We are a high-growth FinTech startup using data and machine learning to revolutionise the insurance industry. You will be joining an established team, working to build machine learning products that are fundamentally changing the way insurers see the world, enabling them to move from an assumption based understanding of risk, to an empirical, data-driven view.
What working as a Product Designer at Cytora looks like:
As a Product Designer at Cytora, you’ll initially be working within our Select Product team to rapidly collect and respond to our user’s feedback on early product prototypes. One of Cytora’s values is “Ship fast and iterate” - you’ll be tasked with living this value everyday. You’ll be expected to listen to our customers, craft prototypes (lo-fi and hi-fi) to test product hypotheses and test them with users.
Starting with user research (which you’ll play an active role in), you’ll guide a multidisciplinary team of Engineers, Data Scientists and a Product Manager through workshops to arrive at the right UXs and UIs to test and ultimately implement.
You’ll need strong visual and interface design skills, as what you produce will become our product UIs. Don’t worry, you’ll always be working alongside the developer(s) who’ll end up coding your designs so you won’t be throwing your designs “over the fence” and hoping for the best! That’s not how we roll.
What you will achieve in the first 6 months:
You’ll be joining Cytora during a time of product discovery, in your first 6 months you could be testing and rejecting 4-5 different product ideas. Alternatively your team may discover the next big product we choose to invest in bringing to market early on in your tenure. Either way, you’ll be working in a team empowered to make that decision themselves.
Regardless, you’ll be working to iterate on interaction and UI prototypes fast, receiving early feedback from buyers and users.
What we are looking for in candidates:
- A strong sense of the product design process, starting with user needs and culminating in hi-fi interactive prototypes
- Comfortable leading a team through UX workshops to plan and visualise how a product should work
- Proficiency in the modern design software of your choice (Sketch, Framer, Marvel, etc.)
- Experience working in a multidisciplinary, agile product team, that’s empowered to ship fast and iterate
- Experience working on financial technology products
- Private Health Insurance
- Pension Plan
- Training & Development
- Stock Options
