Senior Product Designer
At any given time, 16 million Americans are experiencing a crisis that requires urgent help from our legal system or government. The right assistance could transform their lives. But today, most never get it.
Atticus makes it easy for any person in crisis to get the life-changing aid they deserve. In just three years, we’ve become the leading platform connecting people with disabilities to government benefits. We also help victims of accidents, misconduct, and violence get compensation from insurance. So far, we’ve gotten thousands of people access to over $2B in life-changing aid, and we’re just getting started.
We've helped more than 20,000 people in need (see our 6,000+ five-star reviews) and raised more than $50 million from top VC firms like Forerunner, GV (Google Ventures), and True Ventures. (We just closed our Series B round in May 2023, so we're well-funded for the foreseeable future.) We're small but moving fast — our team grew from 32 to 60 last year and we expect to double in size again in 2023.
To provide a great experience for a client, we have to do a lot quickly: Understand their situation, identify their needs, give advice, match them with the right lawyer, connect them to that lawyer, convince both parties to work together, and formalize the arrangement — all while doing our best to make a complex and scary system feel simple, accessible, and human. We’ve had a great start, but need the help of an amazing designer to make this experience even better for both clients and lawyers.
As a Senior Product Designer at Atticus, you’ll take ownership of user experience from the perspective of both audiences: client and lawyer. You’ll be embedded in the entire product development process, from conducting research to deeply understand and empathizing with end users, all the way to working with our incredible engineers to implement beautiful, effective designs on Atticus.com. This will be a high-impact, high-ownership role, and an opportunity to make a big difference in the lives of Americans struggling with disabilities.
While developing core user experiences, you will also have an influential role in creating systems and processes that will allow us to scale gracefully and maintain innovative and high-quality design.

Salary and Benefits
This is a rare opportunity to join a startup that has strong traction (substantial funding, well-respected backers, tremendous growth, and many happy customers) but is still small enough that you can have a huge impact and play a role in shaping our culture.
We’re a certified B Corporation tackling a critical social problem. Our mission to help people in need drives everything we do, and your work here will touch many lives.
We offer competitive pay — including equity — and generous benefits:
Medical and dental insurance with 100% of employee premiums covered
15 vacation days & ~19 paid holidays each year (including two weeks at end-of-year)
Free membership to OneMedical
$1,000 reimbursable stipend for education and training outside of work
Student loan repayment assistance, 401(k), and optional HSA
Free snacks, drinks, weekly lunches, and regular team dinners/events/retreats
Humble, thoughtful, smart, fun colleagues
We anticipate the base salary band for this role will be between $150,000 and $180,000 in addition to equity and benefits. The salary at offer will be determined by a number of factors such as candidate’s experience, knowledge, skills and abilities, as well as internal equity among our team.
Location & Covid
Today, about half our team are in Los Angeles or Phoenix (where we have offices) and half are fully remote and spread across the U.S. There are two options for this job:
Live in Los Angeles, work a few days a week (or more) out of our beautiful office in the Arts District.
Live wherever, work remotely, and travel to LA (on the company dime) as needed to be with your colleagues —somewhere between monthly and quarterly.
In short: You can do this job well remotely, and we’re committed to empowering everyone with flexibility. But we care a lot about building a great culture and we think some interactions need to happen in person, so we put a lot of thought into retreats, offsites, and other ways to gather.
As for Covid: When the pandemic started, we immediately shifted to fully remote to protect our team and shuttered our office. Today, everyone on the team is vaccinated, and many come in often (though we don’t require it). Going forward, you can expect that vaccinations will be required for all employees (unless medically unable) and that if a variant emerges that makes in-person work unsafe for vaccinated people, we’ll close our office, cease any travel, and do whatever it takes to protect and support our team.
Don't let this one get away.
