Who we are?

Recognised as an industry leader, we have picked up many accolades, including in 2021 winning Deloitte Belgium’s Technology Fast 50 award for most sustainable growth – an award given to the company with the best percentage growth over the last four years.
Our headquarters is in Ghent Belgium, from where we have successfully launched activities in BeNeLux and the UK. From all our offices and via our remote teams, we’re serving a strongly growing customer base, including the big 4, in 15 countries with 180+ colleagues. Since November 2023 we are proudly part of  Visma – the European leader in mission-critical cloud software, enjoying the power of the Visma brand and resources whilst retaining business autonomy and go-to-market freedom.
At Silverfin, we’re an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate based on race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status. 
We’re committed to elevating talent by creating an environment where we can all thrive together. So if you think you have what it takes, but don’t necessarily check every single box, please consider applying. We’d love to hear how you might contribute to our mission and our team.
How would you support our success?
Are you a dynamic and versatile creative professional who thrives on pushing the boundaries of multimedia design? 
We are seeking a Multimedia Designer on a fulltime basis to join our team on a temporary basis until the end of March, with the possibility of an extension to be decided by that moment.

You can create everything visual for our yearly flagship event Fast Forward in Waagnatie, Antwerp on May 16.
You’ll work in a global marketing team in a global role together with 12 wonderful marketing experts working from London and Ghent. Your creations will be ordered by both the marketing team as well as the people (HR) team. The latter organises plenty of teambuilding and cultural initiatives which need multimedia assets too.

What would success look like?

    • You have optimised and made the way how colleagues can give feedback on design iterations or video edits more efficiently.
    • As a creative person, you always remember that something needs to be functional first even if it comes at the cost of being less visually pleasing or cutting-edge design-wise
    • You are a project manager capable of managing delivery deadlines and prioritising your work. All while informing those colleagues and teams who are impacted or expecting things from you. Being transparent about what you’re working on and when it will be ready is crucial.

    • Success is achieved when everyone in the organisation uses the latest version of assets you have made. And that they know where to fetch/find it without asking for help. Because you stick to our/your naming conventions
    • When editing videos, make a first edit of how you feel the result should look like. Do not count on someone telling it to you. Always give a first proposal yourself.
