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.

Meet some of our people

Jen - North American Content Acquisition and Ambassador Lead

As a Genealogist, the ability to work full time in the industry I love is exciting, but even more so, it allows me to be a part of something much larger: preserving history for us and for future generations. It’s an honor to be part of the effort in saving the human story, a story we each have a part in. It’s an incredible legacy, and one that will live on for countless generations.

Niall - Content Marketing Lead

I’ve loved working here over the last six years. I get to bring family history to life for our customers while flexing my creative and strategic muscles. I’m based in Ireland and my team are scattered across our other offices but that doesn’t affect our collaboration – we’re a tight-knit bunch who work well together and have plenty of fun along the way.

Giorgia - UX Researcher

I really love how #behuman is at the core of Findmypast’s values. I not only feel encouraged and supported to grow professionally, I also feel genuinely valued, respected and trusted as an individual. The culture really allows space for personal contributions – I even managed to bring in my passion for environmental issues by co-founding a green activities group! The opportunities are really endless.

Di - Head of Growth

Findmypast is a dynamic, fun and creative place to work; it’s really rewarding to work for a company where you’re enriching people’s lives by helping customers trace their family stories. There’s a real atmosphere of support and collaboration within our work family, where everyone’s encouraged to get involved. Plus the perks are great too, with daily breakfasts, weekly drinks and monthly company lunches.

James - Software Development Engineer

I feel lucky to be at such an engaging and dynamic place. We’re all given the chance to work with a variety of different technologies in a genuinely supportive atmosphere. Everyone has the opportunity to share their thoughts too, which leads to a range of diverse and interesting ideas. It’s a culture that’s remained strong even while working from home during the pandemic.

I’ve really enjoyed working with Findmypast since I started in 2014. It supports flexible working which as a parent, helps me achieve a good work-life balance.
