Company Description

We are building the future of financing.

Right now, if they want money, SaaS founders have to pitch VCs (who typically haven't even worked for a startup - unless employee 5,000 @ Uber counts...) or try (and fail) to get money from banks. And the fundamental question is: why?

From Figma to Slack to Shopify, SaaS businesses are reimagining & remaking every aspect of business - so why are their fundraising cash management solutions stuck in the last century?

At Vitt, we're revolutionizing how SaaS founders raise capital & manage their cash flow. We'll let them grow & thrive by offering them upfront, non-dilutive financing against their own cashflows.

Our mission is simple: let the builders both own & grow their businesses.

What you can expect from us?

Background on us: Saket (CEO) was an early stage VC for 3 years (La Famiglia & Global Founders Capital) and previous to that an operator at Rocket Internet. Greg (CTO) has both a finance software and machine learning background, as an ex-Tech Lead at Commerzbank for their web apps and former co-founder of a DevOps ML startup. He’s scaled early technical teams before.

We both believe in empowering the people we work with. We want our people to thrive, taking as much leadership and responsibility as they can (the more, the merrier!). By sharing our knowledge, experience & network we want our team to shine.

No corporate BS, no micromanagement, no "bro culture".

We are driven by our mission but are building a healthy working culture (no one is at their best consistently burnt out and sleep-deprived….) that lets diverse talents blossom.

Job Description

As our first product designer you will shape the visual identity of our core product - you will decide about everything from visual language to the shape of the buttons.

  • We will give you pretty much all the responsibility you will want to take. We’re not design-illiterate, but we won’t “help” you with putting “that toggle over there, 2 pixels higher”.
  • You will hire the team around you and lead them along the way.
  • You will decide on the product workflow, cooperate with and participate in hiring the Product Owners
  • You will have a very high degree of input into how our product looks like.
  • Together with the CTO you will build a robust process on delivering the design and making sure that final product reflects the quality you want.

Qualifications

  • Excellent knowledge of your day to day toolkit — whether it’s Sketch, Figma or Adobe Suite, you know how to use it alone and with the team
  • Remarkable communication skills in English — you will present your work, take input and iterate with other people on a daily basis
  • Organisational skills - you will lead a team once the moment comes and we need to hire more designers; you have to be able to organize your and others’ work
  • You have extremely deep knowledge in UX, standards and practices of the field, and are capable of researching the missing pieces
  • You are able to make the best of resources and constraints you’re working with
  • Sense of ownership. You will have to establish processes and standards that people will have to follow.
  • You have a great portfolio.
  • Prior experience in fintech is a major plus

Additional Information

WHAT WE OFFER YOU

  • Competitive Salary
  • Meaningful ESOP
  • 28 days of paid holidays.
  • Hybrid work — the product team is based in Berlin & works in hybrid mode (in the office when needed/otherwise, whenever you want)
