Join a phenomenal team on a journey to radically change our economy by bringing a new market to life: Insurance as an asset class.

Our substantive goal is to craft economic change. With $5 trillion of insurance capital worldwide, we believe there should be a way to invest in insurance risk. That is the reason why we are building technologies that will help transact billions of dollars of this new asset class — and we think that achieving this is a problem rooted not just in finance, but in creativity of code and design.

At Ledger, you will get to:

Work closely with the team to help develop and expand our design systems
Craft novel moments of storytelling and delight for Ledger
Collaborate closely with engineers to deliver a great experience for our users
Work with the whole Ledger team to develop content standards
Help the team influence strategic decisions across all the corners of our web presence
Partner with product marketing teams to define information architecture and tell the right stories
Often work on very broadly defined, loose concepts, and sometimes on narrowly defined, tactical deliverables
You will be effective if you have:

A passion for the web as a storytelling medium, demonstrable through a portfolio of design systems, engaging microsites, Sketch libraries, WebGL experiments, CSS art, or anything else—you tell us
5+ years of relevant web design experience—ideally at a tech-forward, product-driven company
Expert understanding of the formal elements of design, not just limited to the web and including typography, layout, balance, and proportion
Are passionate about the technical possibilities offered by the web as your medium
Can reduce complex problems down into pithy stories, delivered through interaction or animation
Have experience designing for marketing websites, or financial-focus online experiences
Keep pushing your work until every detail is covered
Are skilled in explaining your work, process, and decisions to cross-functional stakeholders and crave feedback to help you produce your best work
Are an expert in either UI, UX, or visual design
Think in systems and are able to extrapolate and extend shared patterns and behaviors
Have experience applying those systems to CMS-driven websites—and moreover, know how to balance maintainability with adaptability
Love working with other designers to help them learn and grow—and have them help you learn and grow
Have experience working on, or even leading, a remote design team
