Munich, Germany

Who we are – the Gini Community

Founded in 2011 Gini is a well-established award-winning FinTech disrupting the banking, accounting, and insurance sector. Our most well-known product is our photo payment software assistant. With this and our other products, we want to enhance everyone’s quality of life - by automating tedious, mindless tasks. What’s special about us: We work in self-organized and cross-functional teams which give everyone at Gini immense autonomy and responsibility. Transparency, innovation, and continuous improvement are fundamental pillars in the way we work together.
Besides other awards in Gini’s early years, we received the “Innovationspreis IT” in 2018 and “Top Arbeitgeber 2020” by Focus.

After we managed to make paying bills easier for millions of people with our photo payment, we are now conquering e-commerce and insurance with new payment solutions. We are looking for you as an experienced Innovation Manager (m/f/d) to fill our Product pipeline.
