Senior Visual Communication Designer

Redwood City, CA
Design
Full-time

Our mission is pretty simple: we believe that everyone deserves access to sophisticated financial advice. Over the past five years, Wealthfront has built a technology company focused on re-architecting the finance industry, and along the way we’ve created a new category known as automated investment services (aka ‘robo-advisors’, but truth be told we’re fairly light on robots). What that actually means is we build software that enables us to democratize access to services typically reserved for the ultra-wealthy, and through automation we can deliver those services to people at an incredibly low cost. And it’s working; we have clients across the country who trust us with over $8 billion in assets -- and we’re just getting started!

About the Role

We are looking for an inspiring visual storyteller to help shape how we connect, communicate, and build long-term relationships with our customers. We all know that finance is emotional, it’s complex and overwhelming, and it can render us paralyzed. Through your work, you will inspire a large majority of customers to take action, create awareness about how we can help them, and encourage healthy financial habits.  

This is an amazing opportunity to extend our brand across all customer touch points - website, mobile and web products, emails, advertising, blogs, social media, help-center etc. in compelling new ways. If you are a powerhouse of ideas, care deeply about crafting beautiful user-centered experiences  and love a strong creative collaboration with marketing, content and product, we’d love to hear from you.

Wealthfront is the only robo-advisor to offer both investment management and financial planning exclusively through software. Because of this approach, we've quickly become the automated advisor of choice among young people. Anyone can open a Wealthfront investment account with $500 to access a unique Passive+ investment strategy that includes a combination of a diversified portfolio of ETFs and tax minimization strategies. All clients receive financial planning through the service, Path, at no additional cost. Wealthfront does not charge management fees on the first $10,000 and for amounts above that the annual management fee is 0.25% - a fraction of what financial advisors charge. Wealthfront's strategy is to take high end financial services that are reserved for those who have millions of dollars and deliver them to young consumers through software. The majority of Wealthfront clients are in their 30s and 40s and have less than $1 million to invest. Wealthfront was founded by Andy Rachleff and Dan Carroll, who launched the service in December 2011. Wealthfront has raised over $129 million in funding from Benchmark Capital, DAG Ventures, Dragoneer Investment Group, Greylock Partners, Index Ventures, Ribbit Capital, Social + Capital and Spark Capital, and is based in Redwood City, CA.
