Design Lead

Are you our next Design Lead?

About Kivra

At Kivra, we want to contribute to the development of society. That is why we challenge old truths and develop smarter and more sustainable solutions for your important things. In this way we create peace of mind. We ask ourselves every day if there is a smarter way to make the world a little better for people  and the environment. Why should trees be cut down, pulp produced, paper printed and mail delivered - when we can instead send the mail digitally to your  mobile without unnecessary intermediate steps? And why worry about not finding important papers stored in binders, shoe boxes - or any other physical place - when it can be collected where it is always available? The same applies to receipts that we have digitized. In the same spirit, we are also building a new business around our corporate mailbox. Kivra currently has over 4 million users and over 30,000 affiliated companies and organizations that send documents, invoices, doctor appointments, receipts, pay slips and much more.
