About the company
ScalingFunds is a Fintech startup building a blockchain-powered asset management platform. We help fund managers set up, raise, and manage professional investment funds. We automate investor onboarding, simplify fundraising, increase transparency for investors, and empower them to transfer or trade shares on their own terms.
Our vision is to democratize investing. Our technology will level the playing field of investing and empower anyone in the world to access financial instruments that are currently reserved for the financial elite. If you’d like to learn more, check out our Vision & Mission & Values.
For example, our platform:
- Helped a large European fund manager launch a €200 million real estate fund while lowering the minimum investment amount more than 90%
- Powered the tokenization of a €35 million property in the United Kingdom
- Received regulatory approval from BaFin (Germany’s Financial Regulatory Authority) to launch a €2+ million real estate offering for retail investors.
- And we’re just getting started: 2022 will be a big year for us! Maybe together with you?

- You organize and manage design artifacts.
2. Product Discovery
You co-own the product discovery process together with our product managers and other product designers.
- You lead qualitative & quantitative user research to develop a deep understanding of our customers.

- You create discovery artifacts such as user personas, journey maps, or empathy maps.
3. Product Delivery
You support, collaborate, and provide feedback to engineers during implementation and ensure the developed product adheres to the original design vision.
4. Product Strategy
You help drive our product strategy together with the product, business, and executive teams.
5. Continuous Improvement
Together with the team, you continuously iterate, improve, and refine the ways we collaborate and deliver products to our customers.
If required, you help the business development and executive team produce high-quality marketing materials to help drive customer acquisition.
