Product Designer Ii


Product Designer II 

Full-time •  Excellent Benefits • Work from Anywhere in the US (except CO, AL, or LA)

FreeWill is an award-winning, social-good startup that has partnered with 1350+ nonprofits who support our mission while raising more than $8.7B in bequests to charities since we were founded in 2017. We’ve been featured in the New York Times, Forbes, Oprah’s magazine, and our co-CEOs have even been named to Town & Country’s “Top 50 Philanthropists” list.

All of this is because we’ve figured out how to make some powerful (but complicated!) ways to donate much easier and more accessible. Our products make things easier for the donors who want to change the world and for nonprofits doing heroic work around the planet.

In the last 6 years, we’ve grown from 5 people to 175+ (all smart, tenacious, and kind), and continue to grow. We’d love to have you be a part of this adventure. Check us out on Glassdoor [1]!

About the role

We are looking for a Product Designer to help us raise $1T for charity. The successful candidate will be responsible for designing products and features to help our nonprofit partners understand and steward their donors, and use our platform to raise money. A successful candidate will be working alongside a talented team of engineers, product managers, and designers to gain insights in the nonprofit industry, in an environment that cares about people, values work-life balance, and focuses on learning and growth.

We are looking for someone with a track record of leading projects to successful outcomes for the users and the business, with strong UX/UI and visual design skills, and an eagerness to leverage research insights and data to deliver projects.

FreeWill has set compensation and a non-negotiation policy for fairness reasons (we don't think that an individual's pay should be determined by how comfortable they are negotiating). As a result, we like to be transparent and up front about the compensation. When we make an offer, we provide multiple options so that employees can choose between compensation packages that prioritize salary or stock options. The offers for this role will be between $110,000 and $120,000; offers will also include stock options.

This role will report to the Senior Design Manager and is remote with a start date on or after January 2, 2024. We cannot sponsor H1Bs at this time.
