There is a huge opportunity for designers to build products from the ground up that redefine how VCs make decisions and help all Founders gain their competitive edge with fundraising, hiring, and business strategy. NFX Products like Signal and The Company Brief are currently used by tens of thousands of Founders across the world so you will also be making an impact that is global.
So, who are you?
You love to ship. You optimize for moving fast and getting features out to users quickly. You understand the balance of building something usable, but not perfect. You prefer iterating on designs as users are using them rather than obsessing over details in Sketch or Figma.
You think about the big picture and dig into the details. You think about the overall product, the brand, and most importantly, the user from ideation to ship. You effortlessly navigate between thinking about the why & the what, to the details behind how we build.
You are low ego. Collaboration is your best method. You don’t care or remember who came up with the best idea. Engineers, product managers, and execs all love working with you because you make them all feel heard and you’re able to find a middle ground in dissenting opinions.
Learning makes you happy. You approach life with a beginner’s mind and with deep curiosity. You may already be following the VC + startup ecosystem. You tinker with the latest design tools even if you’re faster and more comfortable using Sketch or Figma. You are constantly interested in improving your skills as a product builder and technologist, learning from your team, users, and design community. Inside and outside of work, you ask for feedback continuously, listen intently, launch quickly, test hypotheses and are constantly iterating.

NFX is the venture firm for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs. Our team has collectively started 10 technology companies, so we deeply believe in the power of transformative ideas. That’s why we started a venture firm unlike any other - one that looks more like a media & software company than a financial institution. We believe the next generation of tech Founders deserve an even better VC experience, and we’re building it.
Venture capital is a people business, but as technologists we’re certain that software will radically change how innovation is funded and supported in the next decade. Our Founders have exited for over $10 billion while reinventing industries like real estate, healthcare, and gaming. We believe the timing is right for venture capital to now be reinvented via software.
NFX is a collaborative and close-knit team and we’re taken care of. You should expect:
