As a Design Director you'll:

  • Lead a team of designers to deliver world class experiences for a growing user base
  • Inspire great design from your teammates and care most about developing a team of designers to become the best they can be
  • Build processes to attract and hire more designers, and build (and remove!) processes to streamline the way we turn ideas into products that get delivered to our users quickly with a very high quality bar.
  • Care deeply about building an enduring brand, a product experience like no other, and listen to data and research from users to help your team create the best products they can imagine.
  • Be a great team leader that’s able to thrive in a fast-paced environment
  • Be supported by a strong group of engineers, product managers, content strategists, and marketers to reach our common goal - to help democratize the American financial system.

Some things we consider critical to being a Design Director:

  • BA/BS preferred
  • Minimum 4 years of design experience building excellent consumer products
  • Minimum 2 years of experience managing and developing diverse design teams
  • Execution oriented mindset - with the humility, drive, and scrappiness to get it done, but the eye and heart to make sure it’s something users love
  • You’ve debated different designs, and learned the times you’ve been both right and wrong when put in front of actual users
  • Most importantly, love and care of your craft.
  • You can’t wait for the opportunity to shape design philosophy and discipline on a small, high impact team, and grow it into a large, high impact team
  • You are an awesome designer yourself. You would be a great fit on the team we already have and bring a strong portfolio and consumer products experience.
  • You work quickly and know how to inspire a team to design for quality while moving fast. You set and keep the bar very high.
  • As a leader in the company, you care about building the processes to drive design through the full product and engineering teams to deliver best-in-class user experiences. You’ll get to collaborate with our founders, product leads, and in-house user research team to build the fastest growing U.S. financial firm in history

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
