Why Kernel is a great place to work
It is a dynamic, youthful environment that embraces diversity and inclusion. Kernel cares about its employees. We offer flexibility to work the way that suits them, whether that be finishing work early to pick up the kids from school, working remotely or bringing their dog into the office for the day.
With benefits such as free health insurance, discounted financial plans or our 13-week parental leave top-up, we want our employees to not only have a great place to work but also have the financial tools and knowledge to succeed.
Working with us
Say It Like It Is
We will always engage with our investors in a language they understand – never diluted and never in the small print.
Not all investors or our team are alike and we will empower them to express their individuality.
We encourage open and free sharing of opinions, so that everyone feels as though they can collaborate and contribute.
Never Stop Innovating
An insatiable desire to understand the inner workings of things fosters an environment of continual thinking and problem solving.
