A Walthamstow based brewing-tech start up has been name-dropped in the Sunday Times’ Best Places to Work UK 2024 list. 

Pinter, which allows consumers to make well-known brewery beers at home themselves, said:  “Since our inception we’ve always strived to create a workplace culture that encourages collaboration, continuous growth, and an engaging atmosphere for all employees.”

Julia de Matto, Head of People at the Blackhorse Lane-based brewery, said: “At Pinter we always ask new joiners what their superpowers are and as strange as it might sound, my superpower is that I care. We have built a team of people able to speak their minds, constantly push to do our best work possible and celebrate our achievements. It drives everything we do. 

It’s hard to explain what it means to be part of this team, but I am so, so proud of every single one of us. We have a huge 2024 ahead of us and I can’t wait for all the things we will still achieve together.”
