Job Details

We serve some of the UK's fastest-growing scale-ups such as Multiverse, Cuvva, Adzuna and Billion Dollar Boy and the number of users is growing rapidly.

During June we are completing a Seed round having previously been backed by the CEOs of our users and some of the UK's most established angel investors.

We believe that the future of work is hybrid and that people should do the things best done in-person, in-person and the things best done remotely, remotely.

Common Surface is an ambitious, exciting and rapidly scaling business gaining real traction from both clients and the investment community.

We are ambitious and are on target to roll out our product to 200+ companies by the end of the year in multiple geographies.
