Job description
At January, we work to ensure that borrowers who fall behind on debt are treated with dignity. Owing to outdated processes and bad actors, traditional debt collection is rife with harassment and fraud. Our products tackle this by helping financial institutions modernize collections, giving borrowers simpler and more compassionate ways to get back on track.
Because of the pandemic, there’s never been a more important time for our mission.
As a Senior Product Designer at January, your work will help borrowers get out of debt and creditors build stronger credit ecosystems. You will help drive our product design strategy through an obsession with the needs of borrowers and creditors. You will work closely with all departments at January, including product, engineering, and analytics to bring new opportunities to life.
You’ll be the voice of our users, helping us make more empathetic experiences for borrowers and more streamlined experiences for creditors. You’ll own all aspects of the design process from user research, to feature ideation, to wireframes, and final designs. This role is perfect for a design leader that wants to have an outsized impact on the direction of a company and product.

  • Strong communicator that can oversee the user experience of a product from conception to launch in partnership with product managers, engineers, and analytics partners.
  • Ability to take broad ideas and turn them into something actionable and useful.

What we can offer you:

  • Hybrid and remote work opportunities, allowing you to work in the office and from home on a schedule that works for you
