About the role

Alinea is an investing app for GenZs. We’re a Y Combinator backed start-up and have raised $2.1M for our seed round from top investors including Goodwater Capital. Alinea is looking for a talented designer to lead the product design and social media for the Alinea iOS app and work directly with the founding team.

About the Role

"Founding Head of Design" is a fuzzy term, and for us it covers a range. You'll be the first and leading designer to lead the company's brand, a crucial and important role.

We are looking for an ambitious, fast-moving, and creative individual who will address customer needs to build the best investing experience for the next gen. This may not be the right role for you if you are uncomfortable with any of the following:

  1. Trying to predict the customer's needs yourself
  2. Feeling challenged on a weekly basis
  3. A role that will push you to learn new skill sets constantly
  4. Taking ownership and control
  5. Being a creative-driven thinker and passionate storyteller

What you’ll be doing

  • Having full ownership of the company’s product designs and social media posts
  • Help guide our overall development strategy through design, prototyping, and market research
  • Work directly with the founders to define the product roadmap and report directly to the Co-CEOs

What we look for

  • Figma, Adobe Suite and other notable design tools fluency
  • Motion design, video editing and illustration skills
  • Creative, open minded and critical thinker
  • Someone who thinks outside the box
  • A user of Alinea
  • Passionate about the future of fintech/investing

Why you should join Alinea?

We’re changing the way the GenZ's invest their money. For all of history, the stock market has been centered around corporate profits and has been designed for a specific demographic. With Alinea, we want the next generation to invest responsibly in ideas, values and companies they believe in for the long-term.

We recently completed the W21 batch, raised our seed, and are quickly growing. We are looking to build out a team of passionate and driven individuals who want to make an impact. Come join us!
