  • Define NW’s native mobile app experience, alongside (and in consideration of) the responsive web experience
  • Be a thought leader and support the Product Design craft
  • Exemplify user-centered design across the NerdWallet native mobile app and RWD experiences, in the context of real human insights
  • Participate and facilitate collaboration across teams through design thinking methodologies and iterative product development 
  • Join a team of committed Nerds and bring NerdWallet’s purpose to life, energizing people to change the way people think about their finances
  • Contribute to the development of the NerdWallet Design System, specifically as it relates to native app styles, patterns & behaviors

  • An enthusiastic collaborator: you know how to build cross-disciplinary relationships in order to achieve exceptional experiences, and find joy in working alongside other designers
  • Perpetually curious: you are passionate about new technologies, industry trends and relevant artifacts
