What it's like working at Pento πŸ‘©πŸΏβ€πŸ’»

Our product πŸ”₯

We're a technology company, not an accountancy, payroll bureau, or similar. We build beautiful payroll software 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.

We're a remote-first company, pushing forward how we work for the better. Our progressive environment of people-first practices supports our team adopting flexible and tailored ways of working. All of this supports our mission of building a truly diverse team and inclusive environment.

Why now is a really exciting time to join us πŸš€

  • Payroll 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 are helping over 250 companies run payroll across the UK and are on a mission to bring Pento to many more!
  • Our customers love Pento - our NPS is above 70 (check our Trustpilot by the way)
