Product Designer

About the position

We’re looking for an experienced product (UI/UX) designer to come help us create and maintain a world-class digital product. You will be responsible for the user interface design standards at Root and for ensuring the product is optimized for improved usability, usefulness, and exceptional visual design.

In this role you will be working closely with the engineering team to conceptualise, prototype and ship new features and enhancements. You will also be engaging with clients directly to observe and learn how they use the product and how we can improve it.

This full-time role is based at our De Waterkant office in Cape Town but will be fully-remote during COVID-19.

At Root, you’ll be working in a high-performance team with great people, learn a lot, and grow fast.

About the team

Our team is made up of smart, passionate and kind individuals working together to build a great world-class company. We take time to know and support each other on a personal level - over and above the daily team lunches, we do frequent team outings and ad-hoc adventures (when global pandemics permit).

We are prepared and eager to change and evolve. We actively invest in personal improvement and knowledge sharing, and there’s never a shortage of thoughtful feedback from team members. We focus on transparency and explicit communication as a core aspect of our culture. You’ll have direct input into improving our product and operations.
