AngelList’s mission is to help startups change the world. We’re building the definitive platform for startups — where they raise money (https://angel.co/venture), build teams (https://angel.co/recruiting), and launch their products (http://producthunt.com/).
The venture team is fundamentally altering how startups raise money by replacing early-stage venture capital with modern technology. We've delivered over $1B to more than 3,000 startups over the past few years. Our infrastructure allows investors to build on top of AngelList instead of a traditional VC. This will result in a more innovative, efficient, & fair market.
We have a unique product design culture where designers and engineers define and ship products together. Teams are small and built on mutual respect, high trust, and low management. At AngelList, designers and engineers take direct ownership of product experiences. It's not a fit for everyone, but when there's a fit, it’s one of the most rewarding places to work.

You will
  • Work within cross-functional (design, engineering, ops, legal) teams to iterate on existing products and invent new ones
  • Craft rational, elegant, and delightful solutions to complex problems in the financial/B2B space
  • Undertake user research, identifying mental models, needs, and pain points to inform feature development
  • Contribute to the design system to ensure cohesion across all our products
  • Take full ownership of the product. You will help scope, drive, and measure the success of multiple priorities against deadlines
  • Inspire the team by bringing new ideas to the table
  • Learn the venture financing business inside-out, from the ground up

You have
  • 5+ years of experience designing digital products and systems
  • Experience with prototyping as a means to communicate design solutions
  • The ability to work within visual design languages and experience contributing to them

  • A strong command of Sketch (for UI design). We also use Abstract for version control and InVision for feedback and prototypes
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • The ability to handle uncertainty and ambiguity well. You can make clear decisions with limited information
  • A growth mindset and comfort in regularly delivering and receiving peer feedback
  • An optimistic and idealistic worldview with a pragmatic work ethic
  • Started something on your own before - a startup, an open-source project, something else
