Senior Product Designer – Onboarding (Remote – Work from Anywhere)

Position overview

Are you the type of person who disassembled the family TV when you were a child, just to see how it works? Or maybe you were so obsessed with your coin collection that you raised an expedition in search of a 1794 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar.

Maybe your teachers feared you because of your urge to always ask ‘why’? If this sounds like you then we need to talk.

We are on the lookout for a Senior Product Designer to join our onboarding team through discovering, defining, developing and delivering the best user experience for our international customers.

The interview process

  • If you are successful in your application a member of the Talent Team will reach out to kickstart the interview process with an initial interview someone from our talent team will setup an introductory call.

    The next call will be with our Design Lead and if that call is successful you will be invited to a 40 minute whiteboard challenge.

    The whiteboard challenge is designed to understand your thought process as a Designer and problem-solving capabilities.

    It is not to test how good you are, more to see your thinking as a designer and how you solve problems in your own unique way.

    Finally, you will meet with our Chief Product Officer.
