Hi, we’re Penfold
Penfold is building the pension of the future. We’re dragging the multi-trillion pound pension industry out of the dark ages. Think about how challenger banks have changed banking. We’re demystifying pensions, to make them universally accessible, engaging and exciting so we can help everyone save enough for later life.
We have over £15 million in funding and are backed by from some of the world’s most successful fintech investors & entrepreneurs.
We are an FCA regulated pension provider, offering tens of thousands of consumers a totally digital pension experience via our mobile app, helping hundreds of businesses run their workplace pension, and tracking down hundreds of millions of pounds in lost pension pots for all our customers.
We’re looking for a Product Manager to help us revolutionise the pensions industry and make it work for every saver in the UK.
As the second hire in the Product Team you’ll have huge autonomy, working directly with a team of talented engineers and designers to create great products that customers love, and all in one of the last industries in the UK to be disrupted.
You’ll own the full product lifecycle, identifying problems to solve or places we can create value, defining and validating possible solutions and then working with engineering to take them to market. You’ll ship fast and learn quickly, iterating towards product/market fit and using data to measure performance.
Nice to haves:
Ultimately, we’re looking for smart, hardworking & energetic people who get stuff done & are committed to contributing to a great team. So, if you’re excited about what we’re doing, get in touch – definitely don’t be put off if you don’t tick every box!

We’re a remote first business although we have a large private office at Uncommon Borough, a large co-working space full of other awesome tech start-ups and more plants than a garden centre.
Uncommon has their own exercise studio for free weekly Yoga and HIIT classes, a discounted office masseuse & beauty squad, monthly drinks & Tuesday teatime, bike racks, showers, an excellent café, and a whole bunch of communal spaces you can work from when you need a change (including a roof terrace).
Our application process
We’ll have a very quick introductory call to properly introduce you to Penfold, find out more about your experience so far and career aspirations, and make sure you get a chance to ask any questions you might have.
Then there will be be a ‘take-home task / role-play exercise’ so we get a better feel for how you work. And finally, we’ll organise a session with one of our Co-Founders and a small group of people from around the business.
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. If you have questions about the role or the company or the interview process, please let your recruiter know and we’re happy to answer these anonymously if that makes you feel more comfortable.
