About the role

At Nova Credit, our mission is to power a more fair and inclusive financial system for the world.  Nova Credit’s diverse global team is stitching together the world's credit data into a single network to unlock financial opportunities for immigrants and other populations historically excluded from the credit system. We’ve built a platform that enables lenders to access a single, predictive cross-border credit database to help enable underwriting decisions. We are backed by leading investors, including Kleiner Perkins, General Catalyst, and Index Ventures.

As Nova Credit’s Senior Product Designer, you will work with a fellow designer and the product team to establish the company’s overall design direction. You will work collaboratively across the organization to visualize business and user goals through the design of features and experiences that serve the millions of newcomers seeking to establish themselves in the US each year. You will make a monumental impact on the company’s design and its users.

This is a full-time role and can be fully remote.

  • Become an industry expert who can advise current lending customers across multiple verticals about their overall qualifications and application experiences 
  • Act as the key partner of prioritization and execution with our product management and engineering functions across a wide range of requests: from revamping our consumer onboarding flow to redesigning how lending institutions use underwriting tools 
  • Improve, iterate on, and maintain Nova Credit’s design system, resulting in better consistency between products and improving developer velocity


  • Develop the user journey for a historic platform of products and services that drive financial inclusion within the US and across the globe 
  • Drive the organizational elements of our design function across our multiple product lines
  • Help to drive $MM in ARR for the organization by working in both B2B and D2C spaces, and converting our highest-value consumers across multiple verticals

  • A portfolio that demonstrates a breadth of both UX and UI work
  • Skillful at creating high-fidelity mockups using the latest design tools (e.g. Figma)  
  • An ability to collaborate with a cross-functional team, including product, engineering, consumer insights, customer success, and marketing  
  • A passion for visual and interaction design systems, and an ability to understand the big picture while still sweating the details
  • The strength to work independently and make forward progress by proactively identifying blockers and seeking out ways to overcome them


  • Expertise designing for a multi-sided marketplace, preferably within the financial services industry
  • Conceptual understanding of popular front-end frameworks like React
