Careers at Hive

We want to change working lives for the better

Our people believe everyone has the right to a happy, healthy and fulfilled work life (especially if you work at Hive).

Why our people love working at Hive

Benefits of working at Hive

Jolly holidays

Team Hive can take 32 days paid leave and that’s not including the eight bank hols!  — pretty cool huh?

Super-flexi working

Hive trust our people to work remotely (whether that’s from home or the Himalayas and you can also work flexi-time —​ as long as team communication and collaboration stay top of mind).

Canny people

We enjoy plenty of socials, including Friday beers (and soft bevs). And whether you’re a hiker, climber, foodie or yogi, there’s a club for you, but don’t worry, organised fun is not mandatory!

Purposeful work

Our people are giving employees an influential voice, helping organisations create conscious workplaces and practising what we preach with 2 paid CSR/Volunteering days per person per year.

Learning is earning

We love a ‘Lunch and Learn’ sesh, inviting team members and special guests to take the (kitchen) floor. There’s team-wide access to Udemy and a healthy office library budget.

Life stuff

We support our people inside and outside of work — offering a Pension scheme, Work Place Nursery scheme, childcare vouchers, tech insurance, discounts on dining out, and more!

Tech & swag

Our peeps get an Apple Mac on arrival, plus loads of great Hive swag. Of course, engineers also get the hardware set-up they need and an awesome tech stack to work/play with.

Commuter perks

If you do choose to come into the office, our Newcastle city-centre HQ makes for an easy work commute by train or bus. We also offer travel season ticket loans, car park discounts, Cycle to Work and Car schemes.

Health & happiness

Our people are supported to feel happy and healthy, both physically and mentally, with paid sick leave, trained first aiders on-site, an employee advice service and gym discounts and annual subscriptions to Headspace.

The Hive Community

We’re not just coworkers. We’re a community.

Our new, remote-first culture is built around trust and autonomy, while our city-centre Newcastle HQ is designed for collaboration and accessibility. As a team, we’re proud to be a strong mix of personalitiesfrom extraverted to introverted, artistic to analytical. 

But it’s our values knit all that together.

Team Hive Work With


We positively impact people’s working lives by partnering with incredible organisations, which drives our decision-making and product development.


We’re brave, we try new things, and sometimes we make mistakes, but we learn and do better next time—picking up new skills and knowledge along the way.


We are self-determined and independent thinkers, which our leadership team nurture through complete trust and accountability in everyone.

Team spirit

Our CEO says, “there’s no D in team” ie. we’re open-minded, we keep every interaction constructive, and we don’t upset or intimidate our coworkers.


We realise life is short and, because of this, we know our workload limits, we set a work-life balance, and are mindful of both our physical and mental wellness.

Recognition on the regular

A well-deserved pat on the back from a teammate feels fantastic, boosts your confidence and motivates you through even the hardest of tasks. 

We use our platform’s peer-to-peer recognition feature, Hive Fives, to nurture a culture of mutual appreciation (read more about Hive Fives on our Product page).
