Sr. Product Designer - Mobile App

Remote /
Advertising & Marketing /
Full-time
StartEngine is the $221M FinTech powerhouse driving the future of fundraising and alternative investing. We have big plans to change how people invest in early stage companies (and other alternative assets), as well as how companies raise capital to grow their business. We’ve helped over 350+ companies raise $230M+ and we’re growing faster than ever.
 
We’re looking for an UX and mobile app design individual that sees where design is going and is eager about bringing us there. We believe our design should be a competitive advantage, and we want to work with someone who not only agrees with this sentiment but is inspired by it. You’re right for this role if you think StartEngine has a lot to improve on our design, and you’re excited to help us build the future. Finance is changing, and we want your expertise to make StartEngine the platform featured in design blogs across the country.
 
Being a self-starter is a must have. This is a small team and you will shoulder a lot of the work. You’ll also have the autonomy to turn various ideas into well designed products. We’re working on apps, marketplaces, and everything in between, and we need you to be willing to voice your thoughts and help guide us in the right direction.
 
Where does this position go? This is the first full time role of our design team. You’ll create the vision for the future of this platform, and as we grow, this team will grow with you to help you implement this vision. It’ll always be a work in progress, and that should inspire you.
 
Why merely back a company when you could own a piece of it?
