Our vision

We aim to become the most beloved financial Operating System of European SMEs.

We help business owners get rid of the time consuming hassle of handling accounting and finance, while giving them access to key information that they can use to make better decisions.

Meanwhile, we’re helping accountants. By using Pennylane, rather than doing manual and repetitive tasks, they can spend more time advising and guiding their clients.

In 3 years of existence, we’ve managed to :

Make ourselves known as a groundbreaking accounting and financial software for small businesses and their accountants

Raise a total of €100 millions, including from Sequoia , the famous fund from the Silicon Valley who invested early in companies like Google, Facebook, Airbnb, Stripe, Paypal and much more...

‍ ‍ ‍ Grow from 7 cofounders to 350 happy Pennylaners : we’re now recognized as one of the greatest places to work in France (but also remotely), with a 4,9/5 rating on Glassdoor and an e-NPS of 94.

Build an international environment with more than 36 nationalities, with a strong remote-friendly culture, where 30% of the employees are already working from all parts of Europe

Earn the trust of thousands of customers and accounting firms and obtain outstanding ratings

Context & Team

Reporting directly to Thomas, our IT Manager, you will be responsible, with the whole IT team on a daily basis, for defining, structuring and implementing our IT policy, to ensure the reliability and security of our hardware and software infrastructure, in a context of strong growth and forthcoming certification (ISO 27001) of our global security.
