Job Description

Anchorage Digital is an industry leader, a dynamic startup and growing business, and a diverse and welcoming team where individual professional growth is priority. Founded in 2017, Anchorage is a regulated platform that offers institutions simple and secure participation in digital assets, all integrated with industry-leading custody. We’re the infrastructure company behind your favorite bank or fintech company and the platform for institutional participation in digital assets. Additionally, Anchorage Digital received the first federal banking charter for a digital bank in January 2021, setting the standard for crypto regulation in the United States. Anchorage has raised a total of $137M in funding from leading investors including GIC, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, Andreessen Horowitz, VISA, and Blockchain Capital.


Product Designers at Anchorage Digital develop a deep understanding of the products we build and the problems we solve in order to innovate new patterns that meld traditional financial workflows with the world of crypto. We design solutions to questions with no precedent for institutional users. How do we make the experience of sending funds safe & secure, but also highly efficient? How do we balance the human need for privacy with the open & transparent nature of the blockchain? How do clients express their opinion in on-chain proposals with the newest digital asset? 

You’ll lead a small and growing team of designers that are intentional, collaborative, and relentlessly curious, to play a core part in establishing the design culture at our fast-growing company. This is a rare opportunity to help shape the future of the financial world by defining the way institutions (all over the world) interact with digital assets.


As a Product Design Manager you will: 

  • Lead and grow a team of high performing designers working across multiple inter-related product lines. 
  • Improve and institute lightweight and effective design processes.
  • Collaborate cross-functionally to research and define user problems, shape our strategy, and oversee the building process of our design system and product from the ground up.
  • Instill and ensure design principles throughout the product: security, usability, simplicity.
  • Work in a fast paced environment with short feedback loops, making reasoned prioritization choices alongside the Product team.
  • Uphold a company culture where Design and Engineering are valued equally.


We are looking for Managers who: 

  • Have experience managing and mentoring a team of independent, high performing designers.
  • Are proactive about the career growth of those who report to you.
  • Have experience with end-to-end product design and shipping products to customers.
  • Have experience working cross-functionally in an organization with many stakeholders.
  • Have an understanding of design’s relationship to business goals.
  • Have a passion for high quality, well-crafted visual design.
  • Are knowledgeable of designing cross-platform for web and mobile (iOS).
  • Have some special combination of the following: creative, humble, detail-oriented, self-aware, curious, thoughtful, and tenacious.


Bonus Points:

  • You've seen and were emotionally moved by the musical Hamilton (the founder of the U.S. financial system :)


Anchorage Digital is committed to being a welcoming and inclusive workplace for everyone, and we are intentional about making sure people feel respected, supported and connected at work—regardless of who you are or where you come from. We value and celebrate our differences and we believe being open about who we are allows us to do the best work of our lives.
