Careers at Penfold

What it's like to work with the team behind the award-winning digital pension.

A message from our founders

“We started Penfold because we've experienced the difficulty of engaging with pensions as savers, as self-employed workers and as employers who had to set up pension schemes for employees.

Peoples’ expectations for customer experience are defined by modern tech businesses. They're always innovating on what good looks like.

But, the pensions industry has not been able to keep pace. Old-school pension companies provide a terrible digital experience and customer service is difficult to engage with and jargon-filled. The end result is people are put off from engaging with their pension.

We're addressing the core technological problem at the heart of the industry by building a modern digital pension from scratch. We want to do what challenger banks have done for banking in the pension industry.”

Global Footprint: London and Tallinn

In Tallinn, we’re part of Europe’s most exciting tech scenes. Innovation thrives here amid picturesque settings, though you’ll need a warm coat for the chilly weather! Our Tallinn team is relatively new but rapidly expanding - a golden opportunity for newcomers to play a pivotal role in shaping the hub’s culture.

London is where Penfold’s journey began, a vibrant melting pot that perfectly mirrors our ethos. It’s here that our slightly more established team brings their passion for finance and fun to the table, fostering a culture that’s both diligent and delightfully spirited. This dynamic environment not only nurtures professional growth but also ensures a warm, inclusive community, making every workday both productive and enjoyable.

Whether in the tech-forward atmosphere of Tallinn or the bustling, diverse heart of London, our teams across these dynamic cities work in synergy, driven by a shared mission to revolutionise the pension industry. At Penfold, every location is a cornerstone of innovation and community spirit.
