Where will I work?

You can work from any place you find engaging and comfortable. We are a remote team. Some of us travel regularly and you will see your team members connecting from cafes, bungalows and sun loungers.

Our team members are in Belgium, Canada, USA, Finland, Russia, Spain, Slovenia and the Netherlands. It does not matter which part of the world you live, if you are willing to help others be happier at work then you’ll fit into our team.


How much will I earn?

Your income will depend on your commitment level. Commitment level is a mix of efforts, time and value you bring to the team. It is up to you to decide what amount of work is fair for a level you choose. Your commitment level is not set in stone, you can change it monthly.

Salaries are calculated by a very simple formula: (base salary) x (commitment level)%. The current base salary is EUR 4200. If your commitment level is 40% your monthly salary will be EUR 1680. There are no location parameters, we believe you should choose where you want to work, without your income having to suffer. We also do not distinguish the role you play, you don’t have to fit into a box.

All our team members are freelancers or entrepreneurs working with multiple clients. Our commitment levels scale from 20% up to 80%, you choose the level which fits your situation.

You will also use a merit money system to share your appreciation of the work of your peers. Each month you will get 100 points to distribute amongst team members. When Happy Melly One shows profit, points are converted to money, which is paid at stages during the year.
