Who You Are:
You are a highly motivated individual looking to have an immediate impact on the systems, processes and technology of markets that are often called the engine of the US economy.

You are eager to play an essential role in design for Polly, and helping us shape the future of mortgage capital markets.

About You:

  • Estimated 7+ years experience working in product design, or equivalent experience.
  • You are looking to work within a small yet strong team of designers who value collaboration, critical thinking, and excellence.
  • Bonus: Experience in mortgage capital markets.

Your approach to UI design:

  • You are an expert in Figma, with specific emphasis on design system creation and component management at scale

  • You have a solid understanding of American English (good grammar, creative and accurate copywriting skills, etc)
  • You can operate independently, with very little guidance

Your approach to UX design:

  • You enjoy designing both complex and simple features
  • You value clean and accurate IA (Information Architecture)
  • You make few assumptions about what qualifies as success
  • You enjoy user research, data-driven design, psychology, and can even enjoy the nerdy mortgage industry
  • You think first think outside of the box and can then scope design suggestions for practicality
  • You do not let a design system limit your creativity. You inform the design system
  • You work to solve the problem long term, rather than find a quick short term solution
