About the role

We’re seeking a talented Design Manager to join the growing Product Design team at Chime. You’ll oversee our expansion into new financial products and enable our members to access money when they need it, build credit, and grow wealth. You’ll manage designers and roadmaps while contributing to critical cross-functional projects. Your focus will be both making finance simple for our members and making the Chime design team amazing for our employees.

As a Design Manager, you’ll be responsible for developing and growing a product design team. You’ll guide designers towards the quality design design and UX outcomes for our members while teaching them to stay mindful of business needs and constraints. You’ll lead by example as you facilitate cross-functional collaborations and identify opportunities for the design team to operate more strategically, holistically, and effectively. You’ll work closely with the Design Director as you establish a gold standard for design execution and a vision for the future of Chime’s products. Most importantly, you’ll work with each designer on career development and personal growth, ensuring that Chime isn’t just a job, but a place designers can launch their careers.

The base salary offered for this role and level of experience will begin at $165,000 and up to $232,000. Full-time employees are also eligible for a bonus, competitive equity package, and benefits. The actual base salary offered may be higher, depending on your location, skills, qualifications, and experience.


In this role, you can expect to

  • Put the user first in all product / design decisions. Don’t lessen their problems, actually eliminate them.
  • Put your employees first in all other decisions. Coaches are the bottom of the pyramid, supporting their team, not the other way around.
  • Champion high caliber design throughout Chime. You’re a role model to other designers and other parts of the company.
  • Own vision setting, roadmapping, priority setting, and design delivery across multiple product development teams
  • Present work to, collaborate with, and influence product managers, engineers, research, exec team, and other stakeholders
  • Manage and iterate upon our team processes, career development, and people tools internally
  • Wear multiple design hats, helping to work on any project as needed

To thrive in this role, you have

  • A Bachelor’s degree in graphic design, product design, or related design field (or applicable experience)
  • 7+ years of proven history shipping consumer mobile and/or web products
  • 3+ years of experience managing and building design teams
  • The attitude of leadership from behind and a knack for inspiring others to be their best every day
  • The ability to balance business objectives with user needs and team needs. You represent all sides of the business and know how to create the best outcomes for each.
  • A relentless desire to make finance work for our user’s benefit
