Are you an innovative UX Designer passionate about blockchains, open-source & financial software and want to have an impact on a thriving space in its earliest stages: Decentralized Finance? Are you a hands-on person that knows how to guide users through complex financial products? We are looking for a UX Designer to join our team at Centrifuge.

About the company:

Centrifuge's purpose is to dismantle the existing financial instructure, strip it down and reassemble it for the 21st century. With Centrifuge we have launched a Decentralized Asset Financing Protocol that allows companies to access bankless liquidity. Our users are on both sides: companies that want to finance assets (such as invoices, mortgages or streaming revenue) using DeFi, and investors that are interested in investing in such on-chain portfolios.

About the team:

The Centrifuge team is a team of 15 people across different locations with the majority based in Berlin. Our culture is important to us and we value diverse backgrounds and origins. Given equal qualifications, candidates that increase diversity will be preferred.

About the role:

You will complement our product team where you will own the UX design process end-to-end from user research to launch to continuous improvement. You will be given a lot of freedom to implement your own UX design process and shape the role of UX in our product development. You will work closely with our BizDev and Engineering team to transform business needs and customer requirements into innovative and smooth user experiences.

In this position your responsibilities and tasks involve:

  • Rethink the user experience of our financial products from start to finish to identify and troubleshoot UX problems
  • Analyze existing features and redesign them to make them more intuitive to use
  • Collaborate closely with the product and development team before and during the implementation of your designs
  • Knowing your users and integrating user feedback regularly to create an intuitive, user-friendly financial product
  • Design and build detailed wireframes, prototypes and mockups of new features

Ideally,

  • You have extended experience with the entire UX design cycle, ranging from research up to the design of excellent wireframes ready for implementation
  • You have designed technologically complicated products for unsophisticated end-users before
  • You have an understanding of common financial products such as collateralized lending
  • You regularly use Figma to design products and collaborate with designers and developers
  • You are passionate about blockchain, have used DeFi dApps and believe in the opportunity of decentralization and blockchains to change how the financial world works today
  • You thrive in a startup environment and feel best working in a small, cross-functional team where you can roll up your sleeves and be hands on
  • You have an interest in working in a self organizing environment and bring creativity to start your own initiatives within Centrifuge

There is no preferred work location, but you will be working primarily with a Berlin and NYC timezone.
