Careers at Coconut

Help us reimagine how the UK’s 3.5m sole traders manage their finances

With Coconut, bookkeeping and tax stay in the background. Our customers can concentrate on building a strong business and a better work-life balance, not worrying about missed tax bills or how much cash they have to spend.

We have been a remote-first team since Covid hit, and hire people from across the UK.

Drive things forward

Coconut is a startup with big ambitions – so we want to work with ambitious and independent minds. We need everyone to take responsibility for driving things forward – both their own role, their department and the company as a whole. Be a protagonist and an instigator - even if you don’t always get your way, we’ll appreciate the energy.

Be brave

To achieve our vision we have to believe in a world that doesn’t exist yet and to create products that no one else has imagined. This requires high quality ideas that challenge preconceptions but also brave actions with uncertain outcomes. If we’re not doing anything that surprises ourselves or our customers, we can be sure we’re not doing justice to our ambitions, or impacting our customers’ lives.

psychology

Open minds seek change

We believe that strong views are important, but also that you should be open to new ideas and viewpoints. Come with intelligent and passionate contributions, and help us see things from new angles. At the same time, actively seek out challenges yourself and maintain a willingness to learn, grow, and let go of opinions you previously held.

Get out of the office

The vast majority of questions we have can be answered by our customers. Don’t go round in circles debating what’s right or wrong, get out of the office to find the answer. Speak directly to customers, run experiments and analyse data to make decisions.
