lightning boltCareers at Progression

Give everyone the opportunity to design a career they love.

Today, millions of employees looking for career growth are stuck between bad HR software and impenetrable spreadsheets. There are no career development products that employees and managers really want to use.

That's not good enough. Managers should have the power to support their teams, and anyone should have the opportunity to be the best version of themselves and create careers that they love.

We're changing all that. And we need your help.

Who are we?

We're a small team with backgrounds at fantastic companies across the UK and beyond.

Our founders Jonny and Neil are experienced product builders with experience scaling fast-moving startups like Deliveroo, Osper and EmpowerRd.

We've experienced this problem first hand building design and engineering teams and are excited to build the product we would have wanted to give to our teams.

We're also building a collection of pets (meet Murphy, Sumi and Nori).

Life at Progression

As a remote first team we get the best of both worlds: the flexibility and focus of working remotely paired with regular IRL events to get to know the team, do something fun and take a break from the screen. We run company meetups roughly every six weeks, usually from our East London studio space at Second Home.

Our Hiring Principles

What we expect from everyone

1. Act like an owner

We believe that people do their best work (and are happiest) when they're acting like owners. We'll look for proof that you thrive when given a goal and the freedom to run.

2. Have a relentlessly high quality bar

As a member of our founding team you'll make decisions that will last for years. It's incredibly important that you're thinking critically about our past, present and future output.

3. Be smart with time and resources

Small teams are far more efficient than large teams, and we intend to continue building an efficient business. The ability to avoid busy-work and buy yourself or others time is incredibly important.

4. Be candid but empathetic

We surface new ideas, challenge preconceptions, call out ambiguity. But we do so with empathy and consideration. We expect honesty, delivered with positivity and with a bias to trust.

Whatever your race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status or disability, we want to hear from you.
