How designers work here

At AngelList Talent we ship fast, but we ship to learn. Designers research every project and scope tightly first around the riskiest assumptions. We build prototypes to test these assumptions. We ship production features as quickly as you can—we won’t know how users will really react until we do. Once we’ve learned what works, we invest time in making the product as strong as it can be.
