Blackwing is looking for a Founding Designer to join an amazing team on the quest to transform the future of finance. Our ideal candidate will get full ownership and autonomy over the entire design stack — from helping shape the brand to designing our product’s interaction model and user experience.

What is Blackwing?

Blackwing was founded on a simple idea: everyone should have the ability to access financial tools, regardless of where they are born and regardless of how experienced they are. With customers at the heart of every decision we make, Blackwing aims to build financial tooling that is safe, transparent, and intuitive for all.

We’re starting with a hybrid exchange (HEX) focused on the South East Asian market. Our goal is to provide the transparency of a DEX without compromising the performance of a CEX, all while offering a UI that’s so intuitive our customers’ grandparents can use it.
