Design Director



Software Engineering, Design
New York, NY, USA
Posted on Thursday, May 23, 2024

Titan is the rebel challenger in a very old industry. The present era is run by ancient players: Fidelity, Schwab, & Goldman Sachs. The problem is that none of them were built on modern rails and have horrible user experiences. There have been new things built (think: “investing apps”). They are either 1) gimmicky casinos or 2) sleepy commodities. We won’t say names. Why hasn’t anyone built a modern Goldman Sachs for everyone? That’s our mission.

Titan is a next-generation investment firm. We aspire to lead our generations’ wealth.

We are fighters at heart. We fight to build products that are truly democratized. For example, we launched the first institutional grade cash management product open to everyday investors via Titan Smart Cash. We launched the first ever Venture fund for everyday investors in partnership with Cathie Wood’s ARK. We’ve been able to raise significant capital from some of Silicon Valley’s best, like a16z and General Catalyst.

Now let’s talk about you. We’re highly selective with who we choose to bring onto the team, but if you resonate with the above, we’d love to meet you.

Role Overview

Titan is growing at a rapid pace and design is at the core of what we build. As a Design Director, you’ll help ensure our visual brand identity comes to life holistically and consistently across all touchpoints. You will be at the center of all things design through this new phase of growth within the business.

This role is quite important. Most wealth products from Silicon Valley are homogenous, built for “prosumer” types. Said simply, they come across as money casinos. Titan’s goal is to firmly diverge from this pack and chart a new course for what wealth means in the modern era. We believe design is a critical ingredient to building an iconic brand - you’ll direct how how we unlock this, working closely with our founders. More to be shared during the interview process.
