Job Description

Who is Credible?

We believe life’s changes create financial needs for people and that the traditional financial system often puts up unnecessary obstacles. People celebrate major milestones like going to college, getting married, and buying a home. And most of the time, these milestones come with financial implications.

At Credible, we have built a company with the mission of bringing transparency, choice, simple processes, and savings to accessing credit for life’s important moments. What you see is what you get. We are committed to being upfront, honest, and clear about your options. There are no mysteries, no hidden fees, and no secret clauses.

Credible is a fast-growing Fintech company that is disrupting the lending market and helping people save money and get out of debt faster.

  • Drive connectivity across teams, ensuring a unified, holistic approach to the design of our product experiences
  • Establish appropriate systems and processes to enable teams to consistently ship with high quality and velocity as we scale
  • Recruit and support the onboarding of new designers as the business grows

  • Strong product thinker, with exceptional product judgment and design taste, and an ability to consistently guide teams to successful user experience outcomes that create business value
  • Proven track-record of helping others develop their craft in research, interaction design, and visual design, both directly and by employing external resources where appropriate
  • A compelling portfolio that demonstrates experience building design teams, managing design processes, leading design projects, crafting design systems, working through complex user flows, and shipping products that are functional, intuitive, and visually compelling
  • Experience driving continuous improvement in team processes through periods of growth
