We’re designing the future of recurring payments at GoCardless and we’re looking for incredible Communication Designers to help us do it.

GoCardless is building a new global network for recurring payments. We’re linking together Direct Debit schemes from around the world to create a simple way of collecting payments directly from customers’ bank accounts. Our annual payment volume exceeds £3 billion, and we’re processing up to hundreds of thousands of transactions per day. The company is growing fast and there is an increasing demand to grow a multi-disciplined Design function at GoCardless with Communication Designers and Product Designers working together to deliver consistent experiences.

Our API powers recurring payments for companies like the Financial Times, Thomas Cook and Nutmeg. It also enables partners including Quickbooks, Xero and Teamup to help tens of thousands of small businesses to save countless hours spent chasing customers for payments.

What type of person we're looking for:

  • You start with why - you’re measured, take a holistic view and ask the right questions before beginning your work
  • You love to collaborate - working in cross-functional teams to ensure consistency of the brand personality across different mediums, and with other designers to develop design systems to keep brand integrity as we grow
  • You think conceptually - exploring innovative ways to solve problems, you enjoy creating concepts that tackle a brief from multiple angles
  • You craft beauty - using your knowledge of design theory, colour, composition and typography you design with absolute care and dedication to your craft
  • You make an impact - you’re always looking for ways to do things better and make a tangible impact to business growth

Minimum criteria:

  • Experience with Communication Design practices both structure-oriented (creating and implementing design systems, brand standards, templates, brochures, signage etc…) and surface-oriented (using design theories such as colour and typography to push the boundaries of the brand).
  • Experience in an enablement set-up, helping to schedule, prioritise and complete projects requests from the business.
  • Experience presenting ideas to designers and wider teams.
  • Experience working with Marketing and Sales stakeholders.
  • A portfolio of your work with examples of structure-oriented and surface-oriented communication design

Our team come from a range of backgrounds, and we welcome diversity. If you’re unsure, please apply - we’d love to hear from you.
