About the role

We are looking for an amazing UI/UX designer who is ready to help build a FinTech unicorn and change the lives of underbanked Americans. We just wrapped up a Series A less than one year after our seed round and need to hire designers that will help us make our products easy to use and beautiful.

PingLend allows almost anyone to get a credit card regardless of their credit score by collateralizing assets such as gold, jewelry, watches, handbags, etc. This allows PingLend's users to build their credit and qualify for previously unobtainable financial products. Soon we will expand to every type of collateral.

We are building a platform that will be able to handle hundreds of thousands of cards, applicants, and every type of collateral. We need brilliant people to join our team to continue shipping product fast. We have a bank that wants to run a pilot program by lending through our platform and we need to move fast to get the cards on the street.

The first goal you will be working on is to refine our UX end to end across all use cases of our product and work closely with our engineering team to implement changes. You will ultimately be in charge of UI/UX for an entirely new credit experience.You will also work with a top outside branding agency to rebrand the company

Responsibilities:

  1. Own and Refine the UX across the product

  2. Make a beautiful UI for our app, landing pages etc

  3. Work with the branding agency to redesign our brand

  4. Work with the growth marketing team to insure a seamless customer experience

Requirements:

  1. Ability to work in SF office

  2. Ability to synthesize complex user flows into a simple experience

  3. Strong communication and interpersonal skills

  4. Beautiful designs

Nice To Have:

  1. Experience working at a top consumer fintech company

  2. Experience working on consumer brands

  3. Love for making products simple
