Job Description

Cadre is a real estate investment platform built to democratize access to the $16 trillion commercial real estate industry. Our online platform allows individuals and institutions to seamlessly invest in fully-vetted real estate investment opportunities from around the United States in minutes.

We combine our institutional experience from companies like Blackstone and Goldman Sachs with technology expertise from companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook to empower our investors through direct access, lower fees, greater transparency, and unprecedented liquidity. 

To date, we have completed over $3 billion in real estate transactions and have raised over $135 million from world-class investors including Andreessen Horowitz, General Catalyst, Thrive Capital, Khosla Ventures, Goldman Sachs, and others.

About the Role

We are seeking a Lead Product Designer who will own the design direction at Cadre. As a Design Lead, you will be responsible for helping our team deeply understand the needs of our investors and build delightful and intuitive experiences throughout their investing journey. You will also oversee the user experience of our internal tools that enable our teams to efficiently serve our customers. You will work closely with the team to influence not only what we build, but how we build it by developing best practices in user research, UI/UX, design systems, implementation/delivery, and gathering feedback. 

The Lead Product Designer position is an individual contributor (IC) role that will report to the Head of Product. This is the highest design position at the company so there are also opportunities to manage other designers if desired. Success in this role is defined by team performance as well as the quality of the user experience including the impact, consistency, ease of use, and aesthetics of the final product. 

What you’ll do

  • Lead the design direction at Cadre
  • Collaborate closely with the product, engineering, and design teams in New York to help define features and ensure high-quality user experiences
  • Design wireframes, flows, prototypes, and high-fidelity visuals
  • Give and solicit feedback from your fellow designers and other product team members
  • Own the design problems and decisions from initial concept to launch (and beyond)

What You Have

  • 6+ years of product design experience
  • Portfolio showcasing strong design fundamentals and meaningful product work with demonstrable business impact
  • Experience working and collaborating with diverse teams
  • Experience shipping multiple products
  • Experience turning complex problems into simple and engaging customer experiences
  • Proven comfort with an iterative design process that includes accepting and acting on feedback and constructive criticism
  • Excellence in communicating and conveying your ideas clearly


  • Our biggest asset? Our team members and culture: join a fun and driven environment to work with and learn from some of the brightest people in the industry, equally intent on building a great business as on celebrating each victory.
  • 401(k), meaningful equity, full healthcare coverage, and unlimited PTO
  • Amazing office space in the heart of SoHo with fully-stocked kitchen
  • Ability to work remotely anytime
