Pennylane is building the financial OS (Operating System) for European SMEs. A single source of truth for financial data, used on one side by entrepreneurs to run their business (invoicing and getting paid, paying suppliers and expense management, piloting cash and profitability) and on the other side by their accountant for bookkeeping and fiscal declarations.

Saving time to all entrepreneurs and accountants, helping them to make the right decisions and enabling 3rd parties to offer added-value personalised financial services.

We’ve launched in France and will expand to other markets in Continental Europe in 2022. Our commercial website is thus in French only but the code is obviously documented in English and our tech team speaks English.

We’re product-led, growing fast, backed by strong investors and are starting to hire software engineers anywhere in Europe, to join our experienced remote-first engineering team.

👪 Team and context

The tech team is divided into 10 squads, each squad being led by a Team Lead working with a PM and a Product Designer and composed of 5 to 8 developers (Frontend, Backend and Full-stack). As we scale and increase the number of Squads, we are looking for Team Leads to help us drive and mentor those squads. 

Pennylane is based in Paris but our tech team is remote-first. You can work from anywhere in Europe. The team meets in Paris a few days every two months.
