You’ll be responsible for all design artefacts produced; from initial discovery and user journey mapping through to the execution of final UI design details.
You’ll deeply understand the customers you’re designing for.

You’ll regularly work with a the management team and product leadership. This is to help make sure long-term strategy, business goals and experience quality are all in alignment and that there are healthy opportunities for visibility and feedback.
You’ve led the design of world-class product launches in a fast-growing company before.
You understand that good design is not about trends but is built on top of principles and tradeoffs. You make well-reasoned design decisions always advocating for the best possible user experience.
You’re passionate about inclusive design and accessibility, and you’ll design with all our users in mind.
You care about the UI design details but are also comfortable zooming out, seeing the broader picture and connecting the dots to create a cohesive overall experience.
You’re passionate about sharing your knowledge, and raising the bar for design practice at Punk Money. Previous experience mentoring designers is a big plus.
You understand that writing is designing, you’re a confident writer, and the copy in your screens is clear never an afterthought.
ABOUT THE TEAM
You’ll be joining a highly motivated founding team with the branding, ideas, business plan and products already in production. The existing team are banking, marketing and product experts who’ve already had excellent feedback and already have significant traction with their current product.
From the first hire to the last, from the most junior to the most senior it is important that everyone shares our core values:
Make it Happen: Punk’s always been a DIY culture and we’re all about getting things done. We’re after people who share this ethos, who roll up their sleeves and get stuck in and make amazing things happen.
Be a Champion: We’re a champion of the people. We stand for the little guy, the overlooked, the ripped-off and abused. We’re here to make a difference to people’s lives, not to challenge other companies.
Be Excellent to Each Other: This is us to the core. It means, do what’s right for all parties involved, even if it’s hard to achieve.
Be Brave: We’re the rebels with a cause. We’ve been ripped off by banks long enough. Now is the time to fight back, to unite, to create new services which are fairer, cheaper and easier to use.
Community First: This is at the heart of everything we do. We unite people and solve their problems as a collective allowing them to better understand their finances and get out of debt and invest their savings in other members so that everyone prospers.
If you think this sounds like your kind of place to work then we’d love to hear from you
