Austin, Dallas, or #LI-Remote (US)

What You’ll Do:

  • Expand capabilities of an existing product - from scoping, designing, documenting, and shipping new features and improvements.
  • Provide insightful user-centered solutions that enhance our platform capabilities so they rely less on manual engineering inputs.
  • Create a strategy on how our portal toolset evolves within the team and across multiple teams over time.
  • Collaborate with designers, product managers, engineers, and stakeholders to help prioritize a design backlog for near and long-term solutions.
  • Be a strong communicator in helping shape the strategy, goals, and roadmaps of the Foundations team.
  • Own the overall look and feel of the Ops Portal - both visually (following Brand and Kindred Design Systems) and conceptually (what our brand values)
  • Validate usability using qualitative and quantitative research.

What you will need:

  • 4+ years of industry experience in designing digital products and services.
  • A portfolio that demonstrates an understanding of systems thinking, information hierarchy, and strong visual and interaction design.
  • Strong time management, prioritization, and organization skills.
  • Comprehensive knowledge of digital best practices - including responsive design.
  • Ability to manage multiple projects concurrently.

It would be great if you had:

  • Experience facilitating projects and connecting cross-functional teams toward alignment on objectives and goals.
  • Experience using and updating a robust, usable, and scalable design system within Figma
  • Working knowledge in front-end development (HTML/CSS, React, etc.).
  • The ability to understand database infrastructure influence on Front-End constraints.
  • Lead design & strategy for a growing SaaS platform.

Total Rewards:

  • Generous compensation package
  • Stock options
  • Flexible schedule and work/life balance
  • 100% company-paid health, dental, and vision insurance
  • Team building events and activities

An Insider's view of Bestow

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Bestow recently opened a new office in downtown Austin. The atmosphere promotes a collaborative, productive, and fun work environment. I appreciate the many touches that make the office that much more enjoyable - think standing desks, comfy couches, lots of natural light, a swag station, weekly lunches & more hot sauces than you could ever want.

Katie

Marketing Operations Associate

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We have an open collaboration approach as we take advantage of available channels of communication (not afraid of over-communicating) and provide enough empowerment to each team to drive value. We have substantial autonomy to make decisions and move fast!

George

Head of Strategic Finance

What makes someone successful on your team?

What makes someone successful on our team is the willingness to learn and openness to be a part of something special. Being successful requires clear and open communication, providing support, access to great resources, and diversity. I am so fortunate to be able to rely on my team for all my needs within the company.

Chastity

Customer Services Specialist

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The Marketing Compliance and Operations Compliance team operates with a “run to the risk” attitude. They think of efficiencies to ensure the business understands, identify, and mitigate risks appropriately. This anticipation of what is coming around the corner attitude, continues to develop and foster trust Bestow wide.

Luke

Deputy General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Flexible work schedules allow me to get my kids ready each morning and drop them off at school. Unlimited PTO gives me the flexibility to take time off as needed without worrying about my balance. Bestow is also a family-friendly company! I was able to bring my son to the office earlier this year and our founders took time to get to know him.

Chief Insurance Officer
