Be a Part of Something Big

At Alto, we're changing the way people invest for the future.

For too long, only the ultra-wealthy could afford to benefit from alternative investments, and that meant a lot of missed opportunities for everyday investors. Alto was founded on the belief that a diversified portfolio is essential to investing for the future, and that's only possible if everyone can invest in the assets they're truly interested in.

So we created a solution that allows ordinary people to invest their tax-advantaged retirement funds into non-traditional assets, like real estate, startups, securitized artworks, cryptocurrency, and more.

By joining Alto's growing team, you'll be helping to make our mission a reality. And you'll work with some truly unique people who are passionate about what they do. We're also pretty big on celebrating individuality—after all, one of our core values is "you do you." And we actually live it. Really.

Alto is looking for a remote (within the U.S.) brand designer with a strong portfolio and a passion for collaborating with designers, product managers, partners and executives to help our customers win. Within the framework of a strong brand identity, you'll work to conceptualize, strategize and design content that will be used across web, social media, print, video, digital experiences and other mediums.

What you'll do:

  • Collaborate daily with a cross-functional team to create great stories that our team will use to educate customers, buyers and move the business forward
  • Conceptualize, strategize and design content and product marketing campaigns that while digitally native could potentially later include activations across print, web, social, event, environment, OOH
  • Manage asset libraries for reusable, systematic design
  • Maintain and evolve visual design guidelines
  • Support cross-functional teams across all brand touchpoints that include but are not limited to creating assets for internal onboarding, conferences, customer outreach
  • These can range from internal training documents, PR related activities, sales decks and one sheets
  • Research and analyze industry brand and design trends and competitor sites and strategies

What we'd like to see in your application:

  • 8 + years experience, 3+ years as a Brand Designer
  • At least 1-3 years of visual design experience, preferably digital in a tech, product and/or SaaS environment
  • A portfolio of compelling design work
  • Demonstrated experience maintaining and upholding brand guidelines
  • Bachelor’s degree in graphic design, communication or fine arts - or equivalent experience
  • Bonus points: experience in Enterprise SaaS

What you bring to the table:

  • Strong skills in branding, typography and visual design
  • Proficiency with software tools such as Figma, Creative Suite, Google Slides and Docs
  • Clear at articulating the value of design through verbal and visual presentation skills
  • Ability to be a systems thinker that loves to solve complex problems through smart, visual storytelling
  • Highly detail-oriented, with a drive for perfection down to the last pixel but still agile enough to concept, iterate, and execute
  • Illustration, animation and presentation design

Why Alto?

We are a dynamic and collaborative team, all working towards a common goal. With every interaction, you feel our culture throughout our company. We care about diversity, inclusion, and belonging, and every voice is heard. We also care most about our people. We show it through our actions, and we offer a lot of really great benefits, including:
