Design is a business differentiator at Dave. It is our job to deeply understand our members’ needs and experience so that we can deliver unique, approachable and meaningful solutions to their already stressful lives.
Our team values shipping early and often while also holding a high bar for shipping great products by pushing our engineering and product counterparts to perfect the product experience. We do this through the practice of UX design, the development of design systems and tooling, product writing, and design research. We go to extraordinary lengths to produce world-class work, and you will get to both deploy your hard-earned experience and build your skills in an organization where your area of work is highly valued.
Who you are
You can empathize with people whose experience, daily life, and needs may be very different than your own. You thrive in an environment with short feedback loops.
You are a systems thinker. Even though you may work on a specific feature set or within a squad’s focus, you seek to understand the entire customer journey.
You take a comprehensive approach to product design and customer empathy, you think in terms of design systems and not individual screens or components.
You are inquisitive by nature. Your first instinct is to ask questions instead of rushing to an answer. You aim to minimize ambiguity by identifying constraints and crystalizing the problem you are trying to solve. With this, you distill complicated problems into simple and approachable solutions.
You give and receive feedback well, like collaborating with others early and often, and want to push both yourself and the design team to new heights.
You have a user and data-focused design mentality. You are constantly looking to hone your team’s instincts through user feedback and data insight.
You understand the role and importance of qualitative and quantitative methodologies.
You obsess over details and work collaboratively with your engineering counterparts to ensure that the deliverables in our users hands are exactly what you’d expect.

6+ years relevant product design experience in a product or design-focused tech company.
