Junior Communication & Event (m/f)

We are developing the backbone of next generation financial services. In order to develop it further, we are looking for you!

About figo:

Consumers demand convenience, want user-friendliness, recognize the added value of context-based banking, and are getting the freedom to decide in which services they want to use their bank data – neutral services outside the classic banking world are more popular than ever before: the seemingly inseparable connection of banks and “banking” is breaking up! In its place, figo has become Europe’s first banking service provider. With our business model, we have opened the doors to the banks and we are a company unlike most any other in this new open banking world. Data from 3,200 financial sources such as bank accounts, credit cards, deposits, PayPal and FinTech companies can be reached via figo, with more to come. The Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) itself outlines our successful concept. One aspect of the new EU directive is the Access to Account (XS2A), which requires banks to make bank data available to so-called third parties. figo has developed a dynamic FinTech ecosystem and has generated a new standard for linking financial data. In this, figo has succeeded in reducing complexity, integrating banking services into third-party products, and providing new touch points between players in the financial sector and the end customer.

In order to grow further we are currently building a team of motivated and passionate people!
