Early-stage Fintech-startup seeking a Product Designer | Remote

Salary Competitive

We’re looking for an experienced Product Designer that wants to join us building a budget (“financial forecasting”) SaaS tool for mainly other startups and e-commerce companies. If you’re a pixel-perfect UI/UX designer who’s entrepreneurial at heart and wants to experience a venture journey from the cockpit, we’d love to have you onboard!

The founding team consists of a serial entrepreneur, a former McKinsey consultant/SaaS CFO and a Lead Engineer with over 20 years of experience. Our vision is to empower all the SMB CFOs out there with a supercharged tool for financial planning and analysis and we’re in need of a Product Designer to help us make that happen.

Your role:

As the Lead Product Designer in Francis, you will be responsible for everything related to the product design. Keep in mind that we're at an early stage, which means that your job will evolve fast. Your first activities would be to get up to speed on our validated learnings, whereafter you’ll wireframe the first and launchable version. You’ll work with the team to constantly iterate on the product and explore different ways we can solve user problems, so that we can test them through design before implementing them. Since we're at an early stage, it’s a good fit if you take responsibility for the processes around you and give constructive feedback if you feel something can be done in a better way. There is an opportunity to become a more integrated part of the team as we grow, if the chemistry is right.

Concrete activities

On the short term, we imagine that you’d be executing on activities like:

  • Finalize the design for the first launchable version

  • Iterate on the product design

  • Participate in meetings with actual customers and/or interviewees to get insights

  • Iterate on our mapped user insights

How we work:

We're a 100% remote team. We believe in agile principles, we like to listen to Marty Cagan and Teresa Torres and love to read business literature around IT, agile and lean. We believe that too many features are being developed without having problem/solution fit and that some of the biggest mistakes that startups are doing, can be prevented by de-risking early in the process through design. Even though we love agile, we believe that in 2021, the primary measure of progress isn’t working software, but validated learnings – learnings that rightly so can be validated through working software, but in many cases can be validated faster and cheaper through design. Because of this, we work with both a product discovery and product delivery track, so that we de-risk our feature requests by validating them through research, before we even consider developing them.


Please reach out to us if you have any questions. After the initial screening we will conduct a telephone interview followed by a remote interview.
