We have different weekly, bi-weekly and monthly online sessions to hang out, watch videos (more TED Talks than TikTok), share knowledge, and celebrate our products and team successes.
With teams across the UK, Poland and India (not to mention the nomads!) we’ve been hosting online meetings and socials - and using collaborative cloud software - since day one.
We organise team, country and company-wide internal events, as well as our own public events such as meetups, hackathons, pitches, networking and roundtable discussions.
Our working hours are based on UK time, but working hours can be flexible (agreed with your line manager) as long as you’re available when needed by your project and organisational teams.
In order to ensure we’re up to speed with the latest product development practices, our working groups explore, evaluate and implement up-to-the-minute techniques, technologies and tools.
I love working with the people of Founder and Lightning. Everyone is very helpful, cheerful, and always ready for new challenges. We never miss a chance to cheer each other on good times, learn from our mistakes, and are ready to leap forward.
Sarabjeet Singh, Lead React Developer
Working at Founder + Lightning has been able to give me experience and exposure faster than I would have been able to get being an in-house team member. I have been able to work with Founders to launch a number startups and scale businesses across a variety of industries and technologies and am now using that knowledge to lead our F+L Capital portfolio. On top of all the learning, I also feel incredibly lucky to work with (and learn from!) such a passionate, talented group of people.
Victoria Davies, Lead Product Manager
The best things about being a part of Founder and Lightning - many and some of them - are the warm welcome when connecting to people across the globe, the freedom to learn and to implement that in the work we do, the flexible time we get to connect and disconnect when needed, overall it brings the BEST in you at all times.
Shubha Ramakrishna, Sr SDET
F+L is a fantastic place to learn, grow, and excel! I appreciate being encouraged to be curious and inventive as it has allowed me to tackle challenges with creativity and confidence. More rewardingly, I get to work with a diverse team made up of smart, fun, and collaborative individuals who truly inspire me and are always willing to lend a helping hand!
Wan-Lin Tai, Lead Product Designer
The best thing about working at F+L for me is the opportunity to fully unleash your creativity and share any improvement idea which will always be taken under consideration. You are welcome to contribute to any part of the business if you are motivated to do so and the whole team appreciates that. It's a unique chance to gather tons of experience from various areas that you might be interested in.

We meet in Kraków for a social event every month and organize PL team company trips twice a year (Summer and Winter). One of our previous events was in the Beskid Mountains for a weekend of fresh air, beautiful scenery, socialising and hiking!
