🌍 ABOUT LIVEFLOW
We're building LiveFlow to help companies manage their finances with confidence and ease.
Every company has to control its budget and its cash, but too many startups drown before they ever get to see regular and reliable numbers. The lucky ones invest a ton of time and tedious effort to pull their disparate data together every month. For most, the solution is a mix of fragile spreadsheets and flakey scripts. We want to fix that.
Don't get us wrong; spreadsheets are an amazing tool – and scripts can be pretty great too! Spreadsheets are so useful in fact that it's estimated that as many as one billion people use them every month¹. However... Their flexibility and versatility come at the expense of simplicity and maintainability.
We can do better by allowing businesses to easily integrate their own financial data sources. We can do better by automatically updating reports and dashboards, as soon as new data becomes available. We can do better by intelligently detecting errors, anomalies, and even opportunities.
We believe that we can do even better than that.
LiveFlow was founded in 2021 by former Revolut employees, Lasse Kalkar (Former Head of Growth, Nordics, Revolut) and Anita Koimur (Former Global Business Lead, Revolut). LiveFlow is backed by Y Combinator and Seedcamp, and was recently featured as the top product on Product Hunt.

🚀 WHY JOIN US?
You'll help shape your own role here as a function of your talent, your passion, and your ambition. We want you to work smart, bring your own perspective, and ask deep questions about what we do and how we do it. You'll play a vital role in how we foster an inspiring culture, and in how we scale the organization in the coming years.
You love solving problems, right? That's why you're here. Well, we've got excited customers, eagerly awaiting your ideas and implementations. We've got tons of interesting challenges ahead – and we definitely don't have all the answers yet, but we're striving to ask better questions every day.
Do you relish in the delight of customers, and in the opportunity to develop an amazing product you'll be proud of, and one they'll be happy to pay for? Do you have a keen eye for detail and design, but enjoy trading off perfection in pursuit of progress? Do you thrive in an environment of quick and collaborative iteration? If you're answering yes to those questions, we'd love to hear from you.
🚀 JOB DESCRIPTION
Whom we are looking for:
A generalist designer, who can wear multiple hats: This means talking to customers, sketching UXs that later look visually appealing, conducting usability testing, and effectively connecting business goals with product design.
Someone keen to roll up their sleeves and not just to help us design, but to do everything it takes to build our company.
⌨️ SOME OF THE CHALLENGES YOU'LL HELP US MASTER INCLUDE:
Deeply understand our customers: You will be immersed in the culture of customer-centricity and will spend lots of time talking, meeting, and learning about our customers. We mean talking to them often (not just occasionally every 6 months) and getting to know them as people, not just as customers.
Develop our Design System: You will create our Design System from scratch.
UX: You will design the easiest and most intuitive user experience to help our customers securely bring real-time financial data from multiple sources into their LiveFlow spreadsheet (aka LiveSheet).
Experiments: You will consistently develop new ideas and hypotheses and then run experiments to test them.
Lead Design: You will lead our design efforts. We hire you because of your knowledge and expertise, so we look for leadership on how we should set up our Design processes, define which designers to hire, build the Design culture, and much more.
💡 WHAT MAKES THIS ROLE UNIQUE?
- You will be the first Product Designer in the team, so you will play a vital role in how we think about our design decisions and product architecture.
- You will join before we have publicly launched the product and found product-market fit, so you will run an iterative product design process until we get there.
- You will work directly with our founding team and not only influence design decisions, but also play a vital role in how we build the company and the organization.
- You will be part of the company when things are still undefined, not all processes are set up and we have the ability to move extremely fast.
✅ PERKS & BENEFITS:
- We are backed by top-tier VCs (Y Combinator and Seedcamp) which gives us a great network to collaborate with and learn from + you can get direct access to world-class engineering mentors.
Unlimited budget to spend on meeting with our customers - if you want to have lunch or dinner with them, you are free to do so.
- Choose where you would like to work: If you're remote and want an office 3 minutes walk from you, go get it.
Equity to make you feel like an owner.
- All the latest tech equipment you need.
- Health, vision, and dental care are included in your personal insurance.
Monthly budget to spend on books and conferences to ensure you are always up-to-date with the latest developments in your field.
- Office in the heart of London Soho with great coffee, tea, and snacks
- Missing something? Just let us know what it is and we can talk about it.
💼 THE INTERVIEW PROCESS:
1. Initial 30-minute call
2. Design Review
3. FirstMind Talent Discovery Test - You will get a questionnaire so we can learn more about your biggest talents (takes max. 30 minutes and you do it by yourself, no preparation required)
4. 60-minute interview to go through your career history and get to know you better
5. Final Interview
