About the role

At Draftbit, we believe that software should be a democratizing agent that makes it possible for anyone to turn their app ideas into reality.

Draftbit is a collaborative product development tool, focused on mobile apps. Our platform allows technical and non-technical teams to work together to build native mobile apps. Apps built in Draftbit produce high quality React Native code that can be exported at any time so you can build inside and outside our platform.

About The Position:

The experience people have with us, whether it be building apps using our product, learning about or community or interacting with our content, is essential to the success our company. We are looking for a product designer who:

  • Understands how to uncover people's needs & desires, but also knows how to filter those the lens of business needs and their own sense of aesthetics/taste
  • Knows that doing something the "right" way = understanding the right speed/quality trade-off for the job
  • Doesn't self-identify as UX or UI, visual or experience, etc - you have a utility belt of skills and the knowledge of when to apply them (and when you don't/need help)
  • Is deeply fascinated by how software products are built and has sufficient technical fluency to design experiences for technical people
  • Has designed products for mass-market use - Draftbit is a technical product but anyone needs to be successful building apps on our platform
  • Enjoys collaborating and regularly seeks feedback on their work - you understand the difference between a healthy level of transparency/iteration vs "design by committee"

About You:

The right person probably has:

  • A few years experience as a designer at a product company, with at least one of those years at a consumer-facing business or B2B business with a mass-market user base
  • Experience working within a design system (and experience breaking from it when it makes sense)
  • Fluency with a number of design tools, such as Sketch, Abstract, Zeplin, Figma, etc
  • Some experience writing code/building aspects of products you've designed, likely via HTML/CSS/JS

Additional Details:

This is a full-time position that can be based at our Chicago HQ, San Francisco office or remote.

As an early team member, you'll have an outsized impact on what we build and how we build it - we don't succeed without you. We offer a flexible work environment and generous benefits.

  • We're headquartered in Chicago but have a global team, so we emphasize flexibility in your location and schedule.
  • We pay for 100% of your medical, dental & vision insurance premiums and 50% for partners & dependents.
  • We offer unlimited sick, personal, and vacation days.
  • We provide standing desks for everyone at our Chicago HQ and co-working stipends for our remote team members.
