Lead Product Designer-FINTECH

London

Description

If you haven’t heard of Wirex, then you’ll now know why we’re recruiting – we’re a fintech secret on the cusp of becoming famous! With a genuinely differentiated product, we’re connecting crypto, currencies and convenience for users around the world – all wrapped in an app and armed with a VISA or Mastercard card that can be used to pay for the tube, swap currencies (digital and fiat), or buy ‘that’ new thing you saw last time you visited the local shopping mall.

Our consumers are many, and everywhere – but we’re looking to build and scale our brand. With 3 product offerings (APAC, NA and Europe) we’re a 24-7 diverse collection of people, from hardcore crypto geeks to people that are just passionate about being in fintech and working on a new way of making payments faster and simpler. What matters is your deep knowledge of how to meet needs and engage different users with intuitive and enjoyable product design.

We’re looking for a lead product designer to join us – if you love working with a genuinely international team, you’ll love Wirex – our marketing team is based in London and Singapore, our product & tech teams in Ukraine and our partners are everywhere! Organised, great communicators who can switch from 1 project to the next in the same day will be prioritised.
