Head of product & UX design

Oslo, Norway · Oslo



Beaufort is looking for a Head of Product & UX Design

Each year more than 1500 billion USD is laundered through financial institutions and used to fund terrorist activities, trafficking and organized crime. Money laundering is a serious threat to society and criminals have until recently outsmarted the good guys. We’re here to change that, and we’re looking for a Head of Product & UX to join our team.

Beaufort is developing the world’s best solution to help combat the problem by offering a modern, smart platform for financial companies. We’re already in the market with our beta, covering customer onboarding, real-time transaction monitoring and reporting, all integrated into an efficient, easy-to-use solution that a growing number of users love.

We call what we do providing superpowers for financial crime fighters. To continue our quest, we’re aiming to further strengthen our fantastic team, which consists of the best in financial services and beyond – people who’ve founded and grown challengers like Monner and worked at world-class companies such as Schibsted, Accenture, Bakken & Bæck and Making Waves.

We’re now looking for a talented Head of Product & UX Design to join us.

At Beaufort, we truly believe that understanding our users is the key to success, so we’re looking to hire an experienced UX professional in this role. Your work will involve you being the lead UX designer in our team, and as the devil is in the details, we need someone eager to combine hands-on UX design with product leadership.

As a person, you’re a creative problem solver – a visionary yet pragmatic thinker and team player with a desire to find a purposeful way to use your design skills. As a designer, you should be intrigued by the opportunities offered by data and AI. Beaufort handles enormous amounts of data, therefore, leveraging its potential, making sense of it, and then delivering it to our users in meaningful ways is crucial.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Leading the product design work, from research to implementation
  • Making sure the entire team understands our users and the problems to be solved
  • Developing our work process and user-centred team culture
  • Recruiting and onboarding new designers to the team as Beaufort grows
  • Closely collaborating with Oslo based developers

We expect you to have the following background and personal qualities:

  • A minimum of five years’ experience in UX design and/or product design
  • Be a strong UX designer who’s comfortable with leading processes, conducting user research and developing design, based on findings
  • Be a creative problem solver who’s not afraid of challenging the status quo
  • Be a good team player with experience from tech teams
  • Have strong communication skills and actively participate in product discussions
  • Have the drive to develop as a leader, with a wish to balance leadership with design work

We offer

  • A key role in an ambitious start-up with an important mission
  • A dedicated team where UX design is fully respected
  • An opportunity to take a leading role in developing a kick-ass product
  • A competitive salary and equity/ownership in the company

Apply immediately – we’ll swiftly be interviewing all relevant candidates
