About The Role

Wealthfront is looking for a senior staff content designer to help chart the future vision for our investing product. Wealthfront pioneered automated investing by offering broad access to sophisticated investing strategies at a fraction of the cost of traditional financial advisers. But that was only the beginning of a much broader vision for how our investing product can serve our mission to build a financial system that favors people over institutions. Since then, we’ve continued to expand the ways we help our clients build long-term wealth through saving and investing.

Your role will be to work alongside the cross-functional leadership on the Investing team to develop the strategy, vision, and language for how this new ecosystem of products works together. This is a best-in-class content design leader who is a systems-thinker, exceptional writer, and passionate about solving problems of all sizes and levels of complexity through the unique skill-set of content design.

  • Success in this role will require excellent communication skills, cross functional leadership, strategic thinking, a high bar for craft, and executional excellence. We’re looking for a content design leader who is equally excited to tackle large ambiguous problems as they are to get in the weeds helping us build an excellent product experience.
  • A passion for investing or experience building consumer financial technology products is highly desirable.

Design at Wealthfront

Unlike many companies where design teams are trained to make incremental changes and work through a chain of hierarchy to advocate for bold new ideas, the design team at Wealthfront is expected to be innovative, creative and strategic, because design and content are critical to realizing our vision.

  • We’re empathetic people advocates. We're interested in what our clients need to know, and what they don't. We organize and present content in the most straightforward, useful, and inclusive way. And we’re not just wordsmiths (although we are good at that, too). We partner strategically with our product management and product design counterparts to shape client experiences.

About You

  • 8+ years of content design experience in a consumer software company; experience in building financial technology products is a plus.
  • Willing to get into the details to drive high-quality decision-making. You’re first and foremost an exceptional product thinker.
  • Has a portfolio that demonstrates how a range of content challenges, solutions to which led to clear and streamlined customer experiences for web and mobile
  • Mastery with content standards and best practices for web and mobile interfaces
  • Experience working in consumer tech companies shipping exceptional quality products in a fast paced environment

Mindset that excels at Wealthfront

  • Someone who embraces complexity, loves engaging in intellectually rigorous discussions, critically evaluates trade-off, both from a customer and business perspective
  • Someone who turns ambiguity into clarity and navigates the organization to drive alignment
  • Someone who consistently thinks about the company and team first and has the resilience to work tough situations, steps up and leads the team
  • Someone who goes above and beyond to make others around them successful
  • Someone who is enterprising and also demonstrates high agency. You don’t wait for change but instead move with urgency and come to the table with proposals on how to improve
  • Someone who deeply cares about learning and growing with the company

About Wealthfront

Wealthfront started with the ambition to transform the investment advisory business, with the goal to unlock access to high quality investment advice for millions who were underserved by the traditional institutions. We built the first automated investment product that allows you to invest in a personalized portfolio of thousands of companies in seconds for a remarkably low fee; we then expanded into banking which made it remarkably easy for people to automate their finances end-to-end and eliminated the hassle of money management, all of which resulted in attracting more than $43 billion of our client’s hard earned savings, created the robo-advisor category and transformed the broader industry. And yet, we have a long way to go to achieve our mission to build a financial system that favors people, not institutions.

Wealthfront’s vision is to make it delightfully easy to build long-term wealth on your own terms. This vision is more relevant than ever because millions more people are getting into the market early and investing their hard earned savings in a handful of stocks. While this is a great way to start, it is inconsistent with building long-term wealth. We want to empower young investors to expand their horizon, and easily explore and execute on a wider range of investing strategies, make informed investment decisions that are consistent with their values and beliefs while also making it effortless to grow and compound their savings exponentially, that’s transformational to their lives and their long-term future.
