Customer Acquisition
We’re looking for an experienced product designer to help us on our mission to make mortgages easier.

A mortgage is the biggest financial commitment most people ever make. At Habito we want to make getting a mortgage easier, simpler, and maybe even a little delightful. As a product designer at Habito, you'll be at the heart of that – helping us build an experience that puts customers in control.

You'll work in our Acquisition crew: a group of researchers, product managers and engineers responsible for bringing new customers to Habito, and giving them a useful, relevant experience with us. You'll design everything from information pages, to calculators, to sophisticated tools that make the complex, simple.

We work in an agile way: starting with research and concept, building an MVP then continuously iterating based on what we learn. You'll work closely with researchers, whose insights will inform your work, and pair with engineers to make sure it's implemented as it should be.

There are 11.1 million mortgages in the UK, and just as many types of customers and needs. If that's a challenge that excites you, we'd love to hear from you.
