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 have over £5.5 million in funding and are backed by some of the world’s most
successful FinTech investors. We started by launching a simple and flexible pension for the self-employed and now have thousands of active customers and are growing at a phenomenal rate.
About the Role
Penfold have just launched our tech enabled alternative to traditional auto-enrolment schemes (think NEST, Aviva, People’s Pension). Employers can choose to enrol their team in Penfold’s pension. We believe that our technology (modern app and API payroll connectivity) makes the experience 10x better for employers and employees; but it’s not just the technology, Penfold provide a fully managed employee experience to help everyone understand their pension.
We already have some strong early market signs that there is a huge appetite for our product. Without any outbound sales we’re fully booked with meetings but we have huge ambitions to help everyone have access to an amazing digital pension.

Pre COVID we all worked from a private office at Uncommon Borough, a large co-working space full with all the perks and more plants than a garden centre.

We’ll buy you the kit you need to be comfortable at home too.
