The Company

We are a small, values-driven, UK company with a big heart and a great product. The Panintelligence suite of data analytics solutions is white-labelled by software vendors, and we have grown rapidly over the last four years from 6 to 40 people, winning many local and national awards.

Our vision is to be the data analytics partner of choice for software vendors, with a mission to build remarkable partnerships. This is a never-ending journey that begins from the very first contact with each new prospect.

We recently closed our Series A fundraise and opened our first international office in the USA (Boston). It's an exciting time to be part of the Panintelligence journey. Small enough to be a fun, rewarding place to work, and big enough to do something that matters.
