Product Designer (6 months Internship)

Group: Technology | Function: Product DesignThis 6-month Internship is an opportunity to use Design to improve the efficiency and accuracy of our Product.

You will improve the way we process checks, time to process and quality of our service and ultimately impact on our key company goals for 2019, create customer buzz for our clients and attract new ones too.

You’ll join a Design team that has been recognised as a UX Leader in Identity Verification. We’re a team of smart, fun, humble and friendly Designers that are inclusive and welcome new perspectives. We’ll actively support your onboarding to the team which will give you maximum chance of success.

Your mission will be to support our Document team’s sprint work to meet the team’s goals and roadmap.

To do this you will:

  • Design solutions to problems identified by conducting user research on our analysts (80%)
  • Support two of our Product Designers in the discovery to lay out a vision for our service (20%)


At Onfido, we’re opening up online access on a global scale. Whether it’s sharing a car or opening a bank account, many of our everyday services are moving online. That means millions of everyday interactions now happen digitally – without people ever meeting face-to-face. Our mission is to help more people access those services by building trust between businesses and their users – a more open world, where identity is the key to access.

Today, we work with global customers to help them verify users, investors, drivers and guests across 195 countries and we’re backed by Salesforce and Microsoft.

We’ve pioneered AI-based deep learning technology to verify whether a user’s government-issued ID is genuine or fraudulent, and then compare it against their facial biometrics to reduce fraud and increase completion and speed…and we’re just getting started! Our goal is to apply cutting-edge research to build powerful, simple products that drive trust, inclusion and safety online.
