About Fincra

We believe Africa is the new frontier of financial opportunity. Our mission is to build the API infrastructure to connect all of Africa to the rest of the world.

Fincra is a cross-border payment infrastructure for financial institutions and global businesses. We’re a licensed Money Service Business & FX Broker. We provide APIs that enable financial institutions, fintechs and global businesses to make global payments, exchange foreign currency, operate multi-currency bank accounts and mobile money wallets.

We are a Techstars alumni building a team of rockstars, builders, and people who are obsessed about making a difference with the quality of their work. Our people are our greatest assets and competitive advantage and we treat them with this understanding.

 

Role Overview

Our product team needs a Product Designer with a minimum of 2 years of experience to join us in making global payments seamless. We seek a problem solver with a keen eye for visual quality, someone who can grasp complex concepts and tailor solutions to users’ needs. 

As we scale Fincra’s design operations, you will work cross-functionally with our Products and Engineering teams. Your work will be crucial in how our products evolve, from conducting user research, prototyping to shipping interfaces with the best design standards.

We work fully remote, while this pandemic lasts. However, we will be resuming back at our office in Lagos (Lekki) where we work 2 days onsite and 3 days remote a week.

We always and strongly encourage candidates from all backgrounds and identities to apply. With each new hire, we look to diversify, strengthen our team, and be more purposeful about building our culture. We create an environment where you can grow and be happy doing it.
