Keyrock is expanding!
Keyrock was founded in 2017 and has quickly grown from 3 to over 100 people today. As an industry recognized liquidity provider and market maker, Keyrock is a leading European creator of algorithmic trading technologies in the digital asset space. With VC backing including Series B investment from Ripple, a constantly expanding global client base, and revenues growth 13x in 2021, Keyrock is one of Belgium’s fastest-growing fintech companies.
We’re currently active on over 80 exchanges and count numerous marketplaces and asset issuers among our clients, including some of the best-known companies in the digital assets space.
Keyrock's beating heart is its technical team filled with crypto and DeFi natives, software engineers, digital scientists and academics, who themselves are supported by university professors, industry-leading experts and a strong management team. Over the years Keyrock has become a company that is both idealistic and practical.
We are looking for:
User Experience (UX) or Product Interaction Designer (IxD) at Keyrock who will be concerned with discovering and comprehending the value & impact of product features, changes, and updates, and designing high-value, low-effort, appropriate, interaction (not always, a UI), for internal users and external clients, to communicate immediate and historical trading information.
They collaborate with Product Managers (PMs) and Web/UI developers across the business towards interaction design of identified, prioritized, features and changes of an internal product platform currently in production, and of new products in development. They maintain a holistic mindset with regards to touch points and impact of product features & changes on all users, including those that may never directly see a UI. With this in mind, the UX/IxD maintains a dialogue with Commercial teams about the touch points for external clients, with Keyrock.
UX/Product Designers have the ability to prototype and demo interaction technology, and regularly spend time user testing proposed and existing ideas, including those already in production, to develop a deep understanding of users’ technology interaction needs.
