We're also hiring a Lead Visual Designer
We're looking for a Lead Product Designer that is obsessed with crafting world-class software. Someone who is not only excellent at UX, but also deeply understands our mission and the motivations of our users.
Since we're a small 15-person team (6 engineers and 2 designers), you'll wear many hats. You'll work directly with the CEO to lead product across the company. As Wefunder grows, you'll be on a track to become Head of Product.
Our ideal candidate has a head start on grokking our users: they've either founded a company, worked with a founding team, or have invested in a startup. While not a requirement, this will help reduce the learning curve.
We also need someone very good at simplifing complexity. Unfortunately, the law is complicated: often, a web page might have more than a dozen variations for different types of users and companies for legal reasons. You'll need an engineering-like brain to keep track of these details. But you'll also need to be an empath to understand our users.
Our first challenge is a modernization of Wefunder. Most of our web site was jury-rigged together while under tremendous stress. We now have the resources to fix this. Over 2020, we will completely overhaul every single user-facing web page, one by one, with a new design system, fixing our most horrendous UX problems.
Towards the end of the year, we'll start working on new product. The vision of Wefunder has always been community. Right now, we're pretty good at transfering money from Point A to Point B. But what happens after the company is funded? Can we connect founders with more help and mentorship when they need it? Can investors feel more "behind the scenes" and emotionally invested? Can investing in ideas they support be part of their identity, like it is in Silicon Valley? Can we educate the hundreds of thousands of new investors better? Can investors talk to each other and collaborate, and make better investing decisions? These are some of the challenges we'll have.
Email [email protected] with why you'd like to work for us. Brownie points: include a survival skill you'd offer the team in a post-apocalyptic world.
