The Product Designers we really want to hire deliver real value to real users. In other words, they design stuff that gets built.
What you'll be doing
You will spend most of your time trying to simplify very complex products and ideas. Your designs will be experienced by millions and solve real-life problems. You will be designing end-to-end journey from ideations, visual design, prototype and help developer built what you've designed. You will co-design with the stakeholder, present your idea and help other junior designers to grow. We say that, if you can work in a bank, you can work anywhere. Don't worry, we are a nice bunch of people. Around here, we go out of our way to help one another ♥
Here is what your week might look like
- You will work closely with Team Lead to design and grow small team of designers working various projects under digital channels across different platform and markets. DIGITAL team taking care of several digital channels that consist of digibank, internet banking, public website, help & support, intelligent banking and few other projects.
- You'll spend time with our wonderful research team. Together you'll try to understand the business goals of your project and, more often than not, meet the stakeholders to redefine the problem statement.
- We want to hire people who have opinions, believe in their ideas and are willing to fight for them. But we also want people who can recognise when a better argument or solution is put before them. All of us participate in user testing, and so will you.
- Like we said, producing good work is not good enough if it doesn't get built. We love you, Dribbble/Behance. It's not you, it's us. You will meet stakeholders from different departments and articulate your ideas so clearly that you'll become an honorary Toastmaster.
- To prepare for those meetings you'll need to check the latest relevant data.
- Before you know it, it will be Friday and time for team dinner, drinks or Creative Day
Here are the experience and skills we do love you to have
- You have 5-8+ years of experience in UI / UX Design. You are experienced in designing product across different platforms and care on creating holistic experience. You think in ecosystems and not just in products or features.
- You are thoughtful in your design. You can take broad and ambiguous problems and turn into delightful solution. You will spend time to understand define the problem before jumping into figma to start designing.
- You are a team player and great at collaborating. You are comfortable to brainstorm and work with other designer(s).
- You are a master of your craft. You pay attention to details and know when to zoom in and zoom out.
- You have the ability to prioritise (you don't focus on illustrations if the UX looks like a love child between Frankenstein and Krusty the Clown).
- You have confidence in your ideas and able to bring stakeholders and convince your idea clearly.
- You follow through-when built, your designs actually look and work like they should. You monitor products after launch and are ready to suggest improvements.
- You have enough curiosity to stay savvy about industry and UX trends.
- You have worked in the fintech industry, banking or similar sector
- You actively contribute to the UX community.
- You're kind of a behavioural science geek.
- You have personal pet projects you work on for fun in your free time.
Your team and career
- You lead by example. You won't be expected to trade people management for your craft.
- You will mentor and grow designer(s). We are small nimble team; your mentorship & leadership will have a big impact to the team.
- Our team working closely together to enhance overall digital channels and making big impacts for our users and our design team.

About the design team
Hi, we are the DBS user experience design team
We create digital products that deserve to be built because they solve real problems in an impactful way with empathy.
We go beyond numbers
Every dollar means something. No one actually wants money. We want what it can give us. So we acknowledge that money is not really about money. We inject emotion into our products to go from transactional to magical.
We have one profound idea
Because ambiguity is the enemy of good user experience. What is our unique value proposition? Would adding another feature dilute the idea or make it stronger?
