Lead Product Designer
Hi there! We're 5Mins, and we're on a mission to reignite the passion in workplace learning - helping employees and teams to become better, happier and more successful. A fantastic founding team that has built some of Europe's biggest companies.
We’re building the next generation of learning product - harnessing micro- learning, spaced repetition, AI-driven personalisation and advanced gamification.
Working with us is an exciting opportunity to get involved at the Ground Floor with a high-profile team and well-backed startup solving the workplace learning challenge at a global scale. We offer an attractive compensation and stock options package.
We have offices in London and Porto, and are a truly international team of 20 with other colleagues across France, Germany, Argentina & Greece!

What we believe in
Most workplaces around the world are lacklustre, devoid of motivation and inspiration, leading to record levels of employee disengagement. Today, learning is only accessible to the privileged few in larger companies and enterprises, leaving large numbers of the global workforce behind.
Our mission is to inspire each and every employee, manager, and leader regardless of the size of their company to unlock their true potential by learning and growing every day, through bite-size content, gamification and personalized learning paths.
