Since founded in 2013, we have funded over $5 billion dollars worth of loans across 23,000+ projects becoming the nation's largest hard money lender.

The Role

You'll partner closely with other members of the design team, developing and promoting user experience as a core practice within our product lifecycle. You'll also work in close collaboration with Product, Engineering, Data Science, and other partners.
You will understand the goals, motivations, and behaviors of our customers and relentlessly advocate on their behalf. Applying that knowledge to our shared vision of the future, you will work collaboratively with partners across the organization to build a UX vision, including high-fidelity mockups and prototypes, to conceptualize and implement new product initiatives.

Partner in all phases of the product development lifecycle, including product ideation and definition, user research, identifying deliverables, estimating effort, UX and visual design, usability testing, post-launch evaluation, and stakeholder communication.
Use all of the tools in your UX toolkit. These could include (but are not limited to) personas, journey maps, wireframes, design patterns, mockups, and prototypes.
Understand what fidelity to use in different phases of a project.
Create designs that address data, customer feedback, user research, and technical considerations.
Communicate interactive design concepts clearly and persuasively to the design team and your cross-functional partners.
Actively participate in frequent design reviews; give and receive effective, thoughtful critique; and know when and how to incorporate feedback into your own designs.
Synthesize qualitative user research to understand customer behavior.
Contribute to initiatives to improve design frameworks, tools, and processes.


2+ years of on-the-job experience, showing progressive growth in project scope.
Degree in Interaction Design, HCI, or related field of study, or equivalent work experience.
Proficiency in tools common to modern design work, such as Sketch, Figma, Adobe Creative Suite, Invision/Balsamiq/Axure, Zeplin, etc. (Note that these are examples; you do not need to know all of these tools.)
Portfolio demonstrating a track record of crafting and delivering visually compelling digital products that align customer needs and business goals.
Ability to balance multiple priorities and deliver in a fast paced, dynamic environment.
Excellent communication and written skills. Respectful when challenging assumptions, and experience giving and receiving feedback effectively.
You are reliable. You estimate work, commit and deliver on deadlines, and are vocal when risk arises.

As a Product Designer you will: * Act as an advocate for exceptional experiences when partnering with product and engineering on roadmap and feature execution. * Participate in and/or lead user interviews and research to better understand customer needs to inform design strategy. * Construct user flows, wireframes, and prototypes that effectively communicate design concepts for validation. * Develop and deliver well-documented, high-fidelity visuals that accurately represent Faire's brand and design system standards. * Present and communicate concepts, designs, and prototypes to stakeholders with clarity. * Contribute to and positively shape the design team's culture through collaboration, feedback, and process iteration. Qualifications: * 3+ experience designing digital products and systems. You have a breadth of knowledge of what goes into product design, from systems to visuals. * Great communication skills. You present design decisions and processes clearly and confidently, regardless of audience. * A collaborative approach. You're a great partner to other designers and your cross-functional teammates. * A growth-mindset. You're open and receptive to feedback, and can adapt quickly in a fast-paced environment. * A sense of humor. We spend a lot of time together-sharing gifs and laughing over lunch keeps us energized and inspired throughout the day. Why you'll love working at Faire: * We are entrepreneurs: We believe entrepreneurship is a calling and our mission is to empower entrepreneurs to chase their dreams. Every member of our team is an owner of the business and taking part in the founding process. * We are using tech and machine learning to level the playing field: We are using the power of technology and data to connect brands and boutiques from all over the world, building a thriving community of over 100,000 small business owners. * We build products our customers love: Everything we do is ultimately in the service of helping our customers grow their business because our goal is to grow the pie - not steal a piece from it.
