Description

In 1954, in Columbus, Indiana, Eero Saarinen designed a bank with glass walls, no offices, and a completely open floor plan. It was surrounded by trees; the furniture was made by Herman Miller; the lobby flooring was thick, rustic brick. The bank was built with transparency and community at its core.

Since 1954, a lot of things have happened—Saarinen’s bank branch is now a conference center, people increasingly live on the internet, and it’s hard to think of a single bank that still applies design thinking to their product.

Mercury is building the banking stack for startups*. We believe that in 2022 this revolves around thoughtful design, and we’re looking to add a product designer to our team to help.

*Mercury is a financial technology company, not a bank. Banking services provided by Choice Financial Group and Evolve Bank & Trust®; Members FDIC.

You’ll:

  • Take ownership of large portions of a complex product

  • Work across the entire design stack, including: speccing projects; designing workflows, detailed interactions, and high-fidelity visuals; and ensuring quality implementation

  • Find elegant solutions to user problems, and think critically from the user perspective

  • Simplify and cull design elements with a ruthless eye

  • Craft designs from first principles (referencing existing solutions is often a poor idea in banking)

  • Imbue mundane tasks and flows with a feeling of wonder

  • Prototype multiple visual and UX concepts and then narrow them to the right solution

  • Explain and debate the reasoning behind your product decisions

  • Work directly with the Design Team

You should:

  • Have the ability to design whole systems, not just interface elements or static pages

  • Have experience and interest in the entire design stack, including UI/UX, visual design, and interaction design

  • Have experience building for a variety of form factors, including mobile

  • Understand when no design is the best design

  • Have a strong personal design aesthetic and also understand the Mercury aesthetic

  • Want to create elegant, calm designs that predict and exceed users’ expectations

  • Feel comfortable anticipating and designing for edge cases

  • Understand the balance between perfect design and getting to market

  • Exhibit kindness and humility in everyday interactions
