Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.

People’s relationship with their money is deeply personal and complex. Everyday they make decisions based on their means, whether it’s to make a purchase or invest in their future. We use design to rethink what personal finance can do for these individuals. We build experiences that give them freedom, security, knowledge, and a better quality of life.

Design serves a vital role at Affirm: from building narratives through data to creating products that help people make important financial decisions. As designers you are responsible for crafting experiences that solve problems people struggle with everyday. We hold design to a higher standard than most. It’s more than a tactic to build great products. It’s a helping hand, a new opportunity, a vision for the future. For us, design reshapes that relationship people have with their money and allows us to engage with them on an emotional level.

What you'll do

  • Work cross-functionally with Product, Analytics, and Engineering partners to represent the design team, facilitate design discussions, and give feedback in planning and product channels.
  • Collaborate closely with Product Management and Sr. Product Designers to design features in accordance with your team's roadmap.
  • Effectively manage your time and process to meet team deadlines.
  • Rapidly ideate and validate designs through sketches, prototypes, and testing.
  • Determine the information architecture and flows for your product features.
  • Create high-fidelity visuals and specifications for your final solutions.
  • Work closely with Engineering to ensure high-quality implementation and user experience.
  • Work closely with User Research to help synthesize and communicate research findings to inform business decisions and build even greater understanding of and empathy for our customers.
  • Solicit feedback early and often from your peers, including other product designers and teammates in your product team. Participate in weekly design critiques with larger Product Design team.
  • Help maintain our design system with other product designers, and advocate for scalable design solutions.

What we look for

  • B.A/B.S. in Graphic Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Science, or a related field/equivalent experience.
  • 4+ years experience in an individual contributor role, on a Product Design team.
  • An outstanding portfolio, showcasing a depth of knowledge in user experience, interaction, and visual/user interface design.
  • Experience in working and collaborating with diverse teams in a dynamic, rapid growth environment.
  • Experience in shipping high quality product experiences.
  • Experience partnering with Product Managers and Sr. Product Designers to execute on design deliverables.
  • Experience with prototyping as a means to explore and convey design solutions.
  • Experience in validating design decisions through user/usability research.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

An Insider's view of Affirm

What's something quirky about your company?

1 - In the early days, the sales team would strike a loud gong whenever they signed a deal, our engineering release emails for new features paled in comparison. One day an engineer brought in his tuba and in that moment, the deploy tuba was born, thoroughly one-upping the sales-gong. Now, several years later, tuba emojis are a company staple.

Senior Staff Software Engineer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

The integrations team interacts with many other teams across GTM, Ops, and Engineering. It's one of the best parts of being on this team because it makes the work we do varied and interesting. I'm most excited about working with those teams to define the right amount of process and ownership so that we are as productive as possible.

Manager, Strategic Integrations

How does the company support your career growth?

One of the greatest things about working at Affirm is that everyone around you is invested in helping you to learn and grow. I have been so impressed by the support and encouragement I have received from everyone across the company in taking on new projects and exploring different areas of the business outside of my day to day.
