About us

Founded in 2014, Penten is a multi-award winning global technology leader in cyber solutions for government and defence. Our mission is to deliver new Defence and security technologies for the future fight. We work with exclusive clients to solve the hardest cyber challenges of tomorrow, and support complex transformations in the digital age. We have a rapidly growing team, led by a passionate executive team with extensive expertise in cyber security, ICT, engineering, communications and Defence.

Our Culture

What’s important to us is pretty simple: you, the work we do and who we do it for.  We know that the job you do is only part of who you are, so in the time you spend with us you will feel connected, empowered and enabled.

You’ll find a place where your opinion matters, your contribution is valued, and your uniqueness is celebrated. A workplace that is diverse, equitable and inclusive, representative of various backgrounds, perspectives and skills.

As for the work you will do? It is important, exciting, challenging and consistently ground-breaking, helping to shape a safer future for all of us. You’ll build things that didn’t exist, and you’ll do it at pace, with plenty of space to collectively test, fail and reflect.  And the learning never stops, with formal and informal professional and personal development only ever a conversation away.

Due to the sensitive nature of what we do, a positive security culture is essential, but this doesn’t stop us from having fun. When you join us, you will find a workplace that is energetic, friendly, rewarding, exciting, supportive and only mildly obsessed with cake.
