Who we are:

At TrueLayer, we’re building a global open banking platform that’s changing how money moves and so much more. We make payments and refunds instant, account data accessible and verification seamless — all so innovators in every industry can build better financial experiences for their users.

To date, we’ve raised $270 million from world-renowned investors including Stripe, Tiger Global, Addition and Tencent. We’ve got offices in London, Milan, Dublin and Sydney. And we’re trusted by industry leaders like Revolut, Cazoo and Trading 212… though we’re not stopping here.

Our vision is a financial system that works for everyone. To make that happen, we’re creating original and innovative products that will remove the friction from finance for good. We’re seriously scaling our infrastructure, we’re entering new areas all the time, we’re cornering a whole new category — and we’d like your support to get us there.


At TrueLayer we believe that bridging the gap between engineering and design is the best way to build solid and functional products. So we put designers, developers, and PMs together to build frictionless experiences. From our APIs interface to our developer console — there’s no problem that we can’t tackle at scale with intuitive, user-centric and beautiful design.

We’re looking for an empathetic design manager to lead and scale our product design team, as part of our product development group. You will work closely with the rest of the leadership team in product and engineering to define the strategic vision for design and promote a user-centric approach to the products we are building.

  • Establish goals, define, own and report on key KPIs
  • Manage, mentor and hire designers across the product development organisation
  • Identify career growth opportunities and set clear developments goals within your team
  • Continuously work on improving the design processes and team efficiency
  • Encourage culture of design excellence and collaboration within our design community


What we need from you:

  • Experience managing and scaling teams in a fast growing API/SaaS company
  • Ability to build and improve design processes and framework to keep alignment with the overall design org
  • Good prioritisation skills and ability to make trade-offs
  • Ability to communicate and work effectively with senior management

  • Ability to solve problems of complexity through smart design

  • Previous experience in fintech
  • Management of entire product teams including engineers

  • Competitive salary and meaningful equity in the company 💰

So we want you to know that the things that make you, you — like your age, ability, background and identity — are things that we celebrate and support. All we ask is that you believe in what you do (And know what an API is).
