Five celebrated its 5th birthday in 2020 but we’re still very much a start-up. We’re working in a fast paced, progressive and ground-breaking space, that has the potential to change the world in which we live.
We value our people and their diversity. We work hard to create an environment where everyone can thrive, flourish and grow, as well as one that promotes diversity.
We strive to continually improve; as individuals, each other, our teams, our products and our company.
We rigorously apply our mastery to intentionally design products that solve customer problems. Not more, not less.
We believe in making a difference on a daily basis. This happens by empowering the right people in the right environment.
Our values are underpinned by the implicit belief that we are “thoughtful and considerate humans” which is evidenced in our communication and by virtue of the value we place on team success over individual achievement.
Our interview process
Getting to know you
An initial chat with our TA team to get to know a bit more about you, your background, experience and interests. Also to tell you a bit more about us and the role.
Here we start to dive in to your technical skills and experience to see if you're a fit for the role. We also give you an opportunity to talk to our engineers about any technical questions you may have.
We use a range of technical tasks to help us to assess candidate skills and technical depth and breadth. Hopefully you'll find the tasks fun at the same time.
We finish our process with several interviews across areas like behaviours, architecture, coding, algorithms etc, that help us to round off our picture of you as a potential member of the Five family.
Decision and feedback
Hopefully we can conclude the process with a positive outcome and an offer to join Five. We always endeavour to provide honest and constructive feedback and truly value the time candidates invest with us.
We care deeply about our people and have built a competitive reward and benefits package that caters to our team's needs. From mental wellbeing and physical health to helping to provide for our team's future financial security… and a lot more in between!
We also have a great range of (essential) swag. Everyone loves good merch!
Below are just a few of the benefits we offer.
Contributory Pension Plan
Enhanced Family Friendly Policies
Free Life Assurance
Private Medical Insurance
What we do is always interesting and evolves quickly. We work well as a team and it’s rewarding to get things done.
We're collaborative and sociable, with weekly Research Reading groups across offices as well as local games and food events!
Instead of creating science fiction, I'm excited to be using my skills to make a better future, in the real world.
Technical Art Director
Our brilliant team works across six locations: Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, London, Millbrook and Oxford. We stay connected day-to-day, and we all get together to share news, successes and celebrations at our regular All Hands events.
