About the Team
The Design System team's mission is to raise the quality bar of our products while improving consistency for our clients and the productivity of both engineers & designers. We do this by building tools, frameworks, and processes that empower our product teams to deliver more cohesive experiences and make our products easier to maintain. 
Long term, we want to enable product teams to build delightful, recognizable products our clients' trust and love. 
Consistency: We encourage reuse and standardization, which provides a more consistent experience and recognizable product. Quality: We provide high-quality components, tools, and primitives to build delightful features.Velocity: We make it effortless for product teams to build new features when using the design system quickly. Additionally, this enables product teams to focus on the bigger picture of the core product, not solving UI/UX problems.

Everyone across the financial spectrum deserves to live secure and rewarding lives. In order to successfully serve clients across the United States, the Wealthfront team is focused on hiring team members with a diverse range of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company.

About Wealthfront
Wealthfront started with the ambition to transform the investment advisory business, with the goal to unlock access to high quality investment advice for millions who were underserved by the traditional institutions. We built the first automated investment product that allows you to invest in a personalized portfolio of thousands of companies in seconds for a remarkably low fee; we then expanded into banking which made it remarkably easy for people to automate their finances end-to-end and eliminated the hassle of money management, all of which resulted in attracting more than $27 billion of our client’s hard earned savings, created the robo-advisor category and transformed the broader industry. And yet, we have a long way to go to achieve our mission to build a financial system that favors people, not institutions. 

Wealthfront’s vision is to make it delightfully easy to build long-term wealth on your own terms. This vision is more relevant than ever because millions more people are getting into the market early and investing their hard earned savings in a handful of stocks. While this is a great way to start, it is inconsistent with building long-term wealth. We want to empower young investors to expand their horizon, and easily explore and execute on a wider range of investing strategies, make informed investment decisions that are consistent with their values and beliefs while also making it effortless to grow and compound their savings exponentially, that’s transformational to their lives and their long-term future.
