Illustrator and animator – London

At TransferWise, we've got a clear mission — money without borders. Built by and for people who live global lives.  In 2017, we got a little bit closer to achieving that mission. We launched the Borderless account.

Today, customers can receive and hold money in more than 40 currencies with the Borderless account. We're now looking for a talented Product Designer to make it easier for people to receive and hold money in the currencies that's right for them.

TransferWise is looking for a Illustrator and animator, based in London

The TransferWise brand design team works with Marketing, Copy, Product, Design System, Creative and Buzz, and Paid Social teams to help deliver end-to-end brand experiences'. We look after the elements that bring joy, build trust and connect with our customers.

All things visual make everything we do recognisably TransferWise for our customers. We’re on the lookout for a talented designer, with a special emphasis on illustration and animation skills.

As part of the brand design and alongside our in-house illustrator you’ll help to implement our illustration system into the TransferWise experience and bring them to life. You'll create illustrations for key experiences in both product and marketing. You’ll work with the wider Design team, to test, learn and validate your ideas along the way.

You will:

  • Create beautiful, impactful design and illustration, from concept to execution
  • Make joyful moments for our customers
  • Help to create bullet-proof guidelines and principles to help other designers build on your work
  • Collaborate with our Illustrator, Product Designers, Marketing Designers, Copywriters and Developers to explore ideas and provide expertise on how to best use illustration in specific cases.
  • Jump in and help the Brand Team with other design work such as our borderless card
  • Work in multiple disciplines including print, digital, and environmental design

You might be a fit for this role if: 

  • You’re world-class illustrator and animator with character animation experience
  • You’re motivated by building memorable customer experiences 
  • You can use aesthetics and emotional design to achieve business goals
  • You think ‘system first’. Meaning you create scalable, reusable building blocks where others just see bespoke illustration.
  • You use illustration and animation to make complex things seem simple and clear
  • You have solid (3+ years) of relevant experience shipping digital illustrations and design

So, if you’re keen to learn, grow, try new things, and aren’t afraid of a bold plan, you’ll fit right in. 

We’d love it if people from under-represented groups applied
