We are smava – the online credit comparison platform. We make loans transparent, fair and affordable! With more than 300.000 satisfied customers, we are one of the biggest FinTech companies in Germany. Become now part of our vision to shape the digital future of the consumer loan market!

Our Development teams are spread along the customer journey, each one being entirely responsible for their platform sections and related technical services. They work autonomously with flat hierarchies, practicing self-organization and lateral leadership. This empowers all members to share responsibility and decisions, fostering a strong sense of ownership.
