What We're Looking For

Are you an energetic self-starter who wants to build something big and impactful from the ground up? Do you get excited by taking on a big challenge? Charlie is building the future of banking for the coming wave of millions of tech-comfortable retirees who deserve a bank built from the ground up for their unique needs, a bank they don’t have to get in line for, a bank that comes to them.

As one of the first employees, you will play a leading role in creating a simple, transparent and delightful banking experience for tech-comfortable retirees. This role reports to the Head of Product and you will be partnering with Product and Engineering on product design, development, and customer experience. We are an early-stage startup and we expect every member of our team to roll up their sleeves and do what is needed to deliver an amazing customer experience.

You’d be joining a highly experienced group of founders including our CEO Kevin Nazemi, who served as the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Oscar Health (NYSE: OSCR), and a company financially supported by some of the most respected FinTech Investors.

Responsibilities

  • Envision a user experience specifically tailored to the unique needs of a tech-comfortable and rapidly growing retired population.

  • Execution: Translate requirements and user needs into a delightful, beautiful, usable customer experience.

  • Adaptation: Design an experience that works equally well across devices, bandwidth availability, and tech competency. : Work closely with the founders to implement integrations between consumer experience and infrastructure partners (e.g. core processor, sponsor bank).

  • Empathy: Become a staunch advocate for a deeply underserved community

  • Speed: Our users have very clear core banking needs. Make sure they can get things done effectively, efficiently, and without stress.

  • Prioritization: Critically evaluate information gathered from multiple sources, reconcile conflicts, decompose high-level information into details, abstract up from low-level information to a general understanding, and distinguish user requests from the underlying true needs.

  • Communication: Proactively communicate and collaborate with external and internal customers in your quest to build the best customer journey.

  • Multitasking: Successfully engage in multiple initiatives simultaneously.

  • Obsessing: Obsess over voice of the customer, fight for the customer, walk in their shoes, and breathe their air.

  • Connecting: Serve as the conduit between the customer community (internal and external customers) and the software development team through which requirements flow.

  • Collaborating: Work with developers and subject matter experts to establish the UX vision and analyze tradeoffs between usability and performance needs.

Qualifications

  • The ideal candidate has experience with banking operations.

  • At least 5-7 years of UX experience, ideally designing scalable mobile applications.

  • Excellent verbal, written, presentation and interpersonal communication skills.

  • Comfort with organizing and running user testing sessions.

  • A positive can-do attitude.

  • Organized and results-oriented.

Benefits

  • Equity ownership.

  • Competitive compensation.

  • Medical, vision and dental coverage (US employees).

  • 401k with company match (US employees).

  • Three weeks of annual vacation and 8 observed holidays.
