Our Design Team

Nu's mission is to fight complexity everyday to empower people. We believe that by building a truly global and diverse team we will be able to challenge the status quo and have a lasting impact on the world.

As a team who drives product development from ideation to full rollout, the Design team ensures that our product experiences are valuable to our users. Designers at Nu must deal with complex problems and transform them into intuitive, accessible and easy-to-use experiences for millions of people.

At each stage, a Designer must anticipate our customers and business needs, advocate for our users and ensure that the final design surprises and delights them. Achieving this goal requires collaboration with teams of Designers, Researchers, Business Analysts, Software Engineers, Product Managers and many others, working in projects that go from user interviews and prototypes to internal tools and brand assets.

Given this, designers must be flexible and eager to learn - it's unlikely that you'll arrive an expert in all tools and project phases, but you should be humble and have a strong desire and capacity to learn. It's critical that you are able to collaborate with people with varying backgrounds, give good feedback and apply critical feedback received. The combination of these skills along with your talent and technical competence as a designer can make you a great fit for the Nu Design team.

To help us grow and fight complexity we are looking for Senior Product Designers to join our Design Team. If you want to build the future of financial services, apply and send us your resume and portfolio.
