About Paxos

Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Today’s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky - supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we’re rebuilding it.

As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Bank of America, and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower today’s financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.

We are hiring a Lead User Experience Designer to drive user research and UX design for the Paxos product portfolio. This role will play a pivotal part in defining the user experience for our highest priority products and building out our UX team processes. This is a great role for UX leaders that are excited about designing B2B products from the ground up and building out and rapidly iterating on UX team processes.

As a Lead User Experience Designer, you’ll get to:

  • Partner with Product to deeply understand product goals and user needs and transfer them into customer journeys, process maps, high-fidelity wireframes and interactive prototypes, shipping high-quality work in a timely fashion.
  • Interview customers in close collaboration with product managers to understand user needs and use cases and develop a hypothesis on how we can best create value for our users.
  • Define, drive and evangelize the research and design process at Paxos while working seamlessly with cross-functional stakeholders.
  • Strengthen our user-centric product culture by defining our product’s user personas and socializing them across the company.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams (including Product, Engineering, UX, Operations and Compliance) in iterative product development cycles, ensuring cohesive teamwork for successful product design and delivery.
  • Immerse yourself in blockchain technology, cryptocurrency for enterprises and investors, our regulation-first approach, and more!

Your experience should include:

  • Experience driving and applying user-centered design processes across new and existing products and throughout the full software development lifecycle.
  • Proficiency in defining user research / customer interview strategies and facilitating workshops and meetings to collect user feedback.
  • Strong analytical abilities to understand context, uncover root causes, and identify business constraints to iterate on solutions that delight users.
  • Demonstrated ability to work across a wide range of stakeholders (Product, Engineering, Growth, Operations) to collaboratively solve problems.
  • Demonstrated ability to help stakeholders understand the importance of design thinking to building world-class B2B products.
  • Are proficient with industry design tools and systems including Figma, Sketch, etc.
