Senior Product Designer (UI)

B-Social’s vision is to change people’s behaviour with money for good by building the best social bank on the planet. We want to change behaviour forever, for the better and for society.

We are currently in the exciting process of rebranding to Kroo where you’ll have a big impact on the future of our social current account.

B-Social was founded in 2016 with a team of technology, marketing, legal and banking professionals. Since the start, we’ve adopted a lean and agile approach. We run experiments to validate ideas early on, collaborate closely on design and development and build customer feedback into our process. We also regularly hold whole company retrospectives to continuously improve the way we work.

We’re looking for a Senior Product Designer (UI) to be part of our team of 30 based in London. In addition to working within our cross-functional product teams, this role will provide you with the opportunity to shape, and potentially lead, our product design community as we grow and evolve.

What you will do:

  • Champion design within the organisation and always raise the bar when it comes to visual design for the Kroo app and overall brand.
  • Design effective and beautiful UI visuals that delight customers across iOS, Android and the web.
  • Bring our app to life via beautiful transitions, animations and movement.
  • Shape our product strategy together with product managers.
  • Work with the founders, product managers, developers, and other designers to build a product that delights our customers.
  • Be involved at every step of the product design and development process, from early discovery through to ensuring design quality through to launch.
  • Influence, iterate and improve the shape of the product while considering technical constraints and business goals.
  • Support the hiring process, along with mentoring and inspiring others to build an awareness of design thinking across all parts of the business.
  • Occasionally pick up wider design projects for the Kroo brand on marketing or social media channels.

What we are looking for:

  • You have over 4 years of design experience creating solutions for mobile apps and digital experiences, not just websites.
  • You are a creative at heart and design is your passion.
  • Have a great portfolio that showcases deep interaction and visual design skills.
  • Worked in close collaboration on a brand identity or rebranding exercise.
  • Have the ability to take projects from concept to completion, doing everything possible to ensure their success.
  • Highly proficient with design and prototyping tools (e.g. Sketch, Figma, InVision)
  • You're passionate about getting the details right and love to play around in Adobe After Effects, Principle, Framer or other similar tools with animations, transitions and motion.
  • You are comfortable with sharing and presenting your ideas and learnings both internally and externally (blog posts and speaking opportunities).
  • You’re passionate about accessibility and inclusive design.
  • You enjoy working in a diverse, inclusive environment and care about supporting this culture.

What we offer you:

  • A competitive salary and options in a fast growing fintech start-up.
  • An environment that adopts industry-leading product development practices.
  • An ethically conscious company that is truly trying to change the industry.
  • An awesome cross-functional team to be part of — we are a highly talented and poly-skilled group of people.
  • Working with a fun, friendly bunch of people in a diverse environment — we go out regularly for socials - team lunches, dinners or we host events in the office.
  • Macbook Pro and all the accessories needed to get the job done.
