We’re designing the future of recurring payments, and we’re looking for a Product Designer to help us do it.
GoCardless is building a global network for recurring payments. We’re linking payment schemes from around the world to create a simple way of collecting payments from customers’ bank accounts. Our annual payment volume exceeds £7 billion, and we’re processing 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 Creative 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.
Using data, research and other tools you establish true empathy for the user to understand the problems you’re solving. You're aware of the technical implications of your design decisions, communicating with Product Managers and Engineers to execute designs.
You enjoy teamwork, empathise with team members and leave your ego at the door. You take shared ownership of product features and collaborate with other designers to develop design systems and standards.
You're a conceptual thinker. Exploring innovative ways to address problems and you take pride in crafting beautiful experiences using design and prototyping tools.
Act with integrity.
When faced with a difficult choice, you always do the right thing. Balancing user needs and business needs to arrive at an optimal solution.
What’s the role?
In your application, please include your CV and a link to your portfolio, and tell us about an interesting project you’ve worked on recently and what impact it achieved.
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.
