Rootopia is a growing edu-fintech startup on a mission to invest in Vietnam's next generation. As a peer-to-peer platform, Rootopia helps any individual to go to any school through individual sponsors. To achieve our great mission, we believe that nothing great is made alone — So come join us!
Rootopia is seeking a Product Designer, especially strong at Visual & Interaction Design to join our growing Design Team. As a Product Designer (and strong at Visual), while your day-to-day job is to deliver products and solve users’ & business’ problems, you will also have permission to freely collaborate with Brand Designers to shape how Brand expresses across digital channels and platforms (brand language projects like iconography) or doing digital creative campaign (projects like creative landing pages). Your strength at visual would be an asset since it elevates the Brand’s craftsmanship on Digital spectrum.
Here at Rootopia, we value those who can be autonomous in their work, enjoy collaboration and have a learn-it-all mindset. Since the Design team is still forming, you have an opportunity to shape and influence the team’s culture. Hence, you are ready for leadership.
What you’ll do:
Collaborate with other Product Designers and Product Analysts to deliver product design timely in an end-to-end design process to solve business, user problems
Document design deliverables to stay aligned with stakeholders while help production goes smoothly
Work closely with Brand Designers to take initiatives of all things related to Visual and Interaction Design to make the brand looks and feels bold and engaging on digital interaction media in general
Work closely with Brand Designers and other Product Designers to take initiatives and set early foundations of Design System
Be obsessive, have high standards for art and design in general, not just Visual & Interaction Design
Stay in touch with current and the future trends of Interaction & Visual design.

Help other Product Designers together improving the Visual, Interaction and Prototyping skills
Instruct, delegate tasks and mentoring to junior designers and interns.
