Pinwheel - Building a fairer financial system by unlocking API access to payroll systems.

More than half of Americans have a poor credit score or no score at all. Since most financial institutions rely on traditional credit scoring to assess risk, that means these people can't access affordable financial products. Instead, they resort to high-interest credit cards, payday loans, and trigger overdraft fees to make ends meet — which ultimately push them into deeper cycles of debt. 

Pinwheel provides an API platform that makes it easy to connect payroll accounts like ADP and Gusto to any app. By unlocking the wealth of identity, income and employment data that sits in these systems, alongside direct access to paychecks, we can help innovators build the next generation of financial products that increase access for the underserved while improving the businesses of our partner fintechs, banks, and lenders. 

Who are we looking for?

Pinwheel is at a crucial stage in our journey and we need someone to join our multi-disciplinary design team as we grow into the market leader for income data access. If you’re relatively new into your design career — 2-3 years — and looking to accelerate your growth and increase your impact, this role might be for you.

We’re looking for a maturing design generalist who has depth in brand and graphic design. You will be mentored by our Design Lead and work directly with the Marketing and Commercial teams. You will be solely responsible for our marketing and sales collateral — paid ads, info graphics, presentation slide decks, social media content, OOH advertising, etc. — and could eventually be our Art Director.

Plus, as the second designer on the team, you will be integral in defining and building our culture as we continue to grow.

What will you be doing?

  • Design of marketing and sales collateral such as paid ads, info graphics, presentation slide decks, social media content, OOH advertising, etc.
  • Brand design for merchandising collateral, including swag, booth wraps, and environmental designs
  • Building and maintaining an asset and collateral library as part of our Pinwheel Design Kit
  • Helping to build our design team and culture

What experience, skills, and qualifications are necessary?

  • 2+ years experience working cross functionally with software development teams
  • A strong understanding of Figma and its features
  • A growth mindset
  • Optional: Experience in the fintech industry, along with an understanding of its nuanced and complicated restrictions
  • Optional: bilingual and/or copywriting skills

Here at Pinwheel we love interesting stories and backgrounds, and value skillsets over traditional markers of prestige so even if you don’t feel you meet all these qualifications but this role still excites you, we invite you to apply!

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
