GoCardless is building a new global network for recurring payments. We’re linking together payment schemes from around the world to create a simple way of collecting payments directly from customers’ bank accounts. Our annual payment volume exceeds £7 billion, and we’re processing up to hundreds of thousands of transactions per day.
It’s an exciting time to join us; we’ve grown from a start-up to a leading payments solution with an impressive track record of year-on-year growth. Working out from the headquarters in London, you'll join 300+ people in a passionate, data-driven and design aware environment. The Design function itself has grown from a small central team, into two strong disciplines with both Product and Communication Design working cross-functionally across the business.
Our designers come from a range of backgrounds, and we welcome diversity. If you’re unsure or even if you think your portfolio is not ready yet, please apply! We’d love to hear from you.

Start with why.
Before beginning any project, you take a holistic view, using data and research to refine a brief and understand the problems you’re solving. You're aware of the technical implications of your design decisions, communicating with cross-functional teams to execute the creative.
You enjoy teamwork, empathise with team members and leave your ego at the door. You take shared ownership of projects and collaborate with designers, sharing knowledge and skills to always push our design forward.
You're meticulous and organised, taking pride in crafting every design, no matter the size. You enjoy exploring innovative ways to address problems and always look out for new processes to improve us as a function.
Act with integrity.
When faced with a difficult choice, you always do the right thing. Balancing user needs and business needs to arrive at the best solution.
We’re building the payments network for the internet. Join us.
Since GoCardless was set up in 2011, we have been focussed on simplifying Direct Debit and opening up access to companies who could never previously use it. We already process over $1bn each year for thousands of businesses, and we are growing fast.
We work with a huge range of organisations: small gyms and scout groups use us to reduce admin; fast growing companies like Funding Circle use us to power their growth; established institutions like the Guardian use us to dramatically reduce failure rates.
Our ambitions go beyond this: we want to break down barriers so that businesses can quickly and simply start taking payments from anyone, anywhere in the world.
Over the last year, we’ve expanded our offering for larger organisations, like the Guardian and the UK Government. We’ve also added European Direct Debit schemes, so multinational companies can collect payments across Europe with ease. We’ve recently launched in France and Germany, and in the coming year we’ll continue our global expansion, as we create a global network for recurring payments.
We’re London-based, and backed by some of the world’s leading investors including Balderton Capital, Accel Partners, Passion Capital and Y Combinator.
