About Paladin

Monetary loss from cybercrime has just crossed $1 trillion this year. It's no surprise as most companies are underprepared against common attacks like ransomware, phishing, and fraud.

Paladin Cyber (YC S17) is building a holistic cyber risk solution. We make cybersecurity accessible through low-friction protections powered by AI, proprietary data, and delightful user experiences.

We're backed by Eniac Ventures, Fika Ventures, Lightbank, Y Combinator, Cyber Mentor Fund, and other leading investors.

About the role

You'll be working with a cross-functional team and help take products from ideation to scale. Your work will directly empower companies to effectively protect themselves against ransomware, fraud, and other rampant cyber attacks.

We’re looking for a multi-faceted UX designer who loves working through complex user problems and delivering high-quality interaction design. Someone who has an eye for creating elegant solutions that delight the end-user.


  • Collaborate with product managers to conceptualize, build, and refine user journeys across our broad platform of cybersecurity tools
  • Translate business requirements and user research/feedback into thoughtful, engaging, well-designed experiences
  • Effectively communicate ideas and design decisions to stakeholders and document appropriately for cross-functional partners
  • Create wireframes and prototypes to articulate your ideas, bring them to life, and establish structure and flow in preparation for Visual Design


  • 3-7+ years of User Experience Design experience, preferably in B2B SaaS
  • Bonus points for deep activation and onboarding experience
  • Online portfolio demonstrating experience producing sketches, wireframes, mock-ups, prototypes, task-flows or relevant design artifacts
  • A detail-oriented problem solver. You’re a creative team player with a structured approach to tackling complex problems. Your attention to detail is your strong suit.
  • A self-starter. You can take ownership of key projects working either as an individual contributor or with a cross-functional team.
  • A strong communicator. You have excellent written, verbal, and visual communication skills. You’re able to present your strategic thinking while thoughtfully adapting to new information.
  • A growth mindset. You’re hard working and hungry to make an impact.
