About Modern Treasury

Modern Treasury builds payments operations solutions. We believe that payment operations is at the core of every business. Our tools automate the full cycle of money movement—from payment initiation, through approvals, to reconciliation—and are accessible through web application or API.

We’re a lean team and we work hard to build outstanding products for our customers. When we succeed, our customers grow.

About the role

About us

  • We build Payment Operations solutions
    • Payment Ops are the workflows that move money for companies (ACH, Wires, RTP, etc)
    • This includes initiating transactions, processing approvals, and managing problems
    • These payment rails move ~$750T annually (compared to ~$4T on credit rails)
    • Payment Ops are a critical component of most businesses
    • The existing solutions don't address the workflows and challenges that developers and finance teams face on the daily
  • We believe that in the future, Payment Ops will be a real-time activity, rather than one driven by batch processes and humans.
    • Things are shifting towards digital and real-time payments
    • There's increasing demand from enterprises for better software and automation.
  • It's an exciting time to be a designer at Modern Treasury
    • We've hit product market fit, are well funded, and are poised to define and own the payment ops category
    • Design is critical to our future success. Shipping experiences that engender trust and peace of mind are table-stakes. Design is uniquely positioned to deliver on this front
    • You'll be the 2nd designer. Your work will be fundamental to our success as a company

You will

  • Collaborate closely with engineers and product managers to define, design, ship, and iterate on our suite of products
  • Flex your strengths- whether that's UX, building design systems, coding, illustrating, visual design etc
  • Explore and hone the skills you want to improve
  • Participate in both user research and customer success conversations. Understanding and empathizing with our customers is a paramount value we live every day
  • Play a key role in scaling our design org
  • Share your work within the design team and in broader presentations to the entire company & leadership

You may be a fit for this role if you

  • Have exceptional visual design and product chops
  • Have a high quality bar balanced with a drive to ship
  • Have excellent written and verbal communications skills
  • Have an enthusiastic desire to grow and learn
  • Want a breadth of experience over many products and projects
  • Are dedicated to personal accountability. As an org, we build cross-functional trust with our communication and follow-through
  • Are an advocate for the customer experience. Your process shows your empathy for the humans you're designing for

We would love to hear from you

  • Send an email to [email protected]
  • Include a portfolio
  • If parts of your portfolio involved group work, please explain your specific role in the project
  • Tell us briefly why you're interested in the role and a bit about yourself.
