Head of Engineering (f/m/div)

Job description

Joonko is turning consumer finance on its head. This means flipping over a monolithic industry and putting the customer in the driving seat (literally).


Inspired by the courage and tenacity of Junko Tabei, the first woman to climb Mount Everest, we’re overthrowing outdated attitudes and processes to bring financial products into the 21st century.

No more top-down attitudes. No more endless paper forms for insurance and banking products. Just a simple, fair and understandable way of taking control of our finances.

We’re a newly launched company. We embrace new ideas, curiosity and freedom. If you thrive in an energetic environment and are passionate about making people’s lives easier, we’d love to meet you.
