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 26 days paid leave and that’s not including the eight bank hols! You can also buy or sell up to five days, depending on what suits your needs best — 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 change-marker groups for ED&I and CSR.

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 a trendy Hive tote and tee. Of course, engineers also get the hardware set-up they need and an awesome tech stack to work/play with.

Commuter perks

Our Newcastle city-centre HQ makes it an easy work commute by train or bus. We also offer travel season ticket loans, car park discounts and a Cycle to Work scheme.

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.

The Hive Community

We’re building a community at Hive.

Our new, city-centre Newcastle HQ is designed for collaboration and accessibility, and our people are a strong mix of personalitiesfrom extraverted to introverted, artistic to analytical. 

But how do we all work together?

Well, there’s a cultural code at the heart of our community.

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 ‘Hive-Fives’ feature to nurture a culture of recognition here at Hive, read more about Hive-Fives on our Product page.
