New York, NY
Gust, the award winning industry-leading platform for funding startups, is seeking a Director of Design.
As the Director of Design, you will lead the design and UX, work closely with the marketing and engineering teams, and help define product strategy.
This role will require a lot of strategic thinking but also be very hands-on.
You will be responsible for directing and mentoring the UX and visual design team, identifying customer needs to define product direction and roadmap, creating process flows, designing wireframes and prototypes, and supporting user research efforts. The ideal candidate will be a UI and UX hybrid – with an understanding of visual design for web-based and mobile applications, holistic product interaction and improved user experiences.
Gust is the global platform for the sourcing and management of early-stage investments. We enable skilled entrepreneurs to collaborate with the smartest investors by virtually supporting all aspects of the investment relationship, from initial pitch to successful exit.
We are a smart group of 25+ employees located in Chelsea, New York City. In our office, you’ll find an open layout of people that are energetic, move quickly, speak 10 languages, and collaborate incessantly. Breakfast on Mondays, lunch on Wednesdays, Company happy hours, and full-day outings are woven into our social fabric.
We have fun, but are serious about providing the best experience for our users. We recently won the 2013 SIIA CODiE Award for Best Collaboration / Social Networking Solution (for the second year in a row). Gust was also awarded the 2012 SWIFT Innotribe Most Innovative Financial Technology Company in North America and in 2011, Breakthrough Angel Product of the Year by EBAN (the European Business Angel Network association). Our goals are clear, our ambitions are high, and our team is stacked.
