For our employees, our promise is that Super.com is more than just a job; it’s an opportunity to unlock one’s potential, where learning is celebrated and impact is realized.

About this team
As we build a world class "super app," our customers hold high expectations for our company. Super’s design team faces the exhilarating task of harmonizing the data from user research, analytics and the strategic opportunities from the product management team into a world-class design. We collaborate across verticals, improving how our customers save on travel to designing experiences to help them save with cashback and credit-building. Our designers enable immediate experiments while also pushing the vision of what Super will be, and our UXR team derives key insights from customer research and creates access for anyone to talk directly to our customers. If you are looking for a fast paced team focused on solving really big challenges with a passion for the customer, data-driven decisions, and magic, then this is the place for you.
