About us

For far too long, pensions have been difficult to understand. PensionBee makes pensions simple so you can look forward to a happy retirement. Founded in 2014, we are a leading online pension provider in the UK. Since April 2021 we have been listed on the LSE, which has accelerated our growth.

Whether you want to get on top of your old pensions and combine them into one new plan, drawdown hassle free from the age of 55 or start a new pension, as a leading online pension provider, we’ve helped over 500,000 registered customers to become pension confident.

PensionBee is growing at scale and we need an experienced product copywriter to help us amplify our mission and vision of making pensions simple, so that everyone can look forward to a happy retirement.

The role

Pensions are often thought of as complicated and boring, but we wholeheartedly disagree! Can you help us change the narrative and make pensions simple and engaging? We’re looking for someone with a passion for our mission, who will relish finding new ways to explain the simplicity of our product to consumers. The Product Copywriter will sit within the Brand and Communications Team, and report into the VP Brand and Communications.

Key responsibilities

  • Improving user experiences by creating useful, meaningful content that helps consumers plan for a happy retirement
  • Creating compelling UX copy
  • Ensuring cohesive product narratives across multiple platforms and touch points, including our website and app
  • Working closely with internal stakeholders including designers, researchers, marketing and product managers

Requirements

The key abilities we are looking for are as follows:

  • Minimum 2 years’ experience of user-focused product writing
  • Excellent written and verbal communication
  • Proofreading skills and exceptional attention to detail
  • Strong knowledge of online technology and related products, including web and mobile UI and tools
  • Familiarity with user experience research principles and practices
  • A passion for creating content and spreading the PensionBee story

Benefits

  • 25 days annual leave, 5 extra days for parents of children under 18 and generous Maternity, Paternity & Adoption Leave.
  • Perkbox, UK Healthcare Cash Plan and Income Protection Insurance
  • Regular company-wide sessions: CEO Session, Show & Tell and Lunch & Learn, giving you an opportunity to share your ideas and learn about other areas of the business
  • Regular socials: Cross-team brunches, Book Club, Pub Quiz, Parties and more!
  • A warm and motivated team working to make a real difference for our customers

A word on COVID…

Like many employers, PensionBee has moved most of the team to work from home, with a small group of people in the office carrying out essential tasks. Since September 1st 2020, we have allowed people to choose whether to be office-based or fully remote, and set up hot-desks in the office to accommodate those remote workers that want to visit the office for (socially distanced) face-to-face interactions. At time of writing, the majority of the team are still fully remote.

PensionBee’s office is COVID-secure, and we will continue to monitor Government guidelines on appropriate working arrangements.

About us

For far too long, pensions have been difficult to understand. PensionBee is on a mission to fix things – by making pensions simple and engaging. We do this by helping customers move into a modern, mobile pension with PensionBee. Since starting out in 2015, we’ve built the UK’s fastest growing and most loved pension brand. From a clear and simple transfer journey, to human support when only a human will do, we’re forever fighting for our customers!

PensionBee has an opportunity for a mid-level full stack web developer to join our 12-strong engineering team, crafting solutions serving both the business and customers. This role is an opportunity to exercise the skills you love whilst building your responsibility and influence in a small and connected company. We run multidisciplinary teams using Agile development practices, and offer developers the opportunity to experience a wide range of projects.

Key Responsibilities

  • Working across multiple projects in a variety of technologies, to deliver value for our customers and the business
  • Reviewing the work of other developers as part of our quality control process, and spreading best practices within the team

Requirements

The key attributes and experience we are looking for are as follows:

  • Love for the quality of your work and attention to detail
  • Able to work well in a multidisciplinary team, collaborating with designers, other developers and business analysts on projects
  • Competence using technologies relevant to modern web development (see below for examples)
  • Confidence with good practices, patterns and techniques in software development, but also a love of learning and personal development
  • Clear written and spoken English

Technologies we use

It is useful to have some experience or interest in these, but we are more interested in your ability than specific experience:

  • Node.js
  • HTML / CSS / JavaScript
  • React & React Native
  • Salesforce / Apex
  • SQL and no-SQL databases (Postgres / MongoDB)
  • Heroku / AWS

Equal opportunity

We welcome all candidates and are proud to have been awarded Employer of the Year at the Financial Adviser Diversity in Finance Awards 2020. We believe the right drive is often more important than the relevant experience or degrees. So if you have an interest in the role and are passionate about what we do, get in touch.

We want everyone to be able to access the same opportunity, and some people might need extra support to have this access. If there’s an adjustment we can make that would help you perform to the best of your ability during the application process, like using a computer during a task instead of writing by hand, or booking in time for a longer interview, please let us know.

Benefits

  • End of year bonus and generous equity schemes.
  • Fully remote working enabled environment and culture
  • 25 days annual leave, 5 extra days for parents of children under 18 and generous parental leave
  • Perkbox, UK Healthcare Cash Plan and Income Protection Insurance.
  • Regular company-wide sessions: CEO Session, Show & Tell and Lunch & Learn, giving you an opportunity to share your ideas and learn about other areas of the business.
  • A warm and motivated team working to make a real difference for our customers.
