RBC Ventures

Product Designer - RBC Ventures

Job description

RBC Ventures is a new kind of business - one that marries the strength of one of the world’s most trusted and successful financial institutions with a mission to reimagine the role we play in people’s lives - to move RBC ‘beyond banking’. We’re building a world-class organization focused on designing exceptional experiences, exploring new business models and creating exponential value. In 2020, we were named by Fast Company as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Innovators and we’re looking for team members with the curiosity to explore, the capabilities to build and capacity to help us deliver our mission.

About Mydoh
Started in 2019, Mydoh is committed to helping Canadian parents raise money-smart kids. As part of the RBC Ventures portfolio, Mydoh began with the shared belief that money management isn’t something you are taught, as much as something you learn through experience—and that experience should start early. Kids learn money basics through Mydoh Play, learn to earn their money through Tasks, and can learn to spend what they earn wisely using their Mydoh Smart Card. Parents can see their kids’ spending activity and be as involved as they want to be. Check us out at https://www.mydoh.ca/

What is the opportunity?

The ideal candidate will actively contribute to User Research (foundational, generative, and evaluative), interaction models and user flows, prototyping, and visual interface design at a systems and micro level. We’re especially looking for someone who can instinctively weave iconography, typography, colour, space, texture, and sound together to simplify and improve how parents and children experience Mydoh across channels.

What do you need to succeed?
