Product Designer (Fintech/Neobank)
At Sprout, we want to bring peace of mind & prosperity to millions of people in developing nations worldwide, starting with LATAM countries. Sprout will allow foreigners to open fully FDIC-insured US bank accounts from anywhere. Our mission is to democratize U.S. financial services to the rest of the world, starting with U.S. bank accounts and moving into other US-based financial services, such as stock market brokerage accounts, in the near term.
Our founding team consists of successful startup operators who built and scaled several companies, some backed by top venture capital firms. Our advisors have deep banking experience and expertise in some leading banks globally who joined us to help bring our mission to life.
About the position
Sprout is looking for an experienced product designer who can lead the overall product, design, and UX strategy for our mobile banking product.

Why is this role awesome
It’s a unique opportunity to launch one of the first US Banking Products in LATAM, starting with Mexico where the service is highly needed with over 30k users on our waitlist preregistered already.
