Guideline. Helping people save for a better future.

Guideline is the only 401(k) provider that doesn’t charge participants any fees on investments, regardless of the value of their assets or retirement account balance.

Job Description

Guideline aims to give everyone a better future by making it easy (and enjoyable!) to save for retirement. We’re disrupting an industry that hasn’t seen innovation in over 40 years — an industry that’s left small businesses and a changing workforce behind. You’ll be responsible for reimagining retirement planning from the ground up, and because Guideline is the only 401(k) provider that doesn’t charge employees any fees on investments, you’ll be building solutions for people— not profits.

  • Work closely with engineering, product management, and operations 
  • Work cross-functionally with other internal teams at Guideline
  • This role reports to the Director of Product Design

The Team

Our design team is currently made up of 4 product designers and 2 visual designers, with each designer owning their own problem space.

Required Qualifications

  • A proven track record in your personal approach to user-centered design
  • Clearly communicate and present design decisions with solid rationale, user research, and data
