We know how crucial it is to get a deeper understanding of the company you are considering to join, that is why we have made our playbook public. Here you can dive deep into what life at Scout is like and get to know us better.
We want every Scout to work from home safely and comfortably, so we give you an allowance to make sure you have all you need.

Rosie Harvey Talent Acquisition Manager “Joining Scout as hire number 11 in March 2021 is one of the best things that has happened for me. Ed and Adam took a chance on me and offered me a role, even though I had no recruitment experience. I was given fantastic training and within 2 months I was embedded in my first client, an amazing fintech startup. Since then, I have been fully embedded in 4 exciting fintech/saas businesses, was promoted within 6 months and had exposure to companies I would never have otherwise had the opportunity to work in and gained invaluable experience. From the outset, the culture created by the leadership team has been incredible and has only gotten better as we have grown. Scout truly values every single team member and always ensures our voices are heard. Scout has so much to offer: incredible benefits, the opportunity to work for amazing businesses, a team that genuinely loves what they do and their employer and brilliant career progression opportunities to top it all off. I cannot speak highly enough of Scout and the team they have built and can’t wait to see what we get up to as we continue to grow!” Kyle Mahon Tech Talent Partner "I joined Scout in February 2021, and I haven't looked back since! I was employee eight and it's been amazing to see how we've grown since then. The amount of input everyone gets into the business is fantastic and it's not only reserved for people who have been here a while, you can make a difference from day one! We're an incredibly friendly bunch and can safely say we get along like houses on fire. This compounded with the chance to work with amazing clients is what I love about Scout. I've worked so far with fintechs, digital ID, and digital mental health; the range of different client environments has proven invaluable for my professional growth. We're led by truly passionate founders and we have an exciting future ahead (NYC wink wink)." Kavita Amin Commercial Talent Lead "Why do I like Scout? The real question is, what is there NOT to like about Scout?
I enjoy working at Scout because of the people - I am privileged to be part of a team that is so ambitious yet humble. One of our values, 'Less me, more we', is ingrained into how we do things around here, from shoutouts, team calls, 1:1s to having chats dedicated to memes, pets and trash TV. Everything we do here is a 'we'.
If that was not enough, I genuinely love what I do day-to-day! Scout gives me the autonomy to work with my client in how I see fit. I get to go to their office and fully immerse myself in their culture, input ideas, improve processes, and of course, make hires! Scout has been my biggest cheerleader and has given me a platform to continue developing." Tom Hardy Commercial Talent Partner "Scout has been an amazing place to work right from the outset. The transparency from the co-founders and managers is like nothing I have experienced before and that translates right through to how everyone operates right through the company to how everyone collaborates together. I love how open all the conversations are and that people are so receptive to your ideas, where you'd like to take your career and really care about what's best for you. Although we are a remote first company you can really see the bonds that people have developed over the course of working at Scout."
