Willing - UI / UX Designer

Who we are

We’re a small team that wants to make quality end-of-life planning easy and affordable for everyone. We’re ambitious, resourceful, and humble, and we want to work with talented people who will make us better.

Since launching, we’ve made incredible progress. We built an initial product that’s been used by more than 350,000 people; we passed legislation that brings end-of-life planning into the 21st century; and we built partnerships with the top legal minds in the country, including leading experts at Harvard and Yale Law Schools.

We've been featured in Wired, Business Insider, The New York Times and were one of TechCrunch's top demo day picks.

We are well-funded by some of the best technology investors in the world, including Y Combinator, Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, Accomplice, Ashton Kutcher, and 500 Startups.

Why we exist

Death leaves loved ones with an expensive mess at the worst possible time. Most property will have to pass through a lengthy court process that requires attorneys, complicated legal paperwork, and lots of fees. On average, this takes at least six months and costs thousands of dollars. On top of that, disputes can arise over extremely sensitive questions, like who gets what property, or who should raise one’s minor children. All of this while people are grieving.

We exist because we believe things don’t need to be this way — it can all be avoided if people plan. We believe in the power of technology and design to make planning so easy that everyone does it.
