Your background and skills

  • 3+ years of experience designing digital products and systems
  • Experience using prototyping as a way to communicate design solutions
  • Great written and verbal English communication skills
  • Solid experience with contemporary digital design tools, such as Figma, Sketch, or similar
  • You always default to searching for the right solution to a problem β€” not the prettiest

Bonus experience and skills

  • You have experience working in highly effective remote teams

Your personality

  • You have a problem-solver attitude. No problem is too big or too hard.

  • You are hungry to learn. You know you don't know it all, and do what you can to help yourself and your teammates be better every day.
  • You work well with lots of questions and few answers. We're a startup trying to do something no one else has done before, which means we're dealing with a lot of questions and what-ifs.
  • You enjoy giving and receiving feedback on a daily basis.
