We’re SwissBorg, a fintech startup headquartered in Switzerland, with offices in Tallinn, Toronto and London. 

Our flagship product, the SwissBorg app, offers over 250,000+ users the best price and liquidity across 15 fiat and 12 cryptos, as well as giving them the opportunity to earn passive income with our new Smart Yield account. And the community is growing fast, with over $1 billion in assets under management, weekly volume of over 250 million, and over 4,000 Premium users.

But that’s just the start in our mission to democratise wealth management by building products that allow individuals to manage their crypto assets at a touch of a finger. Whether you’re in Andorra or Zimbabwe, and whether your portfolio is worth one dollar or a million, SwissBorg gives you the best tools to learn about digital currencies and manage your wealth.

    • Demonstrable experience leading design of digital products from A to Z

    • You can make complex concepts simple and clear, but not dumbed down
    • Exceptional communication and presentation skills
    • Experience working in an agile environment a plus
    • Investment and cryptocurrency experiences are a plus
