About the role
Wealthfront is looking for a senior or staff product designer to lead design for our Money Movement projects. In this role, you will focus on making money movement fast, transparent, and seamless to deliver on a core part of Wealthfront’s overall vision. While you would think that accessing and using your money would be simple, it’s anything but—as anyone who has tried to buy a home, move money between accounts at different institutions, or even just settle up with someone after a large purchase knows. Wealthfront has a unique opportunity to deliver on this as we leverage new technologies and deep expertise building complex financial products to give people an elegant integrated experience across a broad range of products and services. If you love the puzzle of tackling complex problems and crafting elegant experiences that have a direct impact on people’s lives, this role is for you.
In this role, you’ll collaborate closely with the cross-functional leaders on your team to define the direction for your work, and you’ll build on quantitative and qualitative research to craft delightful experiences that meet our customer and business goals. Success in this role will require strong communication skills, critical thinking, a high bar for craft, and executional excellence.
Design at Wealthfront
High quality, consumer-grade design is a key differentiator for Wealthfront’s business. Good design is what enables us to deliver powerful financial services that our clients find trustworthy, easy to use, and delightful. Designers at Wealthfront are innovative, creative and strategic. We collaborate with PMs, engineers, user researchers, and data scientists to define problems, find new opportunities, and identify solutions to problems that haven’t been solved before. Our work is deeply rooted in human psychology and behavior. It is grounded in a sound understanding of our technology and business. We have big ambitions and leverage a learning-based, iterative mindset to achieve success. Design is an equal partner to engineering and product—from strategy to execution.
We’re a remote friendly team and open to candidates based anywhere in the US.


  • 4+ years of product design experience in a consumer software company.
  • You have a portfolio of high-quality work that shows your experience designing elegant and visually engaging solutions to complex problems that directly solve user needs.
  • You take a structured, intentional approach to your work, leveraging frameworks and principles to articulate your design decisions.
  • You have experience collaborating with product managers, researchers, and content designers in a fast-paced, constantly evolving environment.
  • You can demonstrate strong organizational skills with the ability to communicate and present ideas clearly.
  • You’re a reliable self-starter who can lead multiple projects with minimal oversight.
  • You love designing for the entire product process from strategy to pixel—and can demonstrate a range of skills from high-level flows to detailed interactions.
  • You’re an exceptional product thinker who takes a deep interest in understanding business and customer needs.
  • Deep curiosity and interest in fintech.

  • Someone who embraces complexity, loves engaging in intellectually rigorous discussions, critically evaluates trade-offs both from a customer and business perspective.

  • Someone who puts the team first and has the resilience to work tough situations.
  • Someone who goes above and beyond to make others around them successful.

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 one of the first automated investment products that allows you to invest in a personalized portfolio of thousands of companies in seconds for a remarkably low fee. We then expanded. We now work with partner banks to offer exceptional banking features through a Wealthfront Brokerage Cash Account, which makes 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 $50 billion of our client’s hard earned money, pioneering the robo-advisor category and transforming 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 in a way that’s transformational to their lives and their long-term future.
