Job Description:

Senior Product Designer, Cash and Money Movement Remote - Palo Alto, CA (Open to US-based Remote) / Designers at Wealthfront are empowered to be innovative, creative and strategic because design is critical to realizing our vision and succeeding as a business. We are expected to define problems, new opportunities and solutions that are deeply rooted in human psychology and behavior as well as a sound understanding of our technology and business, all in very tight collaboration with engineers, product managers, researchers and data scientists. We're making big bets, and innovation is encouraged. We embrace failure and care much more about the magnitude of success versus percentage of times we are successful. And unlike many organizations, design is an equal partner to engineering and product and plays an important role in strategic decisions. We're a remote friendly team and open to candidates from both the US and Canada. We're also total nerds, deeply committed foodies, and unable to imagine functioning without Figma.

About the role If you're obsessed with solving human problems and crafting elegance out of complexity, this role is for you. Wealthfront's vision is to make it delightfully easy to build long-term wealth on your own terms, so for starters, you should feel genuinely passionate about this problem space. You'll lead projects that make managing your savings effortless. Think instantly moving money between accounts at different institutions, automatically saving towards the future, and making it possible for couples to manage their finances together. - Working here, you'll build a deep understanding of how people think about their finances and how to craft elegant interactions in situations that are both technically and emotionally complex. Your work will have a large impact on shaping the core experience people have managing their finances through Wealthfront and will be a key part of our strategy for growing the company. You'll work with a high-performing cross-functional team with deep expertise in Product, Engineering, and Marketing. Success in this role requires a healthy balance of excellence in craft as well as product vision. Responsibilities

We built the first automated investment product that allows you to invest in a personalized portfolio of thousands of companies in seconds for a remarkably low fee; we then expanded into banking which made it remarkably easy for people to automate their finances end-to-end and eliminated the hassle of money management, all of which resulted in attracting more than $27 billion of our client's hard earned savings, created the robo-advisor category and transformed the broader industry. And yet, we have a long way to go to achieve our mission to build a financial system that favors people, not institutions. Wealthfront's vision is to make it delightfully easy to build long-term wealth on your own terms. This vision is more relevant than ever because millions more people are getting into the market early and investing their hard earned savings in a handful of stocks. While this is a great way to start, it is inconsistent with building long-term wealth. We want to empower young investors to expand their horizon, and easily explore and execute on a wider range of investing strategies, make informed investment decisions that are consistent with their values and beliefs while also making it effortless to grow and compound their savings exponentially, that's transformational to their lives and their long-term future. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
