Change How the World Invests
Tycoon University – the leading online educator for individual investors – is hiring!
We’re looking for a strong web designer to help super charge our marketing and product sites.
About The Job
As a web designer at Tycoon University you’ll be responsible for a wide range of creative tasks that include:
  • Creating new solutions to unique design challenges
  • Planning and sketching page wireframes
  • Converting those wireframes into mock-ups
  • Converting the mock-ups into HTML designs
  • Creating stunning email campaigns
  • Producing compelling digital and print marketing and packaging materials
  • And the list goes on…
We’ve been in business since 2004 but we still have the same energy as we did when we first started.  So if you think you’re ready for a unique challenge and can keep up with us, then share your work and your thoughts with us.  Emails us at  techjobs at tycoonu dot com – include the word “Designer” in the subject line.  Tell us why you’re the one for us.
We need someone who:
  • Understands the basics of user experience design, typography, color and layout – It’s not enough to simply know one of these disciplines.  As a visual designer at Tycoon, you’ll need to know ALL of them.  We want designers who can think through a problem and its solutions from end-to-end.
  • Has a passion for the web and design in general – We’re extremely passionate about what we do here.  All of our instructors are former Wall Street brokers, traders, hedge fund managers, etc.  We expect the same from our designers as well.  We want you to LOVE what you do as we think it’ll help you produce more effective designs.  So be prepared to tell us about your favorite designers, design books and blogs!
  • Is results oriented and metrics driven — We’re always into building something beautiful, but it has to be something that works and helps to accomplish business goals as well.  So we’re only looking for the mature visual designer who truly understands the delicate balance of user goals and business goals when it comes to designing a page.  We also need someone who can check their ego at the door — we’re not into “design for design’s sake”, we’re driven by results and results alone.  So we want designers who are familiar with (and worship at the altar of) A/B testing and multi-variate testing.
  • Direct Response Marketing Experience is a HUGE Plus – As any designer here will tell you, half your job is to design, the other half is to make sure your designs make money! So we’re looking for folks who have experience with short-form email capture pages, sales pages, etc.
  • Can communicate with everyone — As a designer, you inherently need to have strong communication skills.  But at Tycoon, they’ll need to be exceptionally strong.  Not only will you be working with our tech team and our marketing staff, but you’ll need to communicate with former Wall Streeters as well.  We want someone who’s comfortable in any situation and can present a strong case and vision for their work.
  • Technical experience is not required but it’s certainly a plus – You don’t have to know how to code in Ruby or PHP, but we won’t knock you for it.  We mainly want someone who’s familiar with web standards, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc.
Is this you?  Then share your work and your thoughts with us.  Emails us at  techjobs at tycoonu dot com – include the word “Designer” in the subject line.  Tell us why you’re the one for us.
What We’re Like to Work With
We like to think we’re a pretty fun bunch.  We have two offices, one in the heart of the East Village in New York CIty, and our Head Quarters are on Atlantic Avenue in downtown Delray Beach, Florida.  Both locations offer ample opportunities for after work dinners and drinks.  We’re a pretty laid back crew but when it’s time to work, we also know how to put our heads down and make things happen – we’re looking for people who have a great work ethic and know how to do the same.
Emails us at  techjobs at tycoonu dot com – include the word “Designer” in the subject line.  Pass along your work and your thoughts on why you’d like to work with us at Tycoon.
