Culture & values

Motivated

Going to work shouldn't feel like a slog, so we want everyone in the team to personally care about what they're working on. We stay motivated by celebrating our wins, learning from our mistakes, and always looking for new gaps to step into.

Smart

At iwoca being smart isn't about what you know, it's about how you think. Smart thinking means looking at each problem by asking ‘why’ first, then figuring out ‘how’.

Humble

We know all ideas are flawed, all code has bugs, and everyone makes mistakes: it’s how we learn. For us, being humble means you question yourself first, rather than your team.

Growth Mindset

We think there's always a better way to solve a problem. So we never let ourselves get comfortable with being good enough.

Benefits

Work where you work best

Twice a year we rent houses in places like Sicily and the French Alps where each team can work together for a week poolside. We champion flexible working in all our teams.

Invest in iwoca

We want people to be invested in iwoca's success so after six months you'll be awarded share options.

Keep yourself healthy

We offer comprehensive health insurance and cash plans. You'll also get gym discounts and we host yoga classes in the office every week.

Start (and end) your day right

Each floor of iwoca HQ has a fully stocked fridge for breakfast and every Friday we unwind with beers and wine.

Life-work balance

We know your life outside of work comes first. We offer enhanced maternity and paternity leave for new parents plus a nursery benefit. We also have unlimited unpaid leave.

Learning and development

Whether you want to learn to code, experiment with motion design, or beat cognitive biases you'll have time and budget to invest in your professional development.
