Who we are...

We’re global, we’re growing and we’re going to need talent to keep up the pace. We’re making payments simpler for over 4m customers worldwide, in over 90 currencies.

About the role…

WorldRemit is hiring a Senior Product Designer to help us design financial service experiences for economic migrants and their extended families. 

Product designers at WorldRemit are fascinated by the entire design process - from research to user interface design.   Whilst each person tends to have in depth expertise in some areas more than others, what we all share is a desire to become excellent all-round designers. Most of your time will be spent working with the product managers, developers, data analysts and QA engineers in your cross-functional squad.

As a member of WorldRemit’s Product team you will aim high, embrace challenge and always do what’s right; acting with integrity and building trust as you contribute to the company’s technical direction and long term decision making.




Reporting to the Head of Product Design, you will:
Work with PMs and specialist UX researchers to articulate the most pressing outcomes we need to deliver. Each cross-functional team is given the agency to tackle those opportunities as they see fit whilst still working towards the larger product and company vision. 
Plan research with our UX Researchers - whether generative or evaluative.
Facilitate ideation across the whole team through, for example, workshops or design sprints. 
Design a number of different potential solutions and prototyping them
Create beautiful UI utilising our fledgling design system whilst also pushing the system forward
Take part in our regular design team critique sessions where we support each other to our best work
Present your work to the wider company
Communicate your designs to devs appropriately and then working with them to design practical solutions to implement




 What we’re looking for from you…
You’ll be obsessed with typography, imagery, layout, colour and how they can be used to tell a compelling story to our users.
You can eloquently and persuasively articulate why you designed something the way you did; you are equally comfortable explaining that rationale to senior management as you are to other designers and engineers.
You’re intelligent, passionate about design, and endlessly curious. Your craving to learn new things is only outweighed by your urge to share your knowledge with others. You’re naturally observant and that awareness means you’re forever spotting ways to improve the world around you
You see yourself as a maker. You move quickly and are creative of course but you also have a healthy dose of pragmatism that tends you towards getting things shipped and in front of users
You work well with developers and can understand the limitations of digital products, whilst still pushing at those boundaries
 Being a great designer at WorldRemit is about driving people towards your vision of a better experience. Your optimism will help you realize that vision
You are keen to connect with our users to understand the motivations behind their behaviours and so create experiences that move beyond mere problem solving and engage them on an emotional level.
You’re able to work on a couple of things at the same time, whilst also dipping into other streams of work to provide advice and critique.
Domain knowledge in financial service products would be a nice bonus but you do have experience working on complex problems


What you’ll get from us…
Life assurance of 3 times your salary, should the worst happen.
Pension scheme offering 8% matched contributions.
Private medical and dental care plans.
25 days of holiday plus bank holidays, rising to 28 after 3 years.
Recharge days, 4 per year, 1 for each quarter
Cycle to work scheme
Various dining and shopping offers
