About Mahway: Mahway is a venture studio with a mission to create 20 inspiring companies with unicorn potential. We originate business ideas in-house, validate them, develop them, hire the founding team, and raise capital. We tend to focus on fintech, B2B vertical SaaS, and health tech, but we often explore outside of those focus areas.

Why this role exists: Mahway is looking for an experienced Product Designer who will work with our (small, 10+ person) team to design and shape the future of our newest ventures. You will help the R+D team take ideas that we are talking about and turn those into concrete reality through end-to-end design including ideation, prototyping, user stories, mockups and some road mapping.

Mahway originates biz and startup ideas from scratch and we are looking for someone to create and build with us to help get our ideas investor-ready (and approved).


  • 8+ years of design experience (background in UX/UI and some PM preferred)

  • Certs from NN/g or equivalent appreciated

  • You have an expert level of problem-solving, and systems thinking as shown through a history of work and an exquisite portfolio

  • You can untangle hard conceptual problems and have sharp intuition for how people use products (UX)

  • You can create compelling visual designs (UI)

  • You’ve had a wide variety of experiences in a “translation” role (e.g. helping business people and designers work together by understanding both sides of the table)

  • You thrive in a remote-first work culture

  • You have sophisticated aesthetic sensibilities but are willing to sacrifice for the sake of speed


  • You operate within agile and design thinking methodologies

  • You’re a Figma power-user

  • You are a good writer and an excellent communicator

  • You can explain your designs, and design strategy, to non-designers in a way that enables them to make high-quality decisions

  • You can express complex concepts visually

  • You are scrappy and can operate quickly under project constraints

  • You understand interaction design and can make figma prototypes (to better captivate investors)


  • You are a structured thinker

  • You are a strategy-driven designer

  • You are empathetic, self-aware, and introspective

  • You are comfortable with ambiguity, uncertainty, and “half-baked” direction

  • You are comfortable “killing your darlings” and pivoting within projects and goals

  • You have strong opinions but hold them loosely

In the first 90-days:

  • You will work with our EIRs to develop solutions for market problems (examples: defining product concepts, critical features, user stories, MVP definition and exhibits, concept drawings, roadmap, and feature sequencing)

  • You will create smoke test websites using no-code tools and landing page builders

  • You will direct visual designers to create brand and marketing assets to support your work

  • You will participate in making sure the R+D OKRs are met

  • You will help to define business ideas and get them understood, approved, and funded

  • Spend 2-3 days/month in LA with the team for coworking (travel+lodging etc covered)
