Product UX Architect

Salary Competitive

Januar is a fintech startup on the rise, and we’re looking for a UX star to join our Product team.

About Januar

Januar is a young fintech company with big ambitions, officially founded in January 2021. We are a team of 30+ experienced people from diverse industries, coming together to build the leading one-stop crypto gate for European businesses.

Januar has raised its seed round and launched its MVP, which provides crypto companies with access to multi-currency IBAN payment accounts to collect and disburse payment to/from their own customer base. Januar has a Payment Service Provider Licence with the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority, enabling us to set up relationships with banks to integrate their infrastructure with Januar’s products and services.

We are still in the early stages and have much more to develop, so you will need to thrive in the fast-paced, sometimes slightly chaotic work environment, where team spirit and delegated leadership go hand-in-hand.

Your primary working location would be at Copenhagen Fintech Lab (Applebys Plads 7).

The role - why we need you!

As a UX Architect in Januar's product team, your mission is to work with the cross-functional team and various stakeholders to deliver carefully selected value-adding capabilities that support crypto companies in integrating their fiat and crypto financial flows better, faster and cheaper!

You will join the product team as UX Architect at Januar, where you will work together with our part-time current Lead UX, part-time UI Designer, Product owners and Developers.

We need you to gain an understanding of how users operate Januar’s current and future products. Your decisions are driven by analysis of customer/user behaviour, understanding the product value proposition, as well as expertise on common practices that you've gained from past experience.

Key responsibilities

You will contribute by delivering and testing new product functionalities in collaboration with other team members from the product and tech teams.

To succeed in this role, we see you contributing with these tasks:

  • Create wireframes and prototypes
  • Create business processes to document UX flows
  • Understand how customers interact with the platform to understand outcomes (vs. outputs)
  • Use and scale design systems over time
  • Strengthen structure and consistency in the UX process
  • Maintain documentation and product change logs
  • Develop the structure, IA and flow of the product
  • Potentially assist the Product Manager with product discovery, specifically user insight gathering

What you bring to the table

 To succeed in this role, we imagine you have most of the following...

  • At least 2-3 years' experience in similar roles with proven success to show during interviews.
  • Highly experienced with Figma, Sketch, Adobe XD or similar tools
  • Good problem solving skills
  • Solid understanding of interaction design
  • Experience with Lean UX processes
  • Understanding of information architecture
  • A good understanding of data flows and how to visualise them in your UX work
  • Experience with documenting design and UX; not just producing output but also arguing for made choices and the connection between different stages in a flow/concept
  • Great at communicating with internal & external stakeholders
  • Enthusiasm about the crypto finance products we are going to build
  • A strong sense of responsibility and accountability
  • Flexibility during Januar’s exciting start-up journey

It is a requirement that you live in Copenhagen or are willing to relocate at your own cost. It is furthermore a requirement that you are able to present a clean criminal record. 

It's a plus if you have...

  • A background with crypto, fiat payments, or the general finance industry
  • Past UI design experience
  • Knowledge about Product Analytics
  • A growth mindset and eagerness to learn
  • Fluency in Danish and other languages
  • A healthy dose of humour

What's in it for you?

  • A career in one of the most exciting crypto-finance startups in the Nordics targeting the full European market
  • Designing impactful new and exciting features to bridge the gap between traditional finance and crypto
  • An opportunity for you to bring in your expertise and make a strong UX mark on Januar’s product as Januar’s first full-time UX hire!
  • Salary according to qualifications and experience
  • A stake in the company via warrants
  • Significant flexibility when you work
  • Private health insurance
  • Learning opportunities, social activities, and events - you’re welcome to arrange some, too!

Your first steps

During your first months on the team, you'll learn about Januar, the industry we operate in, our delivery teams, and the current product roadmap. You will collaborate with the Head of Product and Product Owner, and align with different delivery teams to shape your work and your own development. Taking a Cryptocurrency Essentials certification is part of your onboarding.
