Quality Assurance Lead

We now have the opportunity to look for a Quality Assurance Lead to join our awesome and growing team. We're on a mission to scale our operations and maximize value to our existing and future customers.

At Penneo we are constantly breaking barriers and expanding our horizon.
Founded back in 2014, we have quickly evolved from a digital signature platform to an eco-system of automation solutions that optimize document transactions and meet compliance requirements simply and efficiently.
We are 100+ passionate people, from all over the world, with a clear mission: to make it easy and beneficial for companies to be compliant in a world where being accountable for the way you do business is a matter of course.



Who are we?

We are Penneo, and we are on a mission to scale!

Penneo is a fast-growing RegTech (Regulatory Technology) SaaS company headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Penneo started with three people who had the ambition of reducing the hassle of getting documents signed by delivering a digital signature platform. Then, we evolved into a set of solutions for automating workflows related to client onboarding (KYC), signing, and document management.

Following our listing on Nasdaq Copenhagen Main Market in April 2022, we are now, more than ever, in a position to execute our European expansion strategy and scale our operations to maximize value to our existing and future customers.
