Senior Product Designer

About us:
Modak is a US-based platform leveraging the power of fintech, gamification, and community to empower teens to reach their full potential.
We are founded with an audacious vision to enable teens and young adults to reach their full potential, regardless of their background. We pursue this mission by offering a gamified fintech and learning ecosystem - with teen cards, financial literacy, and other services. We build for scale and security using the best technologies and enrich the user experience with a thriving community that supports each other. Modak is trusted by over 25,000 teenagers (and growing by the day!).

We are a global company, with teams across the US and LatAm and we do in person retreats every 2-3 months. If you are hungry to learn, humble to work with, and hustle like no one else, we would love to hear from you - especially if you are living in the US, Bogota, or Buenos Aires.
We are one of the most well-funded early stage startups, and we are grateful for the 3+ years of runway we have even in this market. Our investors include GGV Capital ($9.2Billion VC firm), Monashees, Maya Capital, Nazca VC, One VC, and 30+ leading angel investors and entrepreneurs across Silicon Valley and Latin America.

Join us to make history together!
