Lead Communication Designer @ Razorpay
Razorpay is one of the leaders among FinTech players in India, and our
customer obsession has played a huge role in paving the way till here. Crisp
visuals with the wow factor have always given a front seat to Razorpay at the
table of design. In terms of brand, we have been able to establish ourselves as
one of the most well-known players in the FinTech space. Going forward, the
vision is to establish the brand of Razorpay with such distinction that it is
easily recognizable at every nook and corner of the country.
At the Razorpay Brand Studio, our team of communication designers help in
creating engaging narratives for our merchants who are in the awareness,
consideration and evaluation stages in a SaaS lifecycle. We are looking for an
experienced, highly passionate and self-driven professional who can join the
Razorpay Brand Studio and help us in our Platforms team.
The Platform team at Razorpay is responsible for all horizontal processes –
right from getting a business to find Razorpay online to onboarding them into a
transacting business and helping them set up the Payments Suite for their
business. This team also looks after a lot of horizontal product areas like
Dashboards, Communication Frameworks, and Design Systems which powers the end
to end experiences of Razorpay.
If you’re someone who is versatile and can switch across mediums while
telling stories through digital design – you’re in the right space. It’s quite
possible that today you might be optimizing the UI of our pricing page and the
next day you might be creating an animated video to make our merchant
onboarding easier — The nature of the work is quite vast and challenging.
You’re someone who believes in prioritizing craftsmanship over just getting it
done, caring deeply about users’ needs over building something generic and
getting the last detail right over hovering on the surface.
