GoCardless is designing the future of recurring payments. It’s our mission to take the pain out of payments so our merchants can focus on their business. We help to do this by linking together payment schemes from around the world to create a simple way of collecting payments directly from customers’ bank accounts.
A bit about Design at GoCardless
Design at GoCardless is made up of Creative and Product Design. The Creative Design team embraces a large variety of principles from print and illustration through to 3D and motion design. We pride ourselves on being an in house team that functions as an agency while benefiting from in-depth industry knowledge and having the freedom to push creativity in an exciting new tech sector. We have the ambition to lead the way for brand design within our industry and are looking for outstanding people to help us. We’ve just secured our Series E funding of $75 million which means we’re investing heavily in our brand and going global as a business, so it’s a great time to join!

What you’ll bring to the team
Okay, so what’s the role?
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.
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.
