The world's largest asset class, debt, operates with the worst data.

Technology has revolutionized equity markets with electronic trading, quant algos and instantaneous news. However, in debt capital markets, the picture is completely different. It still behaves like it’s in the 1980s; trillions of dollars of trades are placed over the phone, news is slow, and corporate credit information is imperfect and scattered.

Our mission is to change this.

9fin's proprietary technology delivers fast and comprehensive financial, credit, legal & ESG analysis. Our clients are able to make faster, more informed decisions, win more business and most importantly, save time.

Our fast growing list of clients include 9 of the top 10 Investment Banks, leading Asset Managers, Hedge Funds and Law Firms.

The Opportunity

We are looking for a creative and enthusiastic Visual Designer to join our growing team. If you're excited about the prospect of diving deep into growing a single product, maintaining design consistency, and contributing to our brand identity, this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

In this role, you will help to craft captivating marketing materials that resonate with our audience. You’ll use tools like Figma to create designs that will be seen by thousands of people on social media, and will have a big impact on the future of our product.

Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to explore motion graphics and video editing, using tools like After Effects, to create captivating video content.

You should thrive in a fast-paced work environment, adapt easily to shifting priorities, negotiate deadlines, and be able to deliver high-quality designs within the time available.
  • You Collaborate Actively and Openly: Collaboration is key. If you're an active listener, open to feedback, and can iterate quickly to align your designs with stakeholder feedback, you'll like our design process.
  • You are Eager to Make an Impact: We're not just looking for a designer; we're seeking someone who wants their work to make a meaningful impact. You're excited about contributing to growing one brand, enhancing user experiences, and leaving your mark on the finance industry through design.
