US-CA-San Francisco | US-NY-New York


First Republic Bank is looking for someone to join our design team and help lead the transformation of our digital products in the private banking space. We operate as a fast-moving team that prides ourselves on innovation, execution, and ownership. This role will be responsible for setting a high standard in visual design and user centered design, and creating highly engaging features across mobile and desktop products.


The Senior Product Designer is highly collaborative and has experience working closely with product teams and engineering teams. This role is for someone who has a passion for their craft and can demonstrate that passion to others, even those outside of the design team. This person is customer-/user-obsessed. They are able to think beyond basic banking apps and imagine what true digital-to-human hand-off looks like. This is unique to our brand and to the type of high standard our customers expect from us.


This role is custom tailored to the person who loves strong visuals in design, loves custom crafting tools for users, likes to own and ship ideas rather than watch them collect dust on a shelf, and values working shoulder to shoulder with thoughtful and collaborative colleagues. 


What you’ll do as a Senior Product Designer:

  • Set a high standard of UI design, always pushing our design patterns
  • Collaborate with product and engineering teams
  • Communicate UI and visual design principles across and outside of the design team
  • Mentor and grow the skills of junior designers
  • Present your work across the team as well as to stakeholders
  • Manage design projects from initiation to production
  • Push product thinking to always be customer/user-centric
  • Evolve and contribute to our design library
  • Be a culture builder for collaboration and creativity
  • Grow personally in your craft and in the shared knowledge of the people around you



At First Republic, we care about our people. Founded in 1985, we offer extraordinary client service in private banking, private business banking and private wealth management. We believe that personal connections are everything and our success is driven by the relationships we form with our colleagues and clients. You’ll always feel empowered and valued here. 


Incredible teams doing exceptional work, every day

The Digital Channels team is responsible for client focused digital experiences that support our Consumer Private Banking, Corporate, and Private Wealth Management businesses. We are seeking a dynamic, organized leader to play a key role in supporting these efforts amidst the rapidly changing digital servicing and sales landscape.


What you will bring to the table:

  • Passion for UI design, visual design, typography, interactive design, animation, illustration
  • Thoughtful, simple, clean solutions for otherwise complicated problems
  • A profound awareness of the value of good spacing in design
  • Ability to navigate difficult situations in your work with successful outcomes
  • Ownership of problems. Ownership comes with responsibility and space to solve a problem. It also comes with recognition and satisfaction when the problem is solved and delivered.
  •  Competence in systems thinking across multiple platforms
  •  Adaptability. If data, research or a different perspective offers a contradicting position to one you have, you’re comfortable with changing your opinion.
  • Prior success building strong relationships across teams. At the core of our digital products is the value of the human experience. Good people and strong relationships will build better products to serve our clients.
  • An inquisitive mind



  • This role requires a portfolio to be considered.
  • Multiple examples of quality work that has gone to production
