Our goal is to become the world's leading software provider for automated decision-making in the financial services industry and, to date, our software has been used by our customers to power over 15 million credit decisions.

We have accumulated extensive work experience at leading tech companies, startups, and the enterprise software sphere. Our backers include Y Combinator, Index Ventures, firstminute Capital, and stellar angels such as the founders of Looker, GitHub, Mulesoft, Datadog and UiPath.

User Research: Execute qualitative and quantitative user research processes for a variety of interactions, from internal stakeholder interviews to formal user interviews and informal industry expert conversations.
UX flows: Iterate rapidly with the engineering team to define the experience of engaging with our product, from scoping user's problems and defining user task flows
Prototyping & Testing: Create prototypes using a variety of tools and methods, to conduct usability tests that (in)validate key product hypotheses
UI Design: Help develop Taktile's visual identity, our Design System in Figma, and work closely with the front-end team to ensure it is adhered to.
