Work at Puzzl

Our product hunt launch: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/puzzl

Payroll is the backbone of American society. 180 million American employees earn over $8.8 trillion in payroll every year. Many companies want to embed payroll into their products to add an extra stream of revenue and offer their customers end-to-end platform functionality.

This is where Puzzl comes in. We build payroll for others so they don't have to. Learn more about Puzzl at https://www.joinpuzzl.com

If you’re interested in collaborating with motivated peers, leading a new category of embedded fintech, and changing the way people think about payroll, we’d love to hear from you!


With the overall goal to build something people love, we believe in investing in our design principles and branding now for the long term. We're looking for an experienced Founding Product Designer to lead early-stage user research + design and set the foundation for Puzzl's design strategy and philosophy.

You’ll help to define Puzzl’s vision, product strategy, and UX—driving the product design lifecycle end-to-end. In close collaboration with the product, engineering, growth, and customer success teams, you’ll break down technically complex problems and shape them into elegant, novel solutions that are discoverable, learnable, and powerful. And as an early member of the design team, you’ll also have great influence in shaping our processes, objectives, and growth.

The Ideal Candidate:

  • You want to own the overall design strategy and contribute to the overall product strategy
  • Excellent communicator--you’re comfortable working closely with engineers and other partners to ship a high quality product
  • Expert at Figma/Adobe and have a basic knowledge of React
  • You’re familiar with the customer discovery and development process.
  • You’re excited to help with hiring, mentoring, and creating a design culture within Puzzl
  • 3+ years of product design experience, ideally at a startup company


  • Own Puzzl's overall design strategy and contribute to the overall product strategy
  • Design simple and delightful experiences to complex problems
  • Generate pixel-perfect, high-fidelity mockups in Figma/ Sketch/ Adobe
  • User research to develop customer empath that informs design
  • Help develop company-wide design culture and design systems
  • Contribute to anything that needs an eye for design, including sales and investor materials
