To play fair, trust people, and reward them for doing the right thing. We are obsessed with our product. We see and feel the impact of our work as more and more people gain financial freedom and retailers grow across the globe.

Afterpay is offered by top fashion and beauty retailers across the globe - including eBay, The Iconic, Gap, Myer, Foot Locker, Adore Beauty, Mac Cosmetics, Kathmandu, and many others. We are currently available in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, where the brand is called Clearpay.

The Opportunity
Afterpay’s ambition is to become the world’s favorite way to pay for what we call life’s little essentials – a new way of purchasing designed for and around our customers’ interests. We believe that great design has the ability to engage and inspire.

We are looking for a passionate and talented designer who has demonstrated the use of human-centered design principles to create and ship new digital product experiences.

Our designers are strategic thinkers and conceptual problem solvers who create new products, services, and experiences. You’ll work closely with product and technology partners during discovery and define phases to gather and translate data, research, and insights into usable and engaging applications through ideation sessions, design sprints, and creative collaboration.

The role requires a seasoned design craftsperson, with hands-on skills and the focus to turn conceptual thinking into tangible solutions for critique and user feedback. You will iterate quickly and have responsibility for your designs all the way through hand-off and delivery to our engineering partners. You will be the dedicated design voice through the development and deployment phases, seeing your work in the hands of end-users.

We are much more than our job descriptions - we are our energy, our ideas, our everyday drive. Here’s where you will begin…

-Solve customer problems by synthesizing behavioral information and imagining things as they might be, not as they are
-Conceptualize a broad spectrum of ideas and then narrow based on experimentation and customer research
-Collaborate effectively with other designers, content strategists, product managers, engineers, marketers, and researchers
-Solicit feedback and contribute constructively to design reviews
-Advance a strong point of view, backed up by personal expertise, design rationale, customer data, and industry trends
-Execute compelling UX visions, flows, wireframes, visual designs, and prototypes to product experiences with artistry, creativity, and mastery
-Push and evolve design frameworks and patterns collaborating with the design system and brand team
-Work on multiple projects at one time, using strong communication skills to manage time and expectations appropriately

About You
-Minimum of 7+ years experience in the digital product design field. 
-Experience working autonomously and leading independent initiatives. 
-Strong design point-of-view and comfort with challenging personal opinions.
-Experience participating in / facilitating design research, design sprints & ideation sessions. 
-Ability to turn conceptual and abstract thinking into tangible product design solutions. 
-Ability to communicate ideas and design decisions effectively. 
-Craftsperson, strong skills, and experience in Figma and design prototyping tools.
