About the Role

We are looking for a Principal Product Designer to join our Design team to create simple, elegant, and thoughtful solutions for Figure’s Marketplace, and Equity Solutions products.

What you’ll do:

  • Craft a consistent, unified experience for our users that’s easy to learn and simple to use.
  • Own design problems end to end, from initial concept through shipping and beyond.
  • Collaborate with peers in Design, Product Management, and Engineering to define product and design decisions.
  • Think systematically and work with the design system to make elegant and simple experiences that embody our brand.
  • Manage projects and shifting priorities to align the team, set expectations, and deliver designs on time.
  • Mentor team-members with your knowledge and expertise.
  • Work with a smart group of people who are pushing the boundaries for products in the realm of finance by participating in frequent constructive critiques and collaboration sessions.
  • Showcase your outstanding ability to synthesize and simplify complex data and break them down into actionable steps.

What we Look For

  • 6+ years of experience as a Product Designer that includes working at a startup and on software or system based products.
  • Experience in working on B2B2C products where you have to balance direct business customer feedback with the needs of the end consumer.
  • Comfortable asking questions, leveraging existing design patterns, collaborating with product and engineering to develop work flows and designs that are focused and intuitive to use.
  • Strong allergic reaction to complexity, and a desire to keep user experiences as simple as possible even as a product's functionality expands.
  • Proficient or familiar with Figma. Quick to learn and hone expertise in the tool.
  • Excellent communication and organization skills.
  • Bachelor's degree in a related design major or equivalent work experience.
  • You are an open-minded and accountable individual who respects collaboration and empathy with the team.
  • You have a keen eye for detail and hierarchy and evaluate your designs both functionally and visually to ensure user-friendliness.
  • You embody thoughtful and holistic decisions in your design process by evaluating all the information and constraints at hand.
  • You have a strong knowledge of user interface design processes and methodology across various platforms including web, OS-native apps, and embedded apps.
  • You know when to bypass minor UX testing and lean on your expertise to deliver results, but also know when to propose initiatives to fill in the gaps.
  • You thrive in a fast-paced startup environment, seeing ambiguity and shifting priorities as opportunities to make an impact.
