🧪 We are looking for someone who:

  • Has an advanced product design experience demonstrated through a portfolio of impactful design solutions.
  • Has proven experience and dedication in guiding and mentoring designers to achieve their best work.
  • Has background designing user experiences within sectors such as insurance, finance, or B2B space would be considered an asset.
  • Has extensive experience with design and prototyping tools such as Figma and is committed to continuous learning of new features.
  • Is experienced in conducting user research and usability testing.
  • Has the ability to communicate design ideas clearly and to champion design principles across diverse audiences, including both design and non-design stakeholders.

  • Is comfortable with ambiguity.
  • Has strong sense of empathy for both the user and team members.
  • Is interested in building a global social safety net.
  • Thinks for themselves instead of copying others.
  • Creative and bold in the face of any problem.
  • Intellectually honest and has high integrity.
  • Has experience working in globally distributed and remote teams in a tech start-up environment would be a bonus.

🧘 What we offer:
