About the role

About Us

At Levro (YC S21), our mission is to build the financial backbone for global commerce. We are building financial infrastructure to allow any company to frictionlessly expand to any country. We help companies avoid complex/costly conversions, by holding 30+ different currencies in one US bank account. This means they can receive and pay funds internationally as if they had a local bank account, and our FX conversion fees are 4-8x cheaper than traditional banks.

Opening a bank account abroad as a business can be really hard: it can take up to 6 months in the UK, and you often even need to fly to Canada to open a Canadian bank account! Once accounts are open, banks charge high fees to convert between currencies, and the setup can be complicated to administer.

We closed an oversubscribed seed round from incredible fintech investors and operators, including YCombinator and the founders of Yahoo, Eventbrite, Monzo and others. We're 2x YC founders and experienced operators - Cathy founded a big data SaaS business that processed over $4bn in transactions, and Abeer built a hedge fund with over $1.5bn in AUM. As immigrant founders, we want to build the best global business bank, to give makers access to more markets and make finance as global as commerce.

Role Description:

As an early Product Designer, you will drive the look, feel, and flow of our product. You’ll work closely with a team of experienced engineers to tackle the visual and UX flow in culture empathizes with our customers, users, and other team members.

What You'll do:

  • Take our product from 0 to 1 by owning the entire design stack - from specs to workflows, from interactions to high fidelity visuals
  • Work closely with the founders to influence, develop, and implement product design and roadmap
  • Develop subject matter expertise in areas like international banking, card issuing, and machine learning for lending
  • Prototype multiple visual and UX concepts, and drive the process to identify the right design choices for our product
  • Pitch in on many surprising, daily challenges that come up in an early-stage start up

What We're Looking For:

  • 5+ years of design, with at least 2+ years in product design
  • Experience designing complicated systems for non-technical users across multiple form factors (desktop, mobile, etc)
  • Strong sense of design aesthetic
  • Low ego, highly intelligent, quick learner eager to roll up your sleeves and tackle any tasks - big or small.
  • Experience in working in financial services is nice, but by no means a requirement.

We use Flask, and React JS on the front end. We're completely dockerized and use AWS
