Design is in our DNA. Norman doors not withstanding

We believe that thoughtful design is crucial to every product, experience, and culture. We are looking for a core team member to help design our products and bring amazing customer experiences to life.

Not all skills are required, but that's why we call it a wishlist.

  • UI design - color, graphics, illustration, typography
  • UX design - interactions, emotional appeal, and usability
  • Service design - information structures, data flows
  • Complex systems thinking - customer journeys

Languages (optional)

  • SQL

Technology Tools

  • Hi-fi protoyping - Figma or equivalent

Some beliefs we would like to share in common. We value cognitive diversity and independent perspectives.
  • We believe in home ownership for our customers and equity ownership for employees
  • We believe that the best products aren't one hit wonders. They are part of systems and cultures that prioritize innovation.
  • We like to solve problems because the are fun. We pick problems that are valuable to solve.
  • You make the culture of where you work. We hope to make a culture that is conscious, caring, and fun.
  • Iteration is a key to success - Build, test, learn, iterate. A product is never final.
  • Teamwork is valuable, and individual contributors are equally value. If you prefer individual contributions, we like you just as much!
  • Management is a myth, we are builders, doers, and hackers.
  • Productivity is not a full calendar. We prefer empty calendars, full minds, busy hands, and some laughter along the wasy
A company is a group of people with a shared ambition to make a difference
