Our mission is to bring world-changing teams together.
Today, AngelList Talent is the world’s largest network of startup talent. Over 100,000 startups of all sizes—from Flexport, to Figma, to Facebook—have used AngelList Talent to build their teams. In 2018, over two million candidates—from CTOs to interns—used our tools to apply for jobs, while millions more used them to research their next move.
AngelList Talent operates independently alongside AngelList Venture and Product Hunt. Each company within the AngelList family is focused on addressing a challenge to startup success: building the right team, connecting with the right investors, or launching your next product.
Behind the scenes, AngelList Talent is a tight-knit group of designers, engineers, and PMs. Together, we're building a new generation of tools to help individuals discover startups they believe in and to support those startups through every step of building their teams. We are supported by the best Sales, Operations, and Marketing teams around.
At AngelList Talent, we look for designers from every background, discipline, and geography. Diversity in skills and life experience make our team stronger and give us the tools to understand our diverse user base.
How designers work here
At AngelList Talent we ship fast, but we ship to learn. Designers research every project and scope tightly first around the riskiest assumptions. We build prototypes to test these assumptions. We ship production features as quickly as you can—we won’t know how users will really react until we do. Once we’ve learned what works, we invest time in making the product as strong as it can be.
Head of Design
Head of Design is a key leadership position at AngelList Talent. You will support our existing designers in envisioning and delivering industry-leading work. Brand Designer, Product Design, and Growth Design all report to this role, and we’re looking for someone excited about that breath of responsibility.
People are at the core of our business and also should be important to our leaders. In this role you will nurture and develop the existing design team, while also attracting new talent to grow their ranks. The Design Team is one of our highest-performing teams, but you will help them reach new heights.
You will also work directly with the CEO and product and engineering leaders to shape company strategy. You will be a key company executive and advocate at the highest levels for the best possible user outcomes.
