About you

You’re more than just a designer, you’re a creative leader. You’re wicked smart, usually called a rock star wherever you go - you live and breathe your work (because really, it’s play).

You take accountability for your work. You design because your work can have a direct impact on the lives of real people.

You have a solid grounding in UX design, as well as a strong eye for aesthetics and visual design.

You can create prototypes, flows and wireframes, and can do mockups and visuals when needed. You understand research, data and how to construct questions and conduct interviews.

You’re a creative type with the analytical ability to think think through solutions to real world business problems.

You’re comfortable in a media lab startup environment where you’ll be working on multiple projects serving very different users where you’ll be prototyping, testing, iterating and pivoting continuously.

You’re technical. You can code CSS and maybe even Javascript if necessary. You get the importance of being technical and diving in.

You’re a great communicator and collaborator. You’re a proactive do-er who gets things done. You create energy.

What our interview process is like

You’ll meet (virtually, for now) with our CEO and team leads. In addition to Q&A, we’ll run through a series of design tests and problem solving scenarios. Our goal will be to gauge your ability to solve challenging problems and develop effective design solutions quickly.

Once employed with us, you become eligible for incorporation into our Partner equity and profit-sharing program after six months of employment, based on performance.
