Job description

We are Joonko

We are building a product-driven company that enables today’s digital consumers to navigate the often complicated world of banking and insurance products, and puts them in charge of their own financial health and wellbeing.  We do this by dramatically simplifying processes, providing data-driven recommendations and insights, and giving a complete picture using a streamlined, modern digital product.
