About KOHO
KOHO is a quickly scaling FinTech company backed by leading investors and advisors from around the world. We started KOHO because we believe in doing two things:

Democratizing access to the best financial products and giving everyone a great financial foundation.

Since our journey began 6 years ago, we’ve raised more than $340M, grown the KOHO Collective to over 250 employees, and created accounts for more than 600,000 Canadians.

About the Role

As a Product Designer, you will be involved in every aspect of the product development process, from brainstorming new concepts to tweaking pixels. You will be using your skills in UX design, product design, interaction design, visual design and prototyping to create product experiences that deliver measurable value.

Our dream candidate has a passion for understanding our users, and is an enthusiastic team player who enjoys working closely with other designers, engineers and Product Managers to build better products. We’re searching for someone with great talent, super attitude and a passion for helping people through smarter designs.

What You’ll Be Doing
Work with Product Managers to develop and refine product strategy and vision (not just ‘how it looks’ but ‘why it should be built’)
Prepare wireframes, user flows, process flows, sitemaps and other artifacts to effectively communicate interactions and design ideas
Work within an iterative design process: rapid prototyping, incorporating feedback, launching quickly and testing hypotheses in an agile environment
Work as a part of an end-to-end product development team: collaborating with and providing design direction to engineers, understanding technical requirements of what it takes to implement your designs
Collaborate with cross-functional teams to influence all aspects of the product from copywriting to lifecycle marketing.

Who You Are
Experienced mobile UI/UX practitioner with 5+ years of experience working in a fast-paced environment
Strong communicator — able to present designs to different audiences and clearly explain the rationale behind each design decision
Proficient in user-centered design principles and processes including mobile design standards and best practices
Good eye for UI/UX design and mastery of the methodology behind creating amazing user workflows
An excellent collaborator who loves to work with others to understand and solve our user’s problems
Self-directed, thriving on ambiguity, using your creativity and scrappiness to figure things out
A creative problem solver who is highly resourceful in getting things done
Proficient in the latest design software (Figma, Adobe CC etc.)
Prepared with a strong portfolio demonstrating your design abilities and relevant product-building experiences
Well-versed in consumer social/financial/B2C product design
