About this role
We’re FutureAdvisor. We’re a FinTech company with a small-town vibe but some big-time resources. We’re part of BlackRock, the largest asset manager on the planet, but we feel more like a startup. We’ve got a great new office space in the middle of the SoMa neighborhood in San Francisco. You’d want to grab a beer or a cold brew with the people here. We’re not all financial experts. You don’t have to be either. You just need to care passionately about what we do because it’s important - more than 50% of all Americans won’t have enough to cover basic needs once they retire. Together we can change that.
We build products that help financial advisors and their clients build and realize holistic plans to save for some of life’s most important moments: buying a home, sending your kids to college, retirement. We partner with financial advisors and financial institutions across the nation who use our products with their customers. We believe that exceptional visual design is an essential ingredient to how we enable the power of BlackRock’s Aladdin technology to improve the lives of financial advisors and investors.
We’re redesigning our products from the ground up and we’re growing our design team to help us build experiences that our partners can’t wait for their advisors and clients to use. If you want to work on impactful solutions to a really challenging problem – producing better financial outcomes for families – then keep on reading!
We’re looking for a Principal Visual Designer to join our growing design team. You are someone who is equally adept at hands-on design work and creating a multi-product design language for a world-class brand. You love the challenge of crafting creative, simple elegant visual designs for complex ideas.
Location: New York (Mid-town currently) preferred; San Francisco (SoMa) is an option
