Work on your terms

Our team benefits have been designed to reflect and support the transparency and autonomy that is core to Automata's culture. 

As we continue to grow and learn we expect our benefits to do the same. We welcome all suggestions from the team on how we can best provide a meaningful package that has a positive impact on their lives. 

  • Learning & Development 🎓

    We each get £1000 per year to spend on our personal growth, learning and development.

  • Unlimited holiday 🏖️

    Taking holiday should be a joy, not a source of anxiety.

  • Flexible working 🤹

    We know that a ‘one size fits all’ working week is unrealistic for a growing team. As much as we can we want to help you balance your work and home life.

  • Employee referrals 💰

    There's plenty of HR data around the benefits of hiring referrals, but the important thing for you to know is that if we hire someone you refer you get to work with a valued colleague or friend and you receive a £1000 referral fee.

Founding Values

From the beginning of the company, Automata's founders upheld a few key principles. Today they remain essential to the company's culture:

  • Be guided by how things should be, not what they need to be: we think from first principles
  • Have as wide an impact on as many people as possible: we solve large scale problems
  • Create things that are almost too good to be true: we push the belief envelope
  • Means are just as important as the end: we love a good intellectual challenge
  • Our work should speak louder than us: we speak less, do more
