An exciting new startup in Boston is looking to add an expert web designer to join our team. The right individual will have experience designing user interfaces for web applications and will be as passionate as we are about building amazing products with clean design and excellent usability.
We’re looking for a designer that works well on small teams and likes to wear a lot of hats. We strongly believe that our success lies in our ability to remain agile and move quickly, so we look for folks that can work up and down the full stack of what it means to be a designer. The right person for this role should be as comfortable leading a whiteboard session as they are sketching out concepts on paper, developing designs in Photoshop or coding features in HTML and CSS. In this role, we’ll rely on you to lead the design of our product end-to-end, from the conceptualization through actual implementation of the front-end code.
The qualities of the person that we envision for this role include someone who is:
Self motivated and passionate about winning
A strong communicator with a desire to work on a small team
A creative thinker that will bring fresh perspective to the table
Quite experienced in designing and building web applications
Extremely proficient with the Adobe Create Suite
An expert writing HTML and CSS
Comfortable getting their hands dirty and writing front-end code
Fun-loving, easy-going and friendly
Experienced with a BFA/MFA or equivalent with a focus in web design, or other relevant field
If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you to tell you more about our business. Here’s our quick elevator pitch in the meantime:
We're focused on introducing a truly disruptive business model to the hedge fund industry
This is an industry that shares information extremely inefficiently and we have product with over a 1,400 users from hundreds of investment firms that will radically change how the industry works
Our team has deep industry experience in the space, we've spent countless hours interviewing customers, getting feedback and improving the product with them
We have received significant angel funding from a variety of different private investors in the hedge fund space from some of the biggest firms in the industry, many of which are our customers
We are not a typical consumer internet startup, we have a clear business model that we believe has tremendous upside in a very lucrative industry
