I really like the fact that Seccl is doing something that could have a really big impact on the industry. That’s my main motivation.

  • Impactful work
    The investment sector is being held back by old tech, dismal processes and misaligned interests. We’re on a mission to fix it. It makes for a fast and varied environment full of complex problems to solve – and an enormous opportunity to create impact.
  • A rare growth opportunity
    We have the ambition and pace of a scale-up, and the backing and credibility of the Octopus Group. Put them together and you get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join a rocket ship… and add rocket fuel to your career.
  • Talented people
    Work alongside a team of experts, big thinkers and fast learners who like to get stuff done. Our people have a strong work ethic, sharp intellects and tons of energy; we’re a principled bunch who care about doing great work – and like to make friends along the way.
  • The Octopus family
    We’re proud to be part of Octopus, the £12.5 billion B Corp that’s on a mission to breathe new life into broken industries, through companies like Octopus Energy, Octopus Investments and Octopus Ventures.

How we work

Our two-way deal...

We see working at Seccl as a two-way deal. We expect everyone we hire to take ownership, care deeply about their work and never settle in pursuit of better – for themselves, for our customers and for the millions they serve. In return, you can expect a flexible, inclusive environment where you’re encouraged to be yourself, learn and develop, and have fun.

The give: our operating principles

We want to fundamentally transform a sector for good. That takes a high-performance culture that brings out the best in the talented people we hire. We expect everybody to…

  1. Never settle
    We think of ourselves as ‘embedded hero-makers’ for our customers. We put them first, and if we say we’ll do something, we’ll move heaven earth to do it. We think boldly and embrace change.
  2. Take ownership
    We think rigorously and deeply about a problem, but then charge at it, acting with and urgency and speed that sets us apart. But we never lose sight on quality or long-term scalability.
  3. Be generous and candid
    We encourage our people – and our customers – to challenge us and never shy away from tough conversations. We have a flat and inclusive culture where everyone can be themselves – and speak up.
The fact I’m still here is all the evidence you need. Software devs tend to move around quite a bit, but I couldn’t be happier. Seccl is for you if you want the freedom to work in the way that you prefer.

The get: perks of the job

Where we work

Based in Bath, Edinburgh, London and beyond

We’re a hybrid working environment, with a mix of fully office-based, fully remote, and somewhere in between.

Bath

Bath HQ: 20 Manvers Street
In 2020, we moved into our bright and airy HQ on Manvers Street, right in the centre of Bath. Today, around 75 Secclers live in the Bath/Bristol/South West area and use this HQ as their main office hub.

Edinburgh

Our Edinburgh HQ: Clarence House, George Street
We opened our first Edinburgh office in 2022 – a temporary shared workspace above Jo Malone on George Street (who knew an office could smell so good). In February 2023 we signed the lease on our more permanent home, just a few minutes’ walk down the same road. Around 20 of us who live north of the border use this as our HQ.

London

Our London hub: 33 Holborn
Since we’re dual-headquartered in Bath and Edinburgh, we do the vast majority of our hiring in the South West and Scotland – two vibrant talent pools for financial services technology. But we also have a small satellite hub in the main Octopus HQ.

Building a truly diverse and welcoming place to work

We want to create a culture that celebrates difference and shuns conformity. That’s why we benchmark our gender, ethnic, sexual and cognitive diversity, and talk regularly and openly as a team about the steps we can take to make our environment as welcoming as we possibly can.

In our most recent anonymous survey, we asked to what extent our team felt like they belonged at Seccl – and felt safe to be their authentic selves. The responses were 80% and 90% favourable respectively. 89% of us also agreed that Seccl values diversity.

But we’ve still got plenty of work to do…

We’re still far from being the truly diverse organisation we aspire to be. In particular, we’re working hard to become a much more gender balanced organisation – and are also on track to become an accredited neurodiverse workplace.
