Who we are

Stronghold is an early-stage financial services company on a mission to provide fast, secure, and accessible financial services for all by building infrastructure for virtual payment networks. We’ve been going deep to lay the underlying rails for modern payments and reach all customers with secure, transparent ways to move money. 

Who you are

You are a problem solver and design leader with experience in implementing the entire design process from start to finish and have experience working in a hybrid, cross-functional environment. You are flexible, have no trouble managing multiple projects at a time, and you thrive on learning in a fast-paced, dynamic environment. You’ve worked with design, product and engineering teams before and understand the collaboration that goes into building effective products that create seamless user experiences.  You have experience in both UI and UX design and understand the purpose of both focuses. You can take charge and enjoy working on smaller teams that may require you to get out of your comfort zone.
