Who are Service Designers within Polymath?

As Polymath is a company builder, Service Designers are part of the 0 to 1 talent in the Polymath organization. We need top-caliber service designers to work with teams of an early-stage, rapidly growing portfolio company in which they lead the understanding of customer segments, preferences, and service or product design. A Service Designer works at the intersection of design and business, alongside Polymath Partners and venture Founders to build and grow the company. Service Designers are fully integrated within a venture or a Polymath project, leading all user-centric research and understanding and thereby contributing to steering the direction of the company. 

Why build with us?

  • Join one of the most talented teams in Latin America with the right methodology to dramatically increase the likelihood of startup success
  • Build something important that impacts customers' lives and employs 1000’s of people
  • See the direct results of every ounce of sweat (and tears)


What will you get?

  • Real operational experience. You will play critical roles to grow or start ventures and manage strong operational teams.
  • Methodologies to build new ventures. You will gain exposure to Polymath’s model of designing and growing new businesses.
  • Entrepreneurship in emerging markets. You will gain a deep understanding of building companies within more difficult, yet high-potential markets.
  • Working alongside top, diverse talent. You will gain exposure to top global talent from diverse fields: design, business, technology, etc.
  • Exposure to venture finance. We will keep you connected with the strategy behind venture funding.
  • Balancing business with impact.  You will see how we create value for investors, users, and employees.


We are looking for individuals with the following characteristics

  • 4+ years of working experience in high-growth environments

A few of Polymath's successes so far

  • 7 ventures launched since late 2012; 1 more to be launched at the beginning of 2017
  • Over 250 people employed across the Polymath group
