We’re seeking a designer who not only appreciates the aesthetics of typography, colors, and branding but also understands the importance of web standards, optimization, and how these designs breathe life into the browser..We re not building a fintech company here.

We re building an adventure. One that requires creative people who aren t afraid to cast aside established ways of doing things to create delightful, inclusive experiences for customers across 170+ countries.

Throughout the history of civilization, there have been a handful of moments that changed the course of how we think about wealth and equality. The discovery of gold, the creation of paper money, mortgages, ATMs.

We re at the next of those moments right now, and there is no more exciting place to invest your creativity than directly at this intersection of technology and adventure.
