  • Be flexible and open to participating in design efforts wherever they may be needed on the Swell team.


The ideal candidate:

  • mid to senior Level: 5-10 years of design experience

  • degree in Interaction design, graphic design or equivalent

  • loves sprints, can whip up wireframes, and knows that testing prototypes is where the magic happens

  • enjoys collaborating/pairing with product managers, developers and designers

  • leads with empathy, integrity, and openness to learn – a person who welcomes candid feedback, and can constructively give it as well. We are building an amazing product and culture, so your attitude is just as important as your resume.

An Insider's view of Swell Investing

What are some social events your company does?

Swell's "Purpose Meets Profit" events are all about bringing together local, socially conscious entrepreneurs to talk about how they do business at the intersection of success and intention. Swell was built by people who genuinely care about the impact our dollars have on the world, and it shows.

What are some things you learned at the company?

I was in awe when I first arrived at Swell at the collaborative environment. I had previously worked at start ups that touted their team collaboration but often fell short. At Swell I've learned that collaboration, when done right can lead to a really authentic product, mission, and workforce.
