Staff Product Designer, SoFi Money at SoFi
Seattle, WA, US

Description

SoFi is a values-driven company on a mission to help our members get their money right. We create modern financial products and services that help people borrow, save, spend, invest, and protect their money better, so that they can achieve financial independence and realize their ambitions—from owning a home to saving for retirement, paying off their student loans, and more.

The opportunity
SoFi Money is a digital checking and savings account featuring high interest, no fees, and free ATMs. We believe that managing income and spending does not mean laborious budgeting or a complex network of accounts at various institutions. SoFi Money aims to be a one-stop shop for all the tools our members need to get their money right through intuitive design driven by research based insights. If you have a passion for UX design and think there’s a better way to manage your money than what is currently out there, then SoFI Money is the place for you. 

At SoFi, you’ll become part of a new kind of finance company whose ambition is to help our members achieve financial independence and reach their goals. We aim to be at the center of our members’ financial lives, and to help every member get their money right. We created student loan refinancing, addressing the biggest financial challenge of a new generation through a modern approach to lending and personal finance. Next we expanded our products and services across loans, wealth management, and insurance. SoFi Money—a modern take on a checking or savings account--is our newest innovation and disruption to the financial services industry. SoFi has achieved significant growth, with ambitious plans ahead, but to continue this growth we need great talent. And that starts with you. ​
