On the frontier of design

We're moving through uncharted territory with brand new design challenges around conversation, UI, brand, TOV and applied machine learning AI that don’t have much precedent yet. We’re using all that to help people improve their financial health, solving money problems that make a very real and tangible difference to our users.

The role:

You’ll be joining a new, lean, cross-functional squad set up under our ‘New Bets’ pillar  to explore large ambiguous  new opportunities within a loosely defined theme or area that will have a major impact on the future direction of Cleo and our users by diversifying our revenue streams.

  • Polished UI and motion prototypes to inspire a new vision
  • Rapid concept testing solutions for users who are looking for immediate financial relief 
  • Identifying and targeting the specific needs of pre-acquired users looking for cash advances
  • Refining and improving product offerings through conducting in-app surveys and harnessing user feedback
  • Building an MVP to impact immediate user pain points related to earning more money, reducing bills, switching mortgages or insurance, selling items, and maximising tax deductions
  • Rapid testing and feedback with in-app surveys and other feedback mechanisms to quickly iterate and refine concepts to assess Product-Market Fit (PMF).
  • Uniting a new pillar of work around the identified user value
  • Ensure all solutions comply with regulatory standards while avoiding highly regulated spaces

About you: 

  • You should ideally have 5 + years of relevant experience as a designer including time working in a similar new bets, innovation or 0>1 focused role
  • You can share mobile app focused design work that shows high quality execution across UI and visual design, prototyping and creating early stage concepts through to MVP and launch
  • You are skilled at taking loosely defined or ambiguous ideas and turning them into tangible and practical potential solutions through an insights and research driven approach
  • You thrive on and have extensive experience in working quickly and iteratively to bring ideas to life quickly and to test and learn with users 
  • You are also a strongly outcome-focused individual motivated by the measurable impact your work has on our users and on the product whilst aligning with business OKRs
  • You are a strong cross-functional collaborator who can partner successfully with product managers, engineers and commercial teams

  • Step 1: An initial 30 mins intro phone call with a member of our Talent Team to learn more about your experience and why you want to work at Cleo
