About Bondlink

BondLink provides a SaaS platform to bond issuers in the $4 trillion municipal bond industry. We have recently raised a large Series A, we have strong revenue growth, and we are already working with many of the largest issuers in the country. 

While our product is finance focused, make no mistakes; internally we are a genuine tech-first startup culture.

Our co-founders include a serial tech entrepreneur with multiple successes and a senior ex-government official with deep experience in the wheelhouse of our product offering. 

Culturally we provide all the startup bells and whistles, and we have a beautiful new office in Fort Point that we’re looking to fill with talented people.

About the Role

 We are looking for a junior product designer with a strong UI/UX and visual design skills, as well as some familiarity with print design. This role will report to the Director of UX & Product Design and will primarily support our product team, but will also help the marketing team on an as-needed basis. We are a growing startup where new ideas and projects are constantly coming up, so we’re looking for someone who is adaptable, collaborative, and eager to jump in wherever design help is needed. Please submit a link to your portfolio along with your resume.

What you’ll be doing

  • Work on the UI/UX design of our core web-based product offering
  • Create mockups and wireframes for new features and significant enhancements
  • Work in an agile environment and help see the design through from mockup discussions all the way to production of the full-cycle product development process
  • Consult with other departments to continue developing a best-in-class product
  • Help develop and maintain brand design guidelines
  • Communicate constantly with software engineers to assess viability of design decisions
  • Support the marketing team on as-needed basis (conference materials, postcards, emails, presentations, etc.)

What You'll Bring

  • Understanding of UX best practices
  • Wireframes and basic prototyping
  • Strong visual design (mostly based on brand guidelines)
  • Responsive design
  • Design for accessibility
  • Ability to support design decisions with research/testing
  • Print design, including preparing print-ready files
  • Familiarity with HTML/CSS (nice-to-have – you won’t be expected to code)

Software you should know

  • Sketch
  • Photoshop
  • Prototyping/animation tools (we use Axure and Principle currently)
  • Print design tools (we use Illustrator and InDesign currently)

An Insider's view of BondLink

What are some social events your company does?

At BondLink we have all your typical start-up events (happy hours, team lunches, ping-pong tournaments, etc). By far our best event was an outing to Nashua for a curling lesson. It was a great way to hang out with the team and try out the greatest of Olympic sports.

Matt

Senior Software Engineer

What projects are you most excited about?

I joined BondLink after 30 years in the muni bond market to lead our investor outreach efforts. As a former muni research analyst and trader, I have a network of contacts that can help us tailor our products going forward to best match the needs and expectations of the buyside. I’m thrilled about the opportunity to help shape BondLink’s evolution.

Murph

Senior Manager, Investor Relations and Outreach

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I’ve worked over a year on our CS team but am now working on our marketing efforts after expressing an interest in how we communicate with our audience. As a result, I’m transitioning into a hybrid role that allows me to maintain relationships with our clients so that our marketing efforts better speak to their needs.

Melissa

Customer Success & Marketing Coordinator

What is your vision for the company?

Right now, BondLink is referred to simply as a disruptor, but we see this company eventually truly changing the way state and local governments access the $4 trillion municipal bond market. We’re bringing efficiency to the process, and we’re illustrating to both issuers and investors, the vast benefits of optimizing disclosure and transparency.
