Senior Product Designer, Design Systems
SoFi is a values-driven company on a mission to help our members get their money right. We create modern financial products and services that help people borrow, save, spend, invest, and protect their money better, so that they can achieve financial independence and realize their ambitions—from owning a home to saving for retirement, paying off their student loans, and more.
SoFi is looking for a talented Product Designer to join our design team, focused on designing and building an end-to-end design system for our mobile and web apps. As a member of the SoFi Core Design team, you’ll work closely with other designers, researchers, and our Product and Engineering teams to bring consistency and simplicity to the SoFi member experience. You’re passionate about design details and think in systems, not just screens. You’ll empower designers and developers while solving meaningful problems and creating new design patterns and paradigms. You are detail oriented, understand pixel perfection, and can work independently under tight deadlines.
At SoFi, you’ll become part of a new kind of finance company whose ambition is to help our members achieve financial independence and reach their goals. We aim to be at the center of our members’ financial lives, and to help every member get their money right. We created student loan refinancing, addressing the biggest financial challenge of a new generation through a modern approach to lending and personal finance. Next we expanded our products and services across loans, wealth management, and insurance. SoFi Money—a modern take on a checking or savings account--is our newest innovation and disruption to the financial services industry. SoFi has achieved significant growth, with ambitious plans ahead, but to continue this growth we need great talent. And that starts with you.
