Product Designer - Contract

Remote
Part-time

StockStory is looking for an experienced product designer to help us build a new generation of stock investment advice, democratizing access to analytical methods, data and technology that was until now only reserved for top hedge funds.

Retail investing is going through a massive boom and retail focused investment research is a big market, but technologically about 20 years behind the rest of the industry. It is still mainly email newsletters and Wordpress sites. It is manual, slow, expensive and often poor quality.

At StockStory we algorithmically generate reports that provide high quality, fact-based, data-driven investment advice at scale. Our purpose is to make profitable long-term investing easier for as many individual investors as possible and we do it by giving them exactly the answers they need, not some figure-it-out-yourself tools.

We are backed by top European VCs and have a distribution partnership with Apple. Our analysis is now by default present in every iPhone in the US through the native Stocks app, alongside companies like Reuters, CNBC or The Street.

About the Role:

This is a part-time contractor role with expected commitment about 5-10 days a month. This role is remote, and open to anyone working within EST, GMT and CET time zones (US East Coast, Western and Central Europe). We are still a very small team so your work will have a massive impact. Our engineering is located in Prague, if you are close we can collaborate in person.

What will you be doing:

  • You'll be responsible for designing our core mobile & desktop product – from major product features, to the interactions that leave users smiling
  • Interaction design: you will define how experiences behave and our interaction model works
  • Visual design: you will define visual language (typography, color, layout, iconography and aesthetic) that will impact how the product is perceived and consumed
  • Notable features you will be working on: home screen, discovery interface, upgrade to paid flows

What we are looking for:

  • 5+ years relevant design experience at a B2C software, product-driven company
  • Familiar with working in small teams at early stage startups
  • Experience at talking to users and ability to explore ideas explore product ideas through mockups and prototypes before executing on them
  • You care about details and are excited to keep pushing your work
  • Familiar with tools like or similar to Figma
