About Universe

We're a distributed company, so all of our roles are open to anyone, anywhere.

We believe that the internet is better when more people can build it. Universe is the first website builder designed from the ground up for mobile. In less than a minute, anyone can make a beautiful site from their phone. This is possible because of our breakthrough modular grid editor, which makes building a site as fun as playing with Lego.

We just hit over 350,000 sites created, finished YC W18, and raised a $4mm Series A from top investors

About the Role

We’re looking for a product designer to join our team and help shape our core product, the Universe app. You’ll be tasked with transforming complex problems into intuitive interfaces, and beyond that, crafting a world class experience. You’ll be working at a truly design-centric company alongside a smart, thoughtful team, that’s intentional about everything we do.

Who We’re Looking For

  • You have experience with, and a passion for designing tools for iOS, and know when to leverage existing design paradigms, and when to invent new ones.
  • You approach design with a healthy balance between both attention to detail, and a swift iterative executional pace.
  • You’re not precious about ideas or designs, and welcome a collaborative process in order to generate the best work.
  • You possess a strong visual sensibility, with a keen eye for aesthetics, just as much as you have a sense for practical, intuitive interfaces.
  • You can work across the stack, from high level conceptual thinking and UX, to high fidelity designs and animation prototypes.
  • Above all else, you should be able to think deeply about what makes a design work—or not— and clearly articulate why to all involved.
