Senior Product Designer
We help investors unlock generational wealth by providing access to investments normally reserved for institutions and the ultra wealthy. We evaluate thousands of investments to provide our customers one diversified, and managed portfolio of alternative asset investments (things that are not stocks and bonds). Best of all, we are powered by an intuitive and easy to use software platform that our customers can use anywhere. Learn more at www.equi.com.
Our culture is driven by the values we collectively share and live together:
Tikkun Olam (#TO, 🌎 ): Intent matters; and we’re committed to making our world a better place.
Be a fiduciary (#BF, 🏦 ): We always act in our customers’ best interests.
Renaissance ambition (#RA, 🎨 ): We pursue constant learning and self-development outside of work.
Cheetah Craftsmanship (#ChC, 🐆 ): We sprint, innovate through obstacles, and produce excellent work; then recharge and reflect just as intensely, constantly honing and improving our craft.
Lift each other up (#LEOU, 🙌🏼 ): We act for the greater good of the team, not our own self-interest.
Conscious candor (#CC, 👂🏼 ): We listen and communicate honestly and provide feedback directly while being self-aware and compassionate.
No lone wolves; Equi’s hunt & build systems together (#NLW, 🐺 ): We hunt as a pack, collaborate to avoid information silos, and build systems to make good things easy for the future.
Equi is looking for a seasoned Product Designer to build out and scale our design organization. We’re an asset manager and technology company so a strong interest in finance and/or investing will help you get far. Our platform is going to provide access to a class of investments that many people have never heard of before, so you’ll need to have the ability to simplify the complex.
This is a role with significant growth potential since you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with every department within the company. You’ll also be expected to perform extensive design research to develop a deep understanding of our customers and their needs. We want this company to be a design and product oriented company so you’ll be given a lot of autonomy and ability to influence the direction of our platform
