Diversity and Culture at Ben

(...because it doesn't belong at the bottom of an ad!)

Our culture is ever-evolving and is defined by our people. We donโ€™t hire clones, we hire individuals.

  • We celebrate diversity

  • We listen to our people

  • We work autonomously


  • We have fun!

We are organically growing a brilliantly diverse, inclusive and respectful bunch of people we are extremely proud of. This should go without saying but all applications are very much welcome. If you need any adjustments to support you with your application, just let us know by emailing jobs@thanksben.com.

Our Mission

The way companies reward their people today is broken - it's a rigid, one-size-fits-all approach that hasn't evolved to meet the demands of the modern workforce. How we work is changing, but compensation - salary, bonus, equity, benefits - has been stuck in the the same place for decades. Ben is changing that, starting with employee benefits. Our mission is to make benefits and pay work for everyone, everywhere.

We have been featured in TechCrunch and Financial Times (to name a few) and we're super proud to be backed by some of Europe's leading VC funds including Atomico, Seedcamp, Cherry, and DN Capital and the people behind companies such as Indeed.com, Peakon, Personio, Wise, Workday, and GoCardless.

  • Ensuring the voice of the customer is heard throughout the product development process, from speaking with our Customer Support, Sales, & Success teams, to interviewing customers

  • Maintaining the product backlog and running key product activities such as backlog refinement, prioritisation, grooming, developing user stories, etc.

  • Working closely with Marketing, Customer Success & Support to ensure feature releases are successful, whilst measuring the impact the feature has post release.

  • Help us solve complex business problems by breaking it down to smaller pieces, finding truth & insights by going straight to the source and developing highly user-friendly products


  • Several years of product experience in the B2B SaaS space, in a high-growth environment
