what we do.

five°degrees is a FinTech, with 150+ employees based in Amsterdam, Lisbon, Reykjavik, and Novi Sad. Our mission is to bridge the gap between the old and the new world for core banking systems. We achieve this by offering a cloud-native core banking platform to banks and financial services.

Our core product is called °neo. We started working on it two years ago with design thinking at its core. Before we wrote a single line of code we spoke to actual users, understood their problems, and came up with genuinely innovative ways to make their working lives better. Then we validated those solutions, and finally, we started building.

As a Digital Strategist, you will work on a great variety of strategy- and product-oriented projects, reporting directly to the respective member of the Management Team. For this role we are looking for a true strategic allrounder, given that your focus may shift from (business) strategy projects towards more Finance and Business Development oriented projects and vice versa. You like to work on new challenges every day and enjoy a job where no day is the same.

  • Minimum of 2 years working experience in a tech company, consulting, or banking.

  • Affinity with FinTech – you want to revolutionize the banking scene and have knowledge of the financial sector and (cloud) technology.
  • Strong analytical thinker and comfortable working with Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel.
  • You can work independently but also in cross-functional teams and you don’t need a lot of information to know what to do.
