FinTech Scale-up (InvestTech)

Join a rapidly growing design team that is set to reach 40 people by the end of the year. You’ll be the fourth Product Designer on the team working under the Head of Design and supported by a dedicated research function.

The client

An award-winning, FCA regulated digital platform that connects retail investors with publicly listed companies raising capital.

They completed a Series B funding round of $50m from leading global investors and have been expanding internationally through their exclusive commercial agreements with the London Stock Exchange Group and Euronext, the leading pan-European stock exchange in the Eurozone.

It’s an exciting time to join as the expansion and latest funding is leading to a serious growth period and a big focus (and investment) on improving the brand and product. Getting involved now gives you a huge opportunity to shape the future of the business as they scale.

The role

As part of this growth, the product design team is expanding with the next hire being a Mid-Senior Product Designer. You’ll be involved in every step of the product process from concept through to delivery, ongoing testing and iteration.

The business acknowledge domain expertise and actively empower their team to give them ownership over their work. As such you’ll be able to work autonomously when necessary but have the benefits of a highly collaborative working environment where everyone is on a continuous learning curve.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Working with the wider team to create solutions for both customer and business needs.
  • Supporting with the creation of new features and tools for both B2B and B2C products.
