Your opportunity:

Join our tight-knit early-stage distributed team that thrives on interesting technical challenges and building magical products that improve peoples' lives. As the Head of Design, you will be directly responsible for helping making cryptocurrency more user friendly by owning the end-to-end user experience of CoinTracker from the design language to the user interface to the user flows and everything in between. You'll also be responsible for helping CoinTracker build a top-tier design organization.

You will:

  • Design sketches, wireframes, prototypes, and user experiences.
  • Work closely with engineers to build and implement intuitive product designs.
  • Work collaboratively with cross functional teams to achieve user objectives.
  • Conduct user research to better understand the needs of cryptocurrency users.

You may enjoy this role if you:

  • Are comfortable working on very high level loosely defined concepts down to highly specific tactical objectives.
  • Love understanding how users think and are empathetic about their problems.
  • Like creative work and exploration.

We're looking for someone who:

  • Has an unreasonably high bar for design, both functional and aesthetic.
  • Has experience designing successful consumer technology products from the ground up.
  • Is eager to build a world class design organization.
  • Is passionate about making cryptocurrency more accessible at scale.
  • Is proficient with collaborative design software like Figma.
  • Works effectively in a remote setting and are able to overlap with our core hours of 9 AM to 12 PM PT.
  • Thrives in an early-stage startup environment with less stability and more ambiguity.

What's it like working at CoinTracker?

We are a fully distributed, tight-knit team spread across North America and Europe. We have minimal process, and the majority of our time is spent working and collaborating asynchronously through tools like Figma, Github, Intercom, Linear, Notion, Slack, and Zoom. We also stay aligned and bonded through two-week sprints, standups, all hands and socials. We aim to empower every individual on the team with full transparency, ownership, autonomy, and clear objectives. Learn more about our guiding principles.

If this sounds exciting, we'd love to hear from you!

Technology

Our engineering process includes:

  • Code reviews
  • Continuous integration
  • Multiple daily automated deployments to production
  • Automated testing with >85% code coverage

Some of the technical challenges we face are:

  • Lots of data — billions of data points to track transactions and market pair prices.
  • Data structures & algorithms — automated transfer detection, cost basis tracking, tax optimization, and more. Your CS fundamentals finally come in handy!
  • Scalability — some cryptocurrency users, such as algorithmic traders, accumulate millions of transactions per year. CoinTracker needs to work seamlessly for those power crypto traders.
  • Blockchain — whether it's running our own nodes, implementing xPub address generation and traversal, or parsing smart contracts to seamlessly support decentralized trading, we get our hands dirty with core blockchain technology.
  • Technical complexity — integrating with hundreds of exchanges and blockchains, and supporting thousands of cryptocurrencies means we have to methodically architect our software and build critical monitoring systems to deliver a robust and accurate platform.

Our tech stack is:

  • Web: HTML, Javascript, React, CSS, Sass
  • Mobile: React Native, Expo, GraphQL
  • Backend: Python, Flask, GraphQL, Postgres, Redis, Python RQ
  • Infrastructure: Heroku, AWS
