We have an open role for a User Experience leader to grow and develop our exceptional team of designers, and work hands on to design simple, accessible and progressive products for small businesses. You'll be part of building the tools that over 100 000 small businesses use to serve their customers.
This position requires an innovative designer, a clever problem solver, a helpful mentor, a team player, and a skilled communicator — all rolled into one. Hands-on design skills, a thorough understanding of web and mobile applications, and excellent leadership skills are all essential for this role. Ideally this position is filled by an individual who is either from South Africa, or who has lived in South Africa for an extended period of time, to enable their ability to understand the context and empathise with our customers.
We have a passion for financial inclusion and supporting small businesses. Our process starts with user insights, and then we iteratively design and build solutions. Teams of product managers, engineers, designers, data analysts, researchers - whoever we need to solve the challenge - own a customer problem and collaborate from the start of the journey to the end. Our approach is agile, we’re always learning and improving how we work.
