We’re a team driven by the belief that we can radically change the world of work. We believe – and hear from our customers every day – that when an organisation understands itself better it can create more fulfilling jobs, and grow in ways never before imagined.

Enterprises big and small trust our products to provide visibility and clarity in areas once characterised by hearsay and uncertainty. With the insights delivered by Peakon, these organisations become more agile, responsive, and able to make the changes and investments that their employees care about most.

We’re in the business of creating great places to work, so it should be no surprise that this is our highest priority at Peakon. With ambitions as big as ours, we see individual growth and development as the key strategy for growing our business.

Trust and transparency guide everything we do here. You’ll find an open salary model, unlimited vacation, minimal hierarchy, and maximum freedom to develop and execute your own ideas. Our style of collaboration is based on honesty and friendship, and we always love making new friends...


As the Peakon Sales team grows, we are looking for a Sales Engineer to take on the responsibility of being the liason between our engineering team, sales team and prospects to ensure customer needs are satisfied in regards to Information Security, data integration and data privacy. You will be supporting the engineering team with security guidance and help provide training to make sure security is top of mind in every aspect of the daily work.

You will explain to customers how Peakon meets both technical stakeholders and end-user employee requirements of technical security and privacy, all while using personal skills to ensure our customers trust that we are keeping our data secure and private but not influencing the systems themselves. Our customers trust us to keep their data safe, and as Peakon grows, their trust will continue to be a top priority for the business and this role.

Additionally, you will work with customers to both convey our external efforts to detect vulnerabilities and deter threats, as well as coordinate with customers to run their own bespoke testing.

You will spend significant time supporting the rest of the business on security-related matters, and work closely with our legal and sales teams in making sure our customers trust us at every point of their journey with Peakon.

You are an engineer at heart, with a deep technical understanding of Information Technology and IT as well as web applications. You stay up to date on the latest news and technology trends as well as changing Data Regulations like GDPR and the latest developments in Californian and US privacy law, all while keeping yourself informed about current security best practices.

You have a mix of Sales, Engineering and Security experience, perhaps working as a security engineer at a medium- or large-size company. You are looking to join a smaller team where you can have a big impact in the company and for customers.

You are a great communicator who is equally comfortable talking and writing about large data sets with IT stakeholders, as well as making the complex sound simple when communicating with business stakeholders.
