If you don’t get excited by the end of this job post then this product manager position isn’t for you.
This is for you (yes, YOU) out there who are the type of person who will build the train tracks before there’s even a train in existence that’s able to cover that distance. It takes vision to know that it was just a matter of time before one will come. Cue Karl Ritter von Ghega and the Semmering Railway.
It’s someone like you who convinces 20 000 workers to build the tracks now.
This role demands bravery – you’ll need courage in your convictions, and the vision to see beyond the next sprint and the complexity it brings into the bigger picture: to change the way we all work today.
By we, we’re not talking internally here at Pleo. That’d be one thing. Instead, we’re talking we as in the collective “we”. Be it bankers, lawyers, teachers, doctors, electricians – you name it. All of us as a collective workforce work one way today. Many things will change over time about how we work – and the thing that we at Pleo are solving is company expensing.
For employees, it means no more out-of-pocket spending or credit card borrowing. We empower employees with delegated spending that’s nice and simple. Use your card, get a push, upload the receipt and you’re done.
This puts the employee first and makes sure that they aren’t hurt by outdated company process and policies.
Because we put the employee at the centre of all this, you’ll find us to be user-obsessed (don’t take our word for it – check out our Trustpilot page: https://www.trustpilot.com/review/pleo.io). We put ourselves in the user’s position every day, and try to minimise the major pains they feel.
We are on one hell of a journey – our growth will either terrify or delight you. We’re looking for someone who this not only delights, but who is also inspired and energised by this type of challenge. We’re looking for someone longing to be part of a journey like ours: someone who’s looking to put their shower thoughts to good use.

Show me the benefits!
– Get your own Pleo card for no out of pocket spending, and full autonomy
– Flexible working remote options for those onsite (just speak to your team)
– Quarterly trips to somewhere for team camps (both company-wide ones and team-specific ones). The last one was Berlin in June this year, including a drag queen show (we went authentic-Berlin), here’s a sneak peak to give you an idea https://youtu.be/Ooy0JCJzNzc
– Investment in learning & developing (just check with your team for what’s reasonable, we don’t have set budgets)
– If you’re here in Copenhagen’s HQ: catered lunch in the office
And here are some other nice gestures that we do
– Loads of weird and wonderful niche communities to join in the company (we’re talking guerrilla gardening, liquids tasting, the Pleo band, learning to code initiatives, that type of thing)
– Wild enthusiasm and encouragement from us if you want to host MeetUps, events, etc – we’ll help (venue, food etc)
Working at Pleo means you’re working on something very exciting: the future of work. Through fintech we’ve seen a way to impact how people work; we think company spending should be delegated to all employees and teams, that it should be as automated as possible, and that it should drive a culture of responsible spending.
Being HQ’d out of Copenhagen means we’re inspired by sensible things like a good work-life balance. If you don’t work in the office with us we’ll help you get up the best remote set up possible, and will fly you in once a quarter for team camps (next one’s in Ireland, just saying!).
