Staff Visual and Motion Designer at Earnin | Powderkeg


As one of the first pioneers of earned wage access, our passion at EarnIn is building products that deliver real-time financial flexibility for those with the unique needs of living paycheck to paycheck. Our community members access their earnings as they earn them, with options to spend, save, and grow their money without mandatory fees, interest rates, or credit checks. Since our founding, our app has been downloaded over 13M times and we have provided access to over $15 billion in earnings.

We’re fortunate to have an incredibly experienced leadership team, combined with world-class funding partners like A16Z, Matrix Partners, DST, Ribbit Capital, and a very healthy core business with a tremendous runway. We’re growing fast and are excited to continue bringing world-class talent onboard to help shape the next chapter of our growth journey.

Nothing is more important than the trust our customers have placed in us. EarnIn Design & Research is responsible for fostering that trust—through diligent customer research and innovative product strategy, all in the service of crafting high-quality user experiences.
This is a Staff level individual contributor role. Our Designers and Researchers collaborate in cross-functional teams that work collaboratively, autonomously, and rapidly. We’re tasked with solving the company’s largest challenges as we enjoy rapid growth. For example, we help our customers:

  • Make use of their money in the most efficient, painless way possible.
  • Understand how to make progress with money
  • Feel a sense of freedom to say, “yes,” without worrying about finding themselves in financial hot water.

The US base salary range for this full-time position is $189,000 - $231,000 + equity + benefits. Our salary ranges are determined by role, level, and location. This role will be primarily in the office, of Palo Alto and will require hybrid work from the office each week with 2 days in the office.


  • Own the end-to-end user experience for one or two product verticals, working with Product Managers, Engineers, and Data Scientists to bring a great experience to life.
  • Influence EarnIn’s product vision and design strategy.
  • Collaborate with other designers to ensure a consistent experience & design language across our platform.
  • Execute and contribute to our design system and processes.


  • * You have 7+ years of experience working with product teams to ship consumer products
    • You’re a skilled collaborator: you understand how to plan projects, have excellent etiquette around others’ ideas, and can get the best out of your colleagues.
    • You have immaculate visual design taste and skills, and can apply that taste to extend and enhance EarnIn’s carefully crafted brand identity.
    • This looks like mastery of typography, color, shape and layout.
    • You have industry-leading craft skills. You can play Figma like a Stradivarius, particularly its animation and prototyping tools.
    • Engineers love working with you, because you can help them translate your design work into code at high-fidelity.
    • You’re prolific - you’re much more of a maker than a talker. You use your work to explore many possible solutions to a customer’s need.
    • You use proven principles and tools across the end-to-end design process.
    • Excellent thinking and communication skills (because you’re a designer).
    • You’re skilled at arguing for your point of view, and designs, and giving/receiving feedback.
    • You’re curious: You work from customer needs first.
    • You have a passion for impactful financial technology
