Product Designer

Description

Radix is rapidly building the technology that will revolutionize how people save, invest, and spend their money. You, as a skilled and experienced product designer, will work alongside our engineers to create, iterate, and refine delightful user experiences that make the most of what that technology can do for real humans.

Blockchain technology is primed to remake the concepts of finance that have been essentially unchanged for more than 300 years. We are moving from a bank-centric world of monolithic financial products and services, to a user-centric world of direct-to-consumer financial apps and personal control of funds. Radix is building the first open network platform designed to enable this revolutionary shift at a mass-market scale. You have the opportunity to define the first touchpoints users have with the unique advantages of Radix-based finance, at the very cutting edge of a rapidly growing space.

Working within a fast-moving product team, you will bridge the gap from product concept and user flow to wireframes and high-fidelity prototypes of captivating and intuitive web and mobile user experiences. Rapid iteration of prototypes between user testing and engineering feasibility will be central to product definition, and you will be on the front lines of collecting and using this crucial feedback. Once confidence in the product is achieved, you’ll work directly with frontend engineers to produce a consumable design for implementation. You will be the master of the Radix brand guidelines, personally ensuring consistency across products, web, and design assets.

About Us

We're a team of like-minded thinkers who have long been convinced that we're living in the earliest stages of a global financial revolution. This revolution is being fuelled by decentralized finance (or DeFi for short), which is enabling an assortment of pioneering developers and entrepreneurs to re-invent almost every financial product that is currently traded and invested in traditional markets, without requiring central authorities or siloed infrastructure. DeFi has captured a great deal of attention and investment in the crypto-aware niche, growing assets under management from $1 billion to $22 billion in less than a year. Impressive as its growth has been, its current market size isn't even a rounding error on the over $111 trillion held in traditional finance. We're focused on what it will take to go from billions to trillions.

Radix went back to first principles to come up with the right technical solution—the first layer-one protocol built specifically for mainstream DeFi—and we have already tested out at over 1 million transactions per second. We're keenly aware that the need for an infinitely scalable platform is only one prerequisite among many for mass adoption, and we're also blazing new ground in the areas of user experiences, developer tools, and regulatory integration.

We have forged a path deep into the future of what distributed ledger technology is going to look like, together with the business case that assures adoption, and we need you to come and be part of the team that is making that happen right now. Join us!
