Founded by two ex-Coinbase employees and backed by top investors including Andreesen Horowitz, Coinbase, IDEO, and Kindred Ventures, Goldfinch is a decentralized credit platform that is using crypto to empower financial inclusion around the world. 

Our vision is to build a global, decentralized network that allows anyone to be a lender, not just banks. Since announcing the protocol in January 2021, the loan book has doubled every 2 months. We now serve thousands of end-borrowers across three continents and over 10 different countries. And we're just getting started.

We're looking for a Senior Product Designer who is excited about working in a fast-paced, early-stage startup environment and is eager to make an impact in an industry experiencing explosive growth and change every day. You'll be involved in every step of the product development process, from brainstorming product strategy to delivering high-fidelity designs for web and mobile, and you'll work to build deep intuition for the needs of each type of user in our three-sided marketplace.

This role will report to the Head of Design and will collaborate closely with cross-functional teams to develop and execute on our product vision.

    • Present and effectively communicate the conceptual vision and foster ideas to help spread storytelling techniques to inspire the team
    • Contribute to the development of the creative team's culture and quality standards (e.g. proposing process improvements, helping to develop and maintain the design system)

You'll love this job if:

    • You are passionate about Goldfinch's mission and excited about the potential of crypto
    • You like to work collaboratively, both with designers and cross-functional partners 
    • You’re a self-starter who can make progress in the face of ambiguity
    • You are energized about working in a fast-paced startup environment and are flexible when it comes to adapting to change
    • You are a strong communicator and facilitator that enjoys taking ideas and inputs from many stakeholders and synthesizing them into beautiful products and services 
    • You are humble and open to the idea that good ideas can come from anywhere
    • You're interested in making an impact, both within the organization and within our new and growing industry

Qualifications:

    • 4+ years experience designing and shipping a web/app product for a variety of devices and platforms
    • A strong portfolio that reflects excellence in design craftsmanship and a command of visual design, interaction design, and information architecture
    • Bonus: experience working in crypto and/or emerging markets

Benefits:

    • Health, Dental, Vision and Life Insurance covered 99%+
    • Competitive equity compensation & governance token incentives
