Mobile/Web Product Designer (UX & UI)
Design | New York, NY | Full Time
Everplans is on a mission to help people better prepare for the future by getting their lives organized today.
We're an NYC-based startup technology company recently acquired by National Guardian Life Insurance Company (NGL) that helps people organize, share, and keep all the critical information, wishes, and documents they need, and that their family may need, up-to-date and at their fingertips. Through a combination of original content, a personalized guidance engine, and an intuitive digital vault, people can say goodbye to sticky notes around the computer, old file folders underneath the bed, and out-of-date paperwork.
Everplans is primarily distributed via financial professionals to their clients, through insurance and financial services organizations to their policyholders and customers, and as a benefit employers can offer their employees.
