Senior Product Designer

Remote Position /
Design /
Full Time
At MainStreet, we’re problem solvers. 

Our products aim to do one thing: save startup founders and small business owners time, money, and peace of mind. We started by demystifying complicated tax credits, saving over $100M – and countless hours of tax code research 🥱– for founders in nearly every industry. Then, we introduced MainStreet Procurement, simplifying expense management and contract negotiation for teams without the means to do it themselves, as well as our treasury management product that helps customers earn better yields on their cash reserves.  Since our sort-of viral beginnings in 2019, we’ve raised a $60M Series A (more on that later), launched three product lines (with more in the works), and grew from 3 employees to 160+.

We owe our success to the strength of our team. Before joining MainStreet, we helped build companies like Intuit, PayPal, Google, Apple, Coinbase, Gusto, LinkedIn, Slack, and more. We’re 100% remote, spanning across 30+ states and Canada. We’re fellow founders, engineers, accountants, designers, dog (and cat) lovers, adventurers, coders, and parents. We move fast. We think big. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. And we’d love for you to join us.

The opportunity

MainStreet is looking for a Senior Product Designer to help us design our core product and build the foundation for the design practice (including contributing to our design system). As one of the first hires on the design team, you’ll have a big opportunity to influence and shape our product, our design and research processes, and our team culture. You’ll report directly to our Head of Design.

What you'll do

    • Partner with PMs, Engineers, and other cross functional stakeholders to define and design our core product experience
    • Contribute to our nascent design system
    • Drive research to understand our customers’ needs and pain points, to validate designs, and to use those insights to improve our product experience
    • Mentor other designers on the team

What we're looking for

    • 5–8 years of experience of product design at a tech company (make sure to include your online portfolio in your application)
    • Experience working with cross-functional teams (engineering, product management, marketing, etc)
    • Ability to drive an end-to-end design process with little guidance or supervision
    • Ability to explain your process and design decisions to your cross-functional partners
    • A willingness to learn on the job and take on tasks as needed
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
    • Ability to work independently and communicate over the phone and with video chat software, such as Zoom

You will thrive if

    • You enjoy building things from zero to one
    • You want to bring consumer-level design to the B2B industry
    • You operate under a service mindset — we’re here to serve our customers, not our egos
    • You enjoy turning complex problems into elegant solutions
