Description

At TrueLayer we believe that bridging the gap between engineering and design is the best way to build solid and functional products. So we put designers, developers, and PMs together to build frictionless experiences. From our APIs interface to our developer console — there’s no problem that we can’t tackle at scale with intuitive, user-centric and beautiful design.

We’re looking for passionate designers to join our Developer Experience team and build end-to-end product experiences. As a designer embedded in a product team, you will mentor both product managers and engineers on UX/UI best practices, and promote a user-centric approach. From working on new features and pages to bringing new products to life - you will focus on creating functional and easy to use designs that developers love.

You will also have the opportunity to align with other peers in the Design organisation and to gain familiarity with the latest tools, processes and technologies, as well using a brand new, cutting-edge Design System we’ve built in-house.



Who we are:

At TrueLayer, we build intelligent financial infrastructure that puts fintech at people's fingertips. 


Businesses use our global network, built on open banking and PSD2, to securely access financial data and enable instant payments. Headquartered in London with offices in Milan, Dublin, Sydney, and Hong Kong, we’ve raised $142M to date and we’re trusted by some of the biggest names in tech, including Revolut, Trading 212, and Zopa.


We are systems builders, design thinkers, product crafters and committed doers. We work in a collaborative, transparent environment where people can be their true selves, embrace ownership and accountability, and build something that will define an industry. 


Our vision is to create a financial ecosystem that is open to everyone. We grew from a UK leader in 2020 to a global provider in 2021, operating in 12+ countries. The thing is, we're just getting started…

  • Work closely with PMs and developers as part of the Developer Experience team
  • Challenge product briefs and always drive decision making to build better experiences
  • Conduct research, competitor analysis and usability testing
  • Spec optimal user journeys and product functionalities
  • Design a platform that fits in seamlessly with our overall product offering
  • Create wireframes, graphic mock-ups and prototypes for all devices (responsive design)
  • Consume our Design System library and contribute to its evolution
  • Sit with developers to do pixel-perfect reviews of frontend products before they are pushed in production
  • Create decks, docs, FAQs and other design materials needed to support the product commercially
  • Collaborate with other designers and advocate for design consistency

All we ask is that you believe in our mission, take pride in your craft (and know what an API is).
