Product Designer

| Greater NYC Area
At Abacus, we're reimagining the way businesses move money, starting with the first real-time employee expense system. We’re excited about building tools that are not only effective but enjoyable for everyone to use. Creating the best customer experience drives us — we love hearing everyday how what we're working on is saving our customers time and headaches. Making expense reports obsolete is only the beginning — join a team that is leading the charge in how businesses manage their cash flow.
We’re looking for a Product Designer to join Abacus! You will play a key role on our close-knit, collaborative team. You’ll help us refine the simplicity of Abacus, as well as lead the design of projects in the pipeline. You’ll work across our mobile apps and on the web. We have big UX challenges to solve, and you’ll be uniquely positioned to contribute solutions.

What you’ll do

  • Collaborate cross-functionally with engineers and the entire Abacus team to solve customer problems
  • Own and participate in the product design process, from sketching, through building prototypes, on to implementation
  • Solicit feedback from the team and from customers
  • Work within and expand the Abacus style

What we’re looking for

  • You have an outstanding portfolio showcasing your work and strong design skills
  • You are able to take a rough product spec and run with it
  • You have a refined aesthetic sense and an appreciation for composition, density, and whitespace
  • You think in terms of design systems, both within and across projects
  • You thrive in a collaborative environment with short feedback loops
  • You understand technical constraints, and know when to work within constraints vs. when to challenge them
  • Bachelor's Degree or equivalent practical work experience in design
  • Familiarity with HTML and CSS a big plus
  • Familiarity with iOS, Android, and modern design tools a plus

An Insider's view of Abacus

What are some social events your company does?

Pancake breakfast is a big tradition at Abacus - each month a few people are picked to make the entire company a breakfast of their choosing. We also rotate members on our fun committee each quarter to plan unique outings for the whole team.

Ted

Chief Product Officer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Abacus is changing the game for expense reporting software. Other platforms out there have really just digitized an old, outdated process. We're solving the problem in a different, more efficient way and really helping growing teams with a more scalable solution.

Bethany

Vice President of Marketing

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started my career at Abacus as a Business Development Representative. During my time here, I have had the opportunity to become the inaugural Account Manager and was then promoted to Director of Customer Success. As a small team that values people greatly, there's always an opportunity to gain exposure to new areas and to mold your own path.

Kalie

Director of Customer Success

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Team members at Abacus are willing to let their guard down and be vulnerable. This is the foundation required to create a trusting environment in which colleagues can vigorously disagree with one another. We believe this leads to better ideation and solutions.

Omar

CEO

What are some social events your company does?

Every quarter we name a Fun Committee to plan outings for the team. We’ve done axe throwing, a harbor cruise, karaoke, rooftop bars. It’s a really fun way to get to know each other out of the office.
