The Paystack Design team is small (8 people) but very involved in everything at the company. We contribute to the success of the company with good design. Our goal is to maintain a delightful product, high quality brand and pleasant work environment.
We’re a very energetic team with young designers. Everyone’s level-headed and always eager to do better. We also take learning seriously: the company offers a paid Udemy subscription and the team holds regular knowledge sharing sessions. Sometimes we also bond over fun activities like brand experimentation (pictured above) or educational tours ( https://twitter.com/Printivo/status/1166668537655681024?s=20 ).
