As the first designer on our team, you will be wearing a lot of hats. You’ll be responsible for creating our UI kit, redesigning and streamlining the existing workflows, creating and quickly iterating on mockups, as well as helping out with marketing and sales materials.


The impact you’ll have

  • At Passthrough, product isn’t dictated by PMs, who hand it to engineers to build, to pass it to design to make it look pretty. You’ll be intimately involved in the planning process, because great designers help us all see around the corner.
  • You’ll be the first design hire, but not the last. We need help building a design org over time.
  • Last, you’ll help build other marketing and other assets as we continue to sign clients and partners at a breakneck pace. While this isn’t your primary job, we do need help here too.
  • You'll have a voice in the product, significant equity upside, and a very competitive salary.



The company you'll join

We exist to make investing in the private markets as easy as Robinhood did for public stocks.

More and more people invest in private equity and venture capital every day. Even though this asset class has been around for decades, it wasn't built to handle this volume of investors. Signing up for Robinhood? It takes 2 minutes. Investing in a VC fund? You've got to fill out a 200-question questionnaire each time that you make an investment. The forms aren't standardized and not every question applies to every investor. Investors miss questions or answer the wrong ones and then have to redo the entire thing.

We built a TurboTax-style workflow for investors to only see the questions that matter to them and see EVERY question that matters to them to make fund closing (i.e. the process of investing into a VC fund) easy. Our world record document completion time is 6 minutes.

That may sound boring but we've processed BILLIONS of dollars for THOUSANDS of investors in just the past 6 months. And by having an investor run through our workflow, we capture their identity so we can allow them to repurpose it wherever they'd like in the future. We call this an "investor passport" and it's the whole reason we built this business.

The problems you’ll solve

We’re trying to make it as simple as possible to fill out complicated legal forms, and perform other painful tasks around making investments into private funds (i.e. venture capital, private equity).

As the first designer on our team, you will be wearing a lot of hats. You’ll be responsible for creating our UI kit, redesigning and streamlining the existing workflows, creating and quickly iterating on mockups, as well as helping out with marketing and sales materials.

The team you’ll work with

This role reports to Alex, the CTO at Passthrough. You’ll work closely with the engineering team and another cofounder who leads product to bring your designs to life.

Passthrough’s co-founders are three ex-Cartans that helped scale Carta’s financial services business from 0 to 250 people and from Series A to Series F+. Alex was the Head of Engineering, Tim was the Head of Go-to-Market, and Ben was one of the earliest leaders in operations and product. We know how to build engineering, product, and revenue generating businesses.

The interview process

We go through the same steps for candidates to ensure equity in our hiring process. We move fast.

  1. Founder screen: Meet our CTO Alex. Alex will learn about your background and help you understand more about the problems that Passthrough is solving.
  2. Live case study: You’ll go through a case study so we can see not just what you can do, but how and why you do it.
  3. Panel interview: Meet our other founders, Ben and Tim, plus reconnect with Alex or another member of our engineering/product team for a behavioral style interview. Expect “tell me about a time when” type of questions.
  4. Decision: We’ll get back to you within a week of the panel interview.
