As an Interaction Designer, you will conquer complex design challenges and develop engaging experiences for multi-generational users impacted by the student debt crisis.

As part of a Series A start-up, you will be challenged to wear multiple hats in a fast-paced, dynamic role that includes critical responsibilities in UI design, UX and interaction design, graphic design and accessibility. We are looking for someone to join our war against student debt and equip our team with solutions that create valuable experiences with our customers, users, and key stakeholders.

As a creative leader, you are thrilled to chase the answers to the most challenging questions in design and you are constantly seeking ways that would make a human experience feel more intuitive, inclusive, accessible, fun, and delightful. You see the job title as just a starting point and you naturally feel empowered to solve problems without being asked, but you also value being a team member that seeks collaboration over siloed decision-making. You are not afraid to lead and are excited by the opportunity to contribute new ideas and spearhead new strategies to help us build and grow our global team and company. You will report to the VP of Product and work with a growing team of full-time and contracted resources across design, UX, engineering, operations, and sales.

Does this sound like you?
You have fierce attention to detail. You embrace ambiguity, thrive in the agile environment of a start-up, and are excited about building systems and processes from the ground up.

You can dive deep into the micro of how products, websites, processes, and assets get designed and built, while also maintaining the ability to zoom out into the macro and provide the vision for how our product design can iterate into an influential powerhouse for innovation, social impact, and market-leading UX.

You are seeking to help build digital experiences that won't settle for any standard less than inspiring love and admiration by people, for people. You are naturally curious, eager to explore uncharted territory, and diligent in balancing competing opportunities and constraints.
You seek growth through constant feedback loops and constructive critique. You naturally challenge yourself and others to achieve increasingly complex challenges and key results over time.

As a member of the FutureFuel family, we are looking for someone who is proud to be a part of a mission-driven organization that exists to CRUSH student debt.
