About five°degrees

Five Degrees Portraits-640-Edit

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.

your role.

Design remains one of our USP's, and °neo has the best design of any B2B core banking product. This role has the responsibility of continuing our good work and helping us live and breathe our design USP.

your responsibilities.

  • Innovate through research and ideation. This means knowing our clients personally and speaking to them regularly.
  • Support the dev teams as needed. When they ask for a design, you'll deliver it. Otherwise you'll be bringing your own ideas to life.
  • Maintain our design system in Figma. This is important as its central to our speed for both design and development (our design and code are in sync).

This is a senior-level role reporting to our VP of Experience Design, Toma, and working with our amazing brand and marketing designer, Lauren. You don't have to have a senior title to apply, but you do need a senior mindset, especially given the autonomy you’ll have.

checkboxes.

  • You know design 
  • You can discover problems through your own user research
  • You can solve those problems through ideation
  • You can validate your solutions

We use a Design-As-A-Service model, which means you'll work in our design team, NOT in a scrum team. That means no reporting to dev or PO managers. Our designers get to be designers!
