Lead product designer
👋 we’re looking for a lead product designer to join us in Paris!
At October, we're reinventing financing for European small businesses. We're making loans easy, smart and fast, by creating a platform directly connecting companies and lenders, offering competitive rates and returns on both sides.
October was founded in 2014. Since then, we raised more than €50m, and lent €290m to companies in France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands. Today we’re a team of 90, spread in 4 European offices (Paris, Madrid, Milan and Amsterdam).
Design at October
We think reinventing financing is a massive product challenge, that’s why we built October as a product-centered startup.
As lead product designer, your day-to-day would be:
- Designing and prototyping intuitive and accessible experiences across our mobile and web platforms.
- Recruiting, organizing and growing the design team.
- Working hand-in-hand with the product team on the roadmap.
- Collaborating with the tech team by communicating clearly about your design goals.
- Building and maintaining our design system, as well as our brand visual language.
A good candidate for this position would:
- have strong visual skills, passion for interaction design and an excessive attention to detail.
- have already shipped functional apps for both web and mobile.
- be a product lover — you cannot start your day without hunting down every new UX on the market.
- speak English easily.
We follow a 2-steps interview process:
- An hour long on-site interview with the CPO and potentially the CTO.
- A day on-site exercice, to meet the team and feel the mood.
We don’t believe in resumés and motivation letters. Just send us a link to your LinkedIn or Dribbble profile.
Life at October
We are a European startup challenging the status quo. We’re trying to reinvent an aging industry by gathering product-oriented passionate smart people. Besides daily stimulating challenges, we offer the following perks:
- The hardware of your choice.
- 7 extra vacation days per year. (RTT)
- Fruits and snacks all day long.
- Lunch coupons, and exceptional health plan.
Our main office is in the center of Paris (Saint-Lazare), but we gather once a year with the 3 other offices for a 2-days offsite.Posted 18 days ago Apply Now
