What is Pento? πŸ€”

We're a technology company, not an accountancy, payroll bureau, or similar. We build beautiful payroll SaaS that automates all manual workflows and we usually help companies cut 50-80% off the time they spend on payroll. That means no spreadsheets, no e-mails, and no manual bank transfers. We've built an easy-to-use software product, that does all of this automatically.

Why now is a really exciting time to join πŸš€

  • The UK payroll process hasn’t been disrupted since… ever
  • *Every* company runs payroll, but very few companies are happy with their current process
  • Pento makes payroll up to 80% more efficient (we are probably conservative here)
  • We win the vast majority of head-to-heads against our main competition, but we still have a lot to do
  • Our customers love Pento - our NPS is above 70 (check our Trustpilot by the way)
