Job Description

The Peloton are very excited to announce that we are looking for an experienced senior accountant!

What’s in a name?

Our name is derived from cycling and is used to describe the principle of surrounding the key rider with experts whom together perform faster than any one individual. This allows the key rider to gain performance way in excess than on their own.
