Flex is a growth-stage, NYC headquartered FinTech company that is creating the best rent payment experience. It’s hard to believe that it’s 2024 and paying rent on time is expensive, inflexible, and difficult. We’re here to change that! Flex enables our users to pay rent throughout the month on a schedule that better fits their finances and budget. Our mission is to empower as many renters as possible with flexibility over their most significant recurring expense. After deliberately keeping a stealth profile as we built up unprecedented investor support and an enthusiastic user base, we are looking for motivated individuals to help us keep our mission growing. Will you be a part of the team?

About the role

As a Senior Product Designer at Flex, you'll solve problems for a diverse community of people who are underserved by existing financial products. You'll own projects from end-to-end, beginning by exploring opportunities, and ultimately delivering solutions that improve the lives of Americans who might be experiencing financial hardship. All of your design skills will be put to use, from design thinking, to interaction design, and visual design. But you won't do this alone! You'll work alongside product managers, software engineers, and data analysts, with feedback and support from your fellow designers.

What you’ll do

  • Lead design efforts for critical consumer-facing fintech products and features
  • Own the design process from beginning to end, leading discovery, ideation, wireframing, testing, visual design, and production
  • Craft innovative solutions for product opportunities that have little or no precedent in the existing market
  • Identify customer needs through quantitative and qualitative research and existing data
  • Solicit feedback from and provide feedback to collaborators in order to maintain quality and consistency in digital experiences
  • Help maintain and evolve the product design system
  • Collaborate closely with software engineers and stakeholders to ensure your vision becomes a reality

Key qualifications

  • 4+ years experience designing and shipping software solutions for consumer-facing digital experiences
  • Comfort documenting and explaining your process and rationale behind design decisions, including leveraging data to inform decision-making
  • Demonstrated aptitude for getting things done to make your team successful – wearing several different hats when necessary
  • Native mobile application experience (iOS and Android)
  • Experience working with design systems and integrating them into the product development and engineering processes
  • Deep knowledge of design software (though we formally use Figma as a team) and interactive prototyping software (Principle, Framer, or Origami)
  • Comfort with ambiguous problems
  • Motivation to be a self-starter
  • Passion for financial products and improving people’s financial lives
  • A portfolio of work detailing your contributions to shipped solutions

The national pay range for this role is $150,000-$180,000 in base salary. Individual compensation will be commensurate with the candidate's experience aligned with Flex's internal leveling guidelines and benchmarks.
