Lead Product Designer - creativity & user focus
Two brothers with artistic dreams. A mother with a hard will to give her children the foundation to realize them. A wallet with holes in it. The loan, which was the answer to everything, became the beginning of a disastrous journey. Because even though she paid back on time, the loan amount still increased. As did the hole in her wallet. An event that left its deep marks.
There and then, a seed was planted. A seed that has grown into a business built around mutual respect and fairness. Our solid values inspire us to consistently be innovative and create new services that surpass banks and well-known credit card brands. And the best part is we've just begun!
With innovative technology as our tool and our desire for equality as our energy, we've come far. But we're nowhere near where we want to be. Our ambition is to help millions of people get access to sustainable finances.
In 2018 we launched our first-ever service: Fairlo Varda. To this date, Varda has helped over 40,000 people access a sustainable and beneficial credit line.
With our second product, Fairlo Levla, we combined cutting edge tech and modern behavioural science to give our customers access to a tool that encourages better financial health.
Lately, we've spent time creating Fairlo Lösa, which allows all our users the ability to free themselves from unsustainable credits and buy-now-pay-later solutions with just a click.
We're also happy to have:
- Some of Sweden's most experienced business angels and investors share our vision and support our work.
- Won the yearly accelerator program at Sting (Stockholm Innovation & Growth) in 2019, amongst a group of 19 hot startups.
- Put down roots in the UK. We'll be launching to the British public later in 2022.
- A team spread across three countries that's grown from 3 to 50 in just a couple of years. All working for a fair(lo) world.
- Over 3000 reviews on our Trustpilot page, with an average rating of 4.9 out of 5.0, combined with an exceptionally low customer churn.
- Not to forget; a competitive benefit package, a hybrid work model and a fun and caring culture that will help you to grow with us.
