Senior Product Designer

| Greater NYC Area
Fundera is transforming the world of business finance by replacing old school loan brokers with a smart and intuitive online shopping experience. We’re a technology company first and a financial company second. But, most importantly, we’re fiercely mission-driven.
Entrepreneurs are the biggest job creators in our country. By building tools that make access to financing—one of the biggest challenges they do and will ever face—easier, we’re not only taking stress out of their day to day but enabling them to grow. They don’t say “it takes money to make money” for nothing. We’re a true financial advisor to these business owners, partnering with them to improve their creditworthiness over time and take care of all their future financing needs.
We’re a team of experienced technology leaders, well-funded and backed by industry-leading investors who are hands on in helping us meet our lofty goals.
We’re a young company—started in February 2014—that has helped over 6,000 businesses secure more than $300,000,000 in funding. We’re looking to continue this trajectory and need great people to get there.
Who are We Looking For?
The Senior Product Designer is an experienced product and visual designer with a successful track record of creating new experiences that rethink the way people accomplish their goals. You are a strategic thinker with strong instincts and a keen ability to take complex problems and turn them into simple and intuitive solutions.
Sound like you? Let’s meet.
What to Expect as our Senior Product Designer
This is a senior-level position that will contribute to Fundera’s product and visual design team and be responsible for the vision, evolution and success of our product and brand design. The Senior Product Designer can articulate his or her vision and strategy to the broader organization and work with senior leaders across the organization to incorporate their feedback and needs into a holistic design strategy.
Success in this role will be measured by the designer's impact on Fundera’s ability to achieve our business objectives and improve specific KPIs like conversion rate, revenue growth, repeat business, top of funnel acquisition, and brand awareness.

As a Senior Product Designer, you will:

  • Work with the product management and senior leadership team to define the vision of design at Fundera
  • Contribute to our product roadmap and set goals and timelines for design projects
  • Work cross-functionally with Product and Engineering partners to represent the design team, and give feedback in planning and product channels
  • Execute strategic work consistent and in support of extending awareness around Fundera’s Brand

What We're Looking For:

  • 5+ years of experience in product and visual design with hands-on experience turning complex problems into simple and engaging customer experiences for web and mobile
  • Experience working with senior leadership and multi-disciplinary teams in fast moving environments
  • Experience leading Design Sprints, team brainstorming and ideation exercises
  • Experience partnering with Product Managers to develop the strategy and rationale for features
  • Experience with prototyping as a means to explore and convey design solutions
  • An ability to solve problems conceptually in collaboration with broader team, including engineers, product managers, and data analysts
  • Knowledge of the requirements of the creative process including typical time and resources needed to produce quality work on time with efficiency, and to specification
  • Experience conducting customer research and usability tests
  • Master communicator (both written and verbal) able to effectively advocate for our customers in Fundera leadership and product meetings
  • Be action-oriented, manage projects through, and not let the ball drop
  • Be someone who wants to be challenged intellectually and work at a fast-paced, growing start-up that is changing small business financing

What’s It Like to Work at Fundera?

  • We want people who elevate the game—and we’re willing to pay for it. We offer competitive salaries and meaningful equity.
  • We offer generous medical, dental, and vision insurance—you shouldn’t have to stress about your health.
  • Yes, your Fundera family is very important, but your’s at home matters most. That’s why we offer incredibly generous maternity and paternity leave.
  • Everybody needs a little R&R—but we want our team to have more than just a little. You’ll get flexible PTO and we mean legitimately flexible PTO.
  • Our kitchen is full of a wide-variety of (mostly healthy) snacks to make sure you never go hungry. You can also always find coffee, seltzer, and more on tap to make sure you never go thirsty.
  • We sponsor bi-monthly catered lunches and company happy hours, and other events such as trivia, yoga, and visits to customers. It’s important to bring our team together as much as possible.
  • Connect with coworkers who share similar interests and join one of our many “clubs” across the company. For example, check out the Women Who Work or the Foodies of Fundera. Want to start a club that doesn’t already exist? You got it.
  • Our cross-team ETG Group makes sure our team’s happiness is always top-of-mind. The group implements a new project every quarter and committee members rotate every few months.
  • Transparency is what our product is built on—and so is our culture. Whether that means regular all-hands meetings, board decks circulated every month, or a highly-accessible leadership team, we’re all stakeholders in this company and never forget that.
  • Come to work with a group of supportive, talented, ambitious individuals who will teach you something new every day, whilst building a product that will truly and actually change the lives of America’s small businesses and job creators.

Insider's spotlight

How does your team reward individual success?

Fundera does a great job at rewarding and recognizing employees for their contributions to the company and success in their individual roles. This quarter alone, I received a trophy at our company-wide meeting, an all-expense paid vacation and went to a top performers dinner with Fundera's leadership team.

Nate

Sr. Account Executive

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We have an interesting challenge of marrying small business data with a qualitative view of who small business owners are and what they want. Our team is passionately invested in helping as many small business owners meet their goals possible, and it is a fun exercise to make sure we’re working on what is going to make the biggest impact.

What are some things you learned at the company?

In addition to scheduling educational seminars and providing a budget to take outside courses, Fundera supports career growth by trusting its employees to take on new responsibilities and to do them well. An environment which emphasizes teamwork and leadership gives me the chance to learn from other leaders around me and to be a leader myself.

Gabrielle

Business Operations Analyst

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

Often, our own research influences product choices or sales enablement. It’s cool to think about how each department shares their expertise and understanding of our customers. What I think is particularly interesting about my team in terms of influencing direction is that I don’t think any of us realized how much Content would do for our business!

Meredith

VP of Content

What is your vision for the company?

Today, Fundera is finely tuned to simplify the complexities of applying for small business loans. In the future, we hope to become a trusted partner to small business owners everywhere to help them achieve any and all of their financial goals. When you think about the financial health of your business, we want you to think about Fundera first.

VP of Engineering
