Senior UX Designer

We’re a Swiss FinTech startup that has built a very powerful AI technology to help companies automate their entire spend management across 150 countries and languages. Our level of technology is very new to the industry and is something we’re very proud of. Recently, we have also been nominated as one of Switzerland’s TOP 100 startups, are nominated for the FinTech award, have offices in Zurich and Vienna and will expand soon to other places.

While our team is growing very fast, we’re still missing a Senior UX Designer to further develop our fast growing and award winning SaaS solution. In this key role, you will be responsible for designing and launching new product initiatives while continuously improving and enhancing our SaaS offering.

Something that you should know before applying is that everyone at Yokoy is a small entrepreneur with a growth-mindset, high responsibility in their area of expertise but also a strong team spirit. We daily challenge each other’s thoughts, ideas and the status quo to not only become the best version of ourselves as professionals but also colleagues.

The role is „remote“ to the extent that the applicants is located close to any of our offices in Germany, Austria or Switzerland.

Tasks

  • Get to know our users (interviews, surveys, usability tests) and get to the bottom of what they need
  • Work on a cross functional product team to make our user experience easy and delightful
  • Develop and iterate wireframes and prototypes around customer needs. Validate hypothesis through testing
  • Create high fidelity mockups. Flesh out all the edge cases. Engineers should be able to take your specs and make it come to life, without too many unexpected hiccups along the way
  • Develop and own our design system and maintain graphic standards and branding throughout the product.
  • Actively promote the value of design and design thinking through your interactions with others
  • Keep up and keep us updated of competitor products and industry trends

Requirements

  • Solid related experience in UX and UI design, preferably in a SaaS fintech and startup environment
  • Strong portfolio of design projects
  • Bias for action – you need to get stuff done
  • Ability to thrive in a dynamic startup environment. You’ll have guidance when you need it, but you’re also goal oriented and can execute without close supervision
  • Excellent communicator – listen and understand users‘ problems. Be able to convey the proposed solutions.
  • Speaking English is required and German is a plus

Benefits

  • We love to see people thrive! You’ll have the resources to own and be able to shape things from day one.
  • Work closely with the founders and the leadership team
  • We’re fast – quickly measure and learn the impact of your work
  • We break things – we embrace making mistakes and learning from them
  • Grow – we’re growing fast, and you’re the expert. Help us shape our growth and take leadership
  • Flexibility – everyone has their own highly productive times – you have found your sweet spot? Perfect, we look at the output and not at what time it was produced.
  • Remote – we enjoy whiteboard sessions, but we have also learnt (thank you Covid) how to be efficient with remote working
  • Competitive startup package
  • You get one additional week of holiday on top and have a total of five weeks of holidays

This is important to us: Yokoy is an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status.
