Who we are
Albert is a new type of financial service that uses powerful technology to simplify our customers’ personal finances. A startup with the backing of top-tier institutional investors, we have been trusted by over 1 million users to help achieve their financial goals. Our mission is always at the forefront: to improve the financial lives of millions of people. We strive toward this mission with a simple, yet sophisticated product, and an in house team of financial experts – or “geniuses” – who work directly with our customers. If you are a thoughtful, talented individual with an interest in our mission, we invite you to join us on our journey. Successful candidates will have a foundational knowledge of finance and the desire to better the lives of others.
About the role
The visual designer will help design across multiple areas of our brand. The designer will help design engaging product and create rich in-app experiences. The ideal designer is a hands-on, inventive individual with the ability to think from visual, ux, and content perspectives. On an average day, the visual designer might layout app screens, create illustrations for use across the brand, collaborate with writers, engineers and product managers to deliver quality product, create content for social media, and work with marketing to design assets for external communications.

Our design values

  • Simplicity: there is a massive, tangled web of financial products. We’re working tirelessly to make Albert simple and easy to use. In large part, this is done with great design.
  • Clarity: our goal is to create a transparent and straightforward experience for our users. We believe design should always elevate and enhance content, not distract from it.
  • Friendly: understanding personal finances isn’t just about the numbers, building a healthier relationship with money impacts all areas of a persons life. That extra layer of empathy is crucial to our brand.

Things you're good at

  • Detail. You have an expert eye for typography, color and layout. 
  • Information design. You are able to distill complex problems and information into designs that are engaging, easy to understand and simple to follow.
  • User experience. Ability to think holistically, in a user-centric fashion, with a sharp eye for detail and consistency.
  • Flexibility. You are comfortable laying out designs that are mainly typographic and highly informational and are also able to design and illustrate for content that is highly visual.
  • Organization. Work across multiple layers of our organization, including design, product, writing, marketing, engineering, financial services and senior management.
  • Communication. Keep lines of communication open and seek out feedback on a regular basis.
  • Teamwork. At Albert, the underpinning of our culture is to care. We care about our customers’ financial wellness, we care about the health of our business, and we treat each other with kindness and respect.

An Insider's view of Albert

What are some social events your company does?

Our events are proof that Albert puts team-building first. Even with many departments in our busy start-up, Albert finds exciting ways to bring us together. This has included an afternoon ice-cream bar from Bluebird Creamery, a karaoke happy hour and professional mini-massages for Employee Appreciation Day. (I’ve never been so relaxed at work!)

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

A requirement when working with the world's largest financial institutions is world-class practices around your data systems. We take great pains to ensure that our users' personal and financial data stays private. Helping to distill truth from our data while maintaining the integrity of our data policies is a challenge I love working on.
