Fueled by a fundamental belief that having access to financial services creates opportunity, PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL) is committed to democratizing financial services and empowering people and businesses to join and thrive in the global economy. Our open digital payments platform gives PayPal’s 244 million active account holders the confidence to connect and transact in new and powerful ways, whether they are online, on a mobile device, in an app, or in person. Through a combination of technological innovation and strategic partnerships, PayPal creates better ways to manage and move money, and offers choice and flexibility when sending payments, paying or getting paid. Available in more than 200 markets around the world, the PayPal platform, including Braintree, Venmo and Xoom enables consumers and merchants to receive money in more than 100 currencies, withdraw funds in 56 currencies and hold balances in their PayPal accounts in 25 currencies.

As a leader in financial technology, we at PayPal believe in providing simple, affordable, secure and reliable financial services and digital payments that enable the hopes, dreams and ambitions of millions of people around the world. We believe that now is the time to re-imagine money, to democratize financial services, so that managing and moving money is a right for all citizens, not just the affluent. And we want great designers to join us in this quest.

As a Lead UX Designer you’re an emerging leader, managing teams in the creation of innovative products for our business and consumers.  You’re a master of the UX craft with experience delivering innovative solutions for all platforms and channels.  You draw on your complete knowledge of the UX lifecycle (discovery, user research, iterative design and testing) to lead a team to conceptualize, define, and create innovative and cohesive solutions that marry customer needs and business goals in scalable, strategic ways.

  • Oversee and facilitate design discussions with teams and stakeholders, leading the consolidation of concepts and driving convergent innovation.
  • Ensure the accountability of the team, leading by example in the creation of high fidelity work products (schematics, flows, interaction sequences, etc.) and providing feedback to iterate and evolve the work of junior contributors.
  • Provide mentorship and guidance to peers and junior contributors, leading by example and helping to raise the bar for the entire team
  • Facilitate the presentation of design decisions to peers, partners, and stakeholders, helping the team to articulate and rationalize capabilities against user insights and business goals.
  • Lead the planning and estimation of design activities for a design team, helping facilitate broader workstream coordination and expectation setting with senior leaders and partners.
  • Provide a senior voice to the UX discipline and community, proactively identifying challenges and solutions, proposing ways to evolve approaches and tools, and enabling a fertile creative environment
  • Provide thought leadership around industry and UX trends, fostering broader community awareness, and facilitating their incorporation into the immediate team and lifecycle.

Job Requirements:

  • 8+ years experience working as a user experience practitioner within a dynamic UX group (preferably agency or consultancy)
  • Proven ability to deliver innovative experiences for Mobile, Tablet, and Desktop form factors, with a working knowledge of distinct design constraints and nuances.
  • Experience defining and delivering multi-faceted, service driven experiences across one or many products and channels
  • Experience leading the planning and execution of user research, including guiding the identification of key user needs and establishing capability priorities.
  • Experience leading the creation and use of archetypes, profiles, personas, scenarios, or other user centered design artifacts.

  • Full understanding of adaptive and responsive methodologies and constraints
  • Proven ability to work with development teams, negotiating experience priorities and technology constraints to maximize experience value.  
  • Experience leading a UX or cross-disciplinary team on a product or solution effort.
