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 software developer to join our 12-strong technical team, crafting solutions serving both the business and customers. Our technical stack is split – our customer-facing products, including our mobile app, focus on full-stack JavaScript (including React Native on mobile), and our business-facing products are built on the Salesforce platform. 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 role 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

The candidate

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

  • Love for the quality of your work and attention to detail
  • Enjoys working in a multidisciplinary team, collaborating with designers, other developers and business analysts on projects
  • 3-4 years experience in technologies relevant to modern web development (see below for examples)
  • Confidence with best practices, patterns and techniques in software development, but also a love of learning and personal development
  • Clear written and spoken English

Here is a sample of some of the technologies we use. It is useful to have some experience or interest in these, but as all technologists are continually growing and learning, we are more interested in your qualities than your specific experience:

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

The Role

  • Competitive salary, £35,000-45,000 (depending on experience) + bonus and option to own shares in the company
  • Permanent. Full-time, however we will consider part time - please state your preference in your application. No freelancers
  • 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
  • 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
  • Working remotely and/or from our office in Moorgate, London
  • Start date: October 2020

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 full amount of 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.

PR Manager

08 Sep 2020

We’re looking for an experienced PR Manager to tell our brand story and help savers across the UK be pension confident.

  • Full time, reporting to Head of Brand and Communications
  • Salary: £35,000, annual bonus and share options
  • Start Date: October 2020
  • Moorgate, London

For far too long, pensions have been difficult to understand, resulting in us not saving enough for retirement. Our mission is to fix things – by making pensions simple and engaging. We do this by helping customers combine their pensions into one online plan. And once they’ve joined us, we help them to manage, contribute and withdraw money in a few clicks from any device (including our mobile app).

We’ve been doing this since 2015, and in that time we’ve built the UK’s leading online pension provider. From a clear and simple transfer journey, to a beautiful app, easy top-ups, and stress-free withdrawals, we’re building a pension service that’s fit for today, and for tomorrow.

We’re also on a crusade to challenge and change bad practices in the pensions industry, including excessive transfer times, unthinkable exit fees, complicated paperwork, difficult jargon and generally outdated processes. This means speaking up when things are unfair.

We’re London-based (Moorgate) and backed by some of the world’s biggest money managers. State Street Global Advisors is one of our biggest external shareholders since December 2018.

Do you want to join a brilliant team of motivated and socially conscious people, excited about building a company that’s shaking up the traditional pensions industry? Then we need you!

The role

Within our Marketing and Product team, we’re looking for a PR Manager to join us in our London office 4-5 days per week*, where you’ll be helping us build the UK’s best pension product. You’ll work closely with our team of experts including Social Media, Content and SEO, and report to our Head of Brand and Communications.

\Remote working is an option in the current climate. Hotdesks are available in the London office and you must be willing to come into the office as and when required in the short-term (usually at least 2 days a week). Permanent remote working is not available for this position.*

You will be responsible for raising awareness and positioning PensionBee as a trusted pension provider, by building relationships with key journalists, broadcasters and influencers.

You will run our in-house press office and help support PensionBee’s day-to-day PR activities including:

  • Building journalist, blogger and influencer relationships
  • Writing press releases, op-eds, articles, award entries and other written materials
  • Distributing press releases and written materials to relevant press
  • Updating our press coverage log and website with the latest news
  • Managing our press database
  • Liaising with our PR agencies
  • Producing monthly PR reports
  • Supporting the team at events

What we’re looking for

  • At least 3 years’ experience in a similar role(s)
  • Excellent written and verbal communication
  • Exceptional attention to detail
  • Strong connections with national and consumer press
  • An interest in financial services
  • A passion for comms and spreading the PensionBee story
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced, start-up environment

Is this for you?

This role would ideally suit someone who has proven experience working in PR. Experience in the financial services industry is desirable, however it is not essential. We welcome a wide diversity of candidates. The right drive is often more important than the relevant experience or degrees.

So, if you have an interest in fintech and would love to shape our brand and product with your wise words, you should get in touch with us.

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.

The Role

  • Salary of £35,000, end of year bonus and option to own shares in the company
  • 25 days annual leave, 5 additional 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
