At AngelList Venture, our mission is to increase the rate of innovation in the world by building the tools that create more funders & founders of startups. We want to give more people the opportunity to participate in the venture economy and more startups the resources they need to change the world.

AngelList is the nexus of venture capital and the startup community. We support over $10B in assets under management. We’ve driven capital to over 12,000 startups, almost 200 of which are unicorns. 57% of top-tier U.S. VC deals involve investors on AngelList.

We’ve grown exponentially in the last year and recently raised $100M at a $4.1B valuation to continue building software that founders and investors love.

While our scale is large, our ambitions are even larger – we’re innovating on the financial infrastructure for venture investors and the startups they invest in. Come build with us.

About the Role:

Designers who work at AngelList are passionate about helping startups succeed. This is a rare opportunity to join the company at the nerve center of the startups ecosystem.

The AngelList Venture Design team works at the intersection of product, legal, and brand to shape and choreograph an exceptional customer experience for both Founders and Investors. We have a unique product design culture where designers and engineers define and ship products together without barriers.

It’s a self-starting environment and for those whom it’s a fit, it’s a very rewarding environment.

As a Product Designer you will collaborate with a team of multifaceted designers and engineers, executing on the core product experience across our Stack, Invest, and Lead products, while working to invent new products.
