Principal Product Designer

We are seeking a Principal Product Designer to join our Design team.

About Modularity

We are designing collaborative business software that empowers Finance teams to lead their company from prioritization of objectives through to execution; aligning daily activities, purchases, and investment decisions with the company's strategic bets.

We’re fully funded by some of the top VCs in the world. We have an elite set of advisors and investors. Some of them include:

  • The current CPO at Adobe
  • The former CFO of Mozilla
  • The former Head of Finance at Uber
  • And many many more

Finance is broken, and we’re fixing it.

As a member of the Modularity design team you will lead in creating an all in one financial automation & communication platform that enables our customers to:

  • Remove low leverage administrative work from their day
  • Instantly communicate financial data to their entire organization
  • Focus on what matters

Modularity Values

Our mission is to design collaborative business software that empowers Finance teams to lead their company from prioritization of objectives through to execution; aligning daily activities, purchases, and investment decisions with the company's strategic bets.

  • Be outcome-driven. Our core goal is building exceptional products. This means we often define our own responsibilities in order to focus on what's most important: getting the right things done.
  • Hear then teach customers. We seek their feedback from their action and inaction. Every interaction is an opportunity to take insights back to the team.
  • Take ownership for solving customer needs until they love it. No feature is complete until a customer uses it and demonstrates success with it. Every person who works on a feature is responsible for customer feedback.
  • Use your hammer. We walk around with our skills and fix problems we encounter. When we find problems we can quickly solve, we notify the team we are fixing them rather than ask for permission.
  • Document decisions and alternatives. We always document a second option to expand our thinking.
  • Create Straw Man Proposals. We do not wait for answers to questions. We rapidly propose a solution then share for feedback.

About the Role

We are searching for a talented Principal Product Designer who will lead our design team and enable them to elevate the company's design practices. To be perfect for this role, you should be a critical yet compassionate design leader who is more than comfortable with mentoring more junior designers.

What you will do

  • Lead the design team and serve as the team's main representative during leadership meetings.
  • Work with the company's leadership to create design strategies across the organization.
  • Be a bridge across disciplines, such as Product, Engineering, and Marketing.
  • Deliver consistent user experience across the product.
  • Raise the standards not only of our design efforts but also that of product strategy and execution.
  • Help other designers grow and improve by serving as a mentor to them.

Who you are

  • You have past experience designing digital products and systems and have helped shipped products, ideally in the SaaS/B2B space
  • You have ample experience setting up frameworks and brainstorming initial design concepts.
  • You are a master at user-centered design methods and best practices.
  • You can grow design practices to provide a unified product, from concept to implementation.
  • You thrive in a collaborative and agile work environment.
  • You have the power to impact others and advocate for consensus.
  • You can produce results independently as well as collaboratively in a team.
  • You're able to step back and see the whole ecosystem and provide solutions that better the entire user flow not only the feature.

Benefits of working at Modularity

  • Fully remote workplace.
  • Currently a stealth mode Fintech startup.
  • We’re fully funded by some of the top VCs in the world.
  • You’ll get the chance to work with our primary design partner -- Elon Musk’s brain-machine interface company, Neuralink.
