Careers at Findmypast

Find your magic with us

Connecting people to their family stories is special. We’re proud to deliver these magic moments. Through technology, data and insights, we bring people closer to their past, to benefit their future.

We’re a fast-growing team of smart people, on a mission to help millions. Solve meaningful, complex problems and be a part of something magical. Enjoy the agility of a scale-up with the security of real financial backing, in a place where every story matters.
As a remote-first organisation, Findmypast employees choose how and where in the UK they work best, whether that's from home or at one of our offices. Yet, we recognise the value in seeing each other in person from time to time. Our quarterly team meet-ups, social gatherings and biannual company offsite events offer the perfect opportunities for collaborative work.
