Remote, United Kingdom
Penfold is the challenger pension. We’re re-building the pension stack from scratch to drag a multi-trillion pound industry out of the dark ages. Our platform finally delivers a user-centric customer experience that helps everyone save for retirement, no matter their working circumstances.
We’re looking to take our product to the next level, scaling our existing pension business for the self-employed while launching Penfold for workplace to extending Penfold’s reach to the whole UK market.
Good design is a key strategic differentiator for our business and we’re looking for you to take a leading role in transforming Penfold into the market-leading pension app that really engages customers with saving for later life.
You will be the sole member of the design team (for now) and will work alongside product and engineering to help us grow from 10,000 customers to 50,000 over the next 12 months while rolling out Penfold for business.
As such, we imagine you are a natural leader and collaborator, an efficient, adaptable designer and someone who thrives in an autonomous environment. Your colleagues describe you as curious, motivated and humble.
Aside from owning the end to end design process, your role is to introduce processes and systems to create a home for design to thrive internally. You’ll create a design culture so that you can hire other designers—designers who consider joining in the future will be excited to see an environment where there is buy-in and support for design.

What you’ll get in return:
We’re working hard to create a working environment where people feel empowered to do their very best work, make a significant impact, end enjoy what they do.
We’re a team of 15 growing to 20 in the next couple months. As an early employee, you’ll have a huge say in defining our culture and what it’s like to work here. You’ll also have uncapped opportunities for progression, learning and exposure to different areas of the business. :
We mostly work from home at the moment but have a beautiful private office at Uncommon Borough, a large co-working space with all the good stuff (café, bike racks, showers, roof terrace, exercise classes, free drinks and more plants than a garden centre). Our policy during and after COVID will be fully optional between remote and office, and we will have semi-regular (e.g. monthly) get-togethers. We’ll get you all the kit you need for home working and stuff for the office too, so you can come in when you want to collaborate or socialise!
We are 100% committed to building a diverse and representative team. Whatever your race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability - we want to hear from you.
Our interview process consists of 3 Zoom calls, two with a Co-Founder and one with our Lead PM. There might be a 4th call to wrap things up but we can move quickly!
