About the Role
A person’s financial life is intimately connected to their dreams — from the home where they’ll live to the travels they’ll take to the future they picture for themselves. As a pioneer in automated investing and money management, Wealthfront offers tools and services to make more of those dreams possible for a broader range of people than ever before. The Creative Team at Wealthfront is searching for a Designer to help us find innovative, engaging ways to bring our brand promise to life with conceptual flair and impeccable execution.
You’ll be responsible for creating a wide range of awesome things: producing assets to support a tentpole brand campaign and ongoing marketing experiments, dreaming up unexpected (and unexpectedly fun) ways to illustrate complicated financial concepts and delivering the kinds of creative ideas that no one would ever expect from a financial institution.
Our Designer will be a hands-on builder, well-versed in Figma and the Adobe Suite, who nit-picks pixels and never settles until the typography is perfect.
You believe in our mission
You know that money can be both intimidating and empowering, and you feel invested in Wealthfront’s vision of how well-managed finances can reduce worry and enable our clients to live their lives more fully. You are motivated to make a meaningful impact, to improve the financial system, and to do your part to define a brand working to do just that.
You sweat the small stuff
You recognize that the line between ok and exceptional can be very very thin, and you work ceaselessly to stay on the correct side of it. You make considered decisions in your work, can defend your creative choices, and are ready to revise your opinions in the face of compelling arguments because you care — deeply — about making the work the best it can be. You have high expectations for yourself and the people around you.
You expect your work to serve the team
You know that your way isn’t always the right way, and you’re eager to find a way to contribute, even when it might be outside your typical skill set. You understand there’s always more you can learn, and you look forward to opportunities to add to your creative arsenal.
You are resourceful and enterprising
You think like an owner, are solutions-oriented and adapt quickly to the constraints and challenges of a fast-paced, rapidly growing business with a small team.
You create memorable, engaging things that might-or-might-not look like marketing.
You have experience finding the moments that bring a brand to life. You’re happy designing matchbooks, Instagram ads, emails, billboards and everything both in between and beyond. Whether big or small, you look for ways to intersect consumers’ lives to communicate a brand truth in a way that feels relevant, authentic, and memorable, regardless of channel or medium.

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.
