and across 245 different industries.


The Bureau of Labor and Statistics reported over 80 million hourly workers comprising over 60% of the US workforce in 2017.  Global estimates are that hourly workers are 80 – 90% of the workforce.  Yet while hourly workers comprise such large majorities of the global workforce, there is a stark lack of software tools available today that directly address their needs.

We’re making it easier for businesses and teams to roster staff, manage leave, complete payroll and take the admin out of work so that our customers can focus on doing what they love. We hire amazing people to do what they’re best at, and work with some incredible businesses all around the world.
