Lead Product Designer

About Dharma

Dharma is the easiest place to save in dollars on the Internet — from anywhere in the world.

With Dharma, you can take your local currency — pesos, rupees, yuan, or dollars — upload it to the Internet and watch it grow in real time.

The innovation that lets us do this is a recent advance in cryptocurrency technology known as a stablecoin — a cryptocurrency pegged to the US Dollar. With the backing of the leading cryptocurrency companies like Coinbase and Polychain, we’re on an exciting mission to deliver radically transparent financial services that ​“can’t be evil” ​to any Internet-connected individual in the world.

We are a small resourceful team located in SOMA (near Montgomery BART) in San Francisco.

About Lead

Product Designer

At Dharma, you’ll be designing at the forefront of an entirely new industry. Just like the researchers at Xerox Parc who dreamt up the computer mouse in the 1970’s – you have the opportunity to quite literally invent and introduce new user patterns that outlive and outshine you. You won’t be piecing together building blocks from a design system, and spending your time working in the tight confines that upper management creates for you. You’ll be rebuilding the entire financial industry from scratch, on the internet. The way it was always meant to be. You’ll have the chance to get weird. Money shouldn’t be boring – it should be fun. You’ll get to define exactly what it is, how it works, how it feels and how it looks.

  • Product people who have taste and value design
  • Front end engineers who can execute UI flawlessly

Requirements

  • 3+ years of experience of design across digital platforms like web and mobile
