Venmo was founded on the principles of breaking down the intimidating barriers around financial transactions to make them intuitive, friendly, and even fun. And it worked: people love sending money with Venmo, and we’re growing by leaps and bounds!
But we’re only just getting started. We want to take that magic of sending money with Venmo and cascade it into every place where people use money. That means connecting people to their money in the most intuitive and fun way possible, then connecting people with each other. Users already love Venmo, but we know there are lots of things we haven’t thought of to make the experience of using Venmo even more delightful and valuable. All that’s going to take a lot of figuring out. Let’s figure it out together!
Design at Venmo
We love making things, so our days are spent with our heads together, pondering the right things to make and how they should work. We huddle with engineers and product managers, working closely together on projects from start to finish, and turn ideas into beautiful, simple, and lovable products that work well. We have white-boarding jam sessions, prototype thoughtful stories, and create pixel-perfect designs that bring it all together. We design separately and together, teach and learn from one another, and push each other to be at our creative and analytical bests. We know we're never completely done. We ship.
About this Role
At Venmo, some product designers are responsible for specific dimensions of the Venmo experience, like commerce or peer-to-peer payments. Other designers are focused on specific platforms, such as iOS and Android, and ensure that the experiences are not only awesome, but consistent with established patterns and styles. This role is focused on a platform, but it’s not iOS or Android… it’s the Web! You will “own” the design of the Venmo experience on the Web, and will collaborate with engineers and product managers to re-imagine what Venmo can and should be for browsers. While your focus will be the web, that doesn’t mean you won’t also be thinking about mobile experiences, too. Our mobile apps also have web views that will require your keen eye, your sensitivity to the latest responsive design strategies, and a solid understanding of patterns that comfortably coexist with iOS and Material design. This is an incredible opportunity for a special designer that has deep roots in web, product, and mobile design.
