Job Title: Senior Security Engineer

Salary: Up to £80,000 

Start date: ASAP

Location: Remote/Bristol.  At the moment we are only able to accept candidates based in the UK.

Who are we?

We recognised a global problem. Millions of ordinary people contribute to our investment system through ISAs, workplace pensions, and other investments. Yet most have no visibility over where their money is going and no voice at the many companies they own through their investments. The result? A society that is disengaged and an investment system that is failing to address critical social, environmental and governance challenges. 

Tumelo was founded to change this. We believe every investor should be empowered to use their shareholder voice to create change on issues like climate, gender and human rights at companies where their money is invested. Our software shows investors the companies they own and empowers them to engage on issues they care about. In doing so, we help investment firms connect with customers so they can better serve people and protect our planet. 

We’ve just raised a $19m Series A, we are growing at pace, heavily investing into our people and our product and have an exciting roadmap ahead of us. 

Big change takes time but we are patient and ambitious in equal measure; influencing the system, building a movement and empowering the world. Want in?

What our team say:

“People actively help each other and make time for it. Every week I've learnt something new. Flexibility is respected. People are here to work and deliver, not to have meetings for the sake of it”.

“Everyone here is treated as a valuable member of the team and no good deed goes unnoticed. I feel appreciated and respected constantly. The culture is full of fun and the people are all fab. Would recommend to anyone”.

“Everybody is so passionate about what they do, which is great for motivating each other. Our ideas are heard and encouraged. There is such trust and support all throughout the business and everyone is always eager to help”.

“Great culture, flexibility, good work/life balance, a worthwhile job (promoting shareholder rights) and amazing colleagues”.
