Mono helps businesses in Africa access financial accounts for financial data and payments. Businesses of all sizes in Africa use our platform to retrieve account details, transactions and move money, reliably and securely, including Carbon, Renmoney, Inflow Finance, Tangerine Insurance, and many others.

We are recruiting to fill the position below:
Job Title: Senior UI Designer
Location: Lagos
Job Type: Full time
Department: Design

We are looking to hire a Senior UI Designer to lead and present our product's development in a way that is attractive and convenient for users. You will be expected to lead and oversee the company’s entire UI strategy and be responsible for building and implementing a design thinking culture.
At Mono, we seek to build infrastructures that promote reliable access to bank accounts with high quality financial data and collect direct bank payments with ease. Through creating and executing design solutions related to the layout of this information and the user’s experience with our web application, you will deliver an outstanding solution, providing an exceptional and intuitive design.
To perform this role effectively, you will work closely with the Growth, Business and Product teams to ensure that you understand, define and create a visual language that is as an extension of the brand at every stage of our business operations. This role tends to be a more strategic, analytical role, so you’ll need to be extremely comfortable with data to easily assess the impact of all UI designs and usability changes.
If you desire a career that allows you to draw upon observations and improve design standards, be open to the less-than-obvious solutions to problems and are sensitive to how your creations will be integrated and experienced then we would love to partner with you to make this happen. At Mono, we understand how important it is to hire, develop and offer value to members of our team and we can't wait for you to join us!
