Traditional debt collection is rife with harassment and fraud, producing more consumer complaints than any sector of consumer finance. Debtsy is serious about driving systemic change in a predatory industry. We provide a data-driven debt resolution platform that’s built with empathy in mind, empowering borrowers to dispute, negotiate, and resolve their debt without stress or embarrassment while providing unparalleled transparency and compliance to financial institution clients.

We are growing rapidly: our team of engineers hail from companies like Fitbit, Uber, and Stripe, we are tripling headcount of the company this year, and have financial institution clients.

As a UX designer, you will be responsible for the development of user-centered design for all email, letter, and web interactions. You’ll work closely with our product and engineering teams from product conception to implementation. 

At Debtsy, you'll be an early member of a fast-growing company. You'll have a large degree of ownership and an outsized impact on our path and ultimate success.  We foster a culture of collaboration and open feedback, thoughtful problem solving, and continual learning and growth.

    • Conceptualize new features with engineers and product managers
    • Create user-centered prototypes and pixel-perfect interface designs by considering data, customer feedback, user research and technical constraints/opportunities
    • Be the primary decision maker for design choices throughout the application
