Maxwell is on a mission to make mortgages human. We are revolutionizing the $8.5T residential mortgage market by reimagining how lending teams work together with borrowers to buy a home. Based in beautiful Denver, Colorado, Maxwell is a VC-funded, Techstars-backed company that empowers loan officers by intelligently automating their workflow so the focus isn’t the paperwork, it’s the people.

And we believe that doing well also means doing good: a portion of all of Maxwell’s revenues is dedicated to building homes for those who need them most in Haiti and El Salvador. We’ll do whatever it takes, wearing multiple hats every day, to make each other and our customers a success, and to make the world a better place. Come join us as we build a new way to finance a home!


You are a designer passionate about user-centered design and usability, an innovative and creative problem solver, a self-starter with the ability to work in a fast-moving, high-growth company. You pay equal attention to the detail of the pixels to create a visual experience and the philosophy and execution of interaction design. As a UX/UI Designer at Maxwell, you'll take ownership of a product that helps manage the homebuying experience for tens of thousands of homebuyers -- involved in the entire product development process, from early research and visioning to tweaking pixels up to launch.

  • Deeply understanding our user journey, personas and behaviors, pushing Maxwell to improve and refine our product


  • 7+  years of experience in the full range of product design, interaction design and visual design

  • An excellent communicator and influencer who can work well with various groups and levels of the organization, and have enough chops to communicate your ideas to our engineers

  • Experience designing and shipping web and mobile products that customers love, being able to distill complex business problems into simple and elegant solutions

  • Passion for data-driven decisions

  • Ability to design for any platform (iOS, Android, mobile web, etc.)

  • Mastery of design tools: Sketch, Figma, Illustrator, Photoshop and mastery of prototyping tools (e.g. Framer, Pixate, Origami, HTML/CSS/JS, After Effects, Swift)

  • Web portfolio with examples of visual and interaction design

  • Superb attention to detail

  • Ability to work well on an ego-free, highly collaborative, and cross-functional team


An opportunity to be a key part of an agile team of thinkers and doers collaborating to change a multi-trillion dollar industry. We offer meaningful equity at an early stage company, a competitive salary, top-tier medical, dental and vision insurance, and flexible work hours and vacation time.

Here are our awesome benefits in black and white:

  • Meaningful equity as an early employee at Maxwell, we want you to be an owner that makes decisions and GSDs like one as we build the future together

  • Top-tier insurance plans to select from along with a Flexible Spending Account where you can set aside pre-tax money for out-of-pocket medical expenses.

  • Parking and public transport allowance to get you to the office in your own way whether you want to park or take the RTD (up to $100/month reimbursed)

  • 100% of costs paid for your hardware/software you need to do your job

  • At least three weeks of vacation time plus all 10 days of major holidays

  • Up to two days off to volunteer each year at the charity of your choice

  • An “Even Merrier Christmas” when we shut down the office between Christmas and New Year so you can enjoy your family and friends.

  • A powder ski day for that one day when you’ve just got to hit the slopes with no lift lines (Three rules: you’re not disrupting anyone on the team by doing it, you make up the work day within 14 days, and this is an experiment based on trust)

An Insider's view of Maxwell

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have an amazing team that really works hard & cares not only about getting their job done but about going above and beyond. Everybody is eager to learn: about our product, our customers, how the industry operates, & about each other. We have created a culture where there are no stupid questions & always someone around to answer those questions.


Customer Success Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The company culture requires high levels of personal responsibility and accountability, but with lots of freedom to be creative and accommodate personal work habits. Everyone is accessible and willing to help each other.


Business Ops & Finance Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Maxwell respects each employees personal life, cares about their success, and wants them to succeed both professionally and personally. They value us enough to take the time to disconnect and listen to every single person's opinion.


Head of Growth

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Every quarter each team makes a Big Bet. The bar is high: a big investment that could fail, but if successful would be a step-function change for Maxwell. We all know we're here to innovate and own the future. So we celebrate failures along with wins. If we're not failing, we're not learning, and we're probably not winning either.


Co-Founder & CEO

What's something quirky about your company?

We have a floating "Powder Ski Day" that we can use whenever we want. Got to love the company-wide appreciation for fresh powder :p
