Job Description


We want people to live their best lives.  

We believe people grow more when in teams.

We believe great teams are built on constructive feedback. At work. At home.

And so we’ve developed a beautifully designed, UX-led platform that helps employees and employers manage goal setting, 360-degree feedback, manager check-ins, pulse surveys and personal note keeping all year round.

This has the effect of streamlining company performance reviews, as well as providing a safe, confidential portal for employees to proactively gather year-round advice from their colleagues.

We’re growing rapidly with clients across Europe and Asia Pacific and an incredibly exciting pipeline of innovation ahead of us!


We have a small but senior team of “Howmies”: Our experience spans across J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Just Eat, Deliveroo, the UN, BlockEx, Gett, Lloyds and just to name a few.

We’re high achievers and we’re passionate about personal development. But what really binds us together is the Howamigoing Employee Ethos - check it out here:
