Our Culture

We take pride in the fundamentals that make up the core of our company culture. These principles are the foundation for everything that we do, and alongside our mission, vision, and values, they make us everything that we are.

Our Fundamentals:

We work with fearless founders who are improving life and the world. We start early and build from a clean slate in an environment that is powered by trust and honesty. We are an international group of open, driven, and supportive individuals. We have a track record for developing people. We know exactly what we want to achieve and are working towards it.

The Role

Design plays a fundamental role in the creation of new products at OAK'S LAB alongside software engineering and product management.

We are looking for a seasoned designer with deep knowledge from multiple areas of expertise. We know that wearing multiple hats can sometimes be challenging, however, it is equally rewarding as it allows you to impact the products we build from multiple angles - being it the user experience, user interface design, or branding and the creation of assets for the marketing efforts. Apart from hard-skills, we expect you to be a dreamer and innovator who creates empathy for both your users and your team. An overlap and natural curiosity for software engineering and the process of product building is a must.

Outside of your product team, you will also be mentoring and leading other designers in the department, continuously evolving and reshaping our product development processes, our way of working and collaborating with our designers to ensure we are continuously improving as individuals and as a team.

We know we are looking for a unicorn, however, you will not be alone on the journey. We currently have a team of 8 designers led by our Chief Design Officer Filip Kominik and a robust startup building team of over 70 talented individuals from different backgrounds and disciplines.
