UX Designer, Product at Onebrief (S21)
Onebrief makes military headquarters run seamlessly
About Onebrief

Onebrief makes military planning fast and collaborative. This type of planning is characterized by creative problem solving and high-stakes decision making, but currently it's unacceptably slow. Among U.S., NATO and allied countries, there are thousands of units where Onebrief is sorely needed now. As one of our customers said, “if we had Onebrief in 2001, Afghanistan would be in different shape today.” In 5 years, it will be unthinkable to present military options to the President in anything but Onebrief.

We are on track to be one of the first defense companies built in the model of modern SaaS startups to deliver a consumer grade user experience with real impact.

We are post-revenue and backed by a mix of Silicon Valley venture capital and former military officers. We’re also an AFWERX (US Air Force) SBIR awardee.

We are based in Austin/TX but operate as an all-remote company.

About the role

Onebrief makes military planning seamless and represents a shift in paradigm for future military decisions. It is an all-in-one tool that supports both the creative and process-oriented aspects of military planning. In Onebrief, planners use maps, boards, diagrams, timelines, spreadsheets, slide decks and text documents to create their plans—all while sharing a common database. Everything stays in sync, in real time. Our approach has been refined and validated through hundreds of user experiments.

We’re post-revenue (approaching $2M in ARR). We are backed by Y Combinator (S21) and top-tier VCs, including Caffeinated Capital (Affirm, Docker, Notion, and more). Our elite team combines the best of tech and military talent, including education and experience at Google, Adobe, Delta Force, TOPGUN, and more.

Given our current traction we can barely keep up with demand. This is an opportunity for you to join us with all the perks of a founding employee.

What you will achieve

As a product designer at Onebrief, your job will be to solve complex military planning problems and help develop a seamless, end-to-end planning tool.

You will have the opportunity to travel and partner with military planners from around the world, empathize with their needs, and translate those into design solutions. You will have the support of a team of engineers and another product designer. Your work will span across UX, UI, and user research and will cover all facets of the product, from defining ground-up new features to shaping our design system.

Most importantly, you'll work as a true partner to our founders, with plenty of flexibility to reshape your role over time as needed for yours and our company's success.

You’ll report directly to Rafa, our CTO and co-founder.
