About Compose.ai

Our mission at Compose.ai is to amplify human potential by bringing intelligence to human-computer communication. This is a hard problem but we believe deeply in the mission and lean into audacious goals.

Our core product is a freemium Chrome extension that helps automate your writing using AI. You know how Gmail autocompletes your sentences for you? It's like that, except it's available everywhere, across all of your devices and tools. So whether you're writing an email in Superhuman, replying to your customers on Intercom, or writing documentation on Notion, compose.ai is there. We are currently in a private beta with over 6,000 signups. We created our own proprietary AI model that is real-time, personalized, and adapts to wherever you're typing. If you believe AI is going to change the way we live and the way we write, then we would love to talk to you.

About the role
Skills: Adobe XD, Figma

Compose AI is looking for a Lead Product Designer to own product design projects from 0 to 1 as we continue to launch new products and features.

We appreciate and are looking for designers who think deeply, speak clearly, love collaboration and feedback, and think typing is overrated. What we’re building isn’t just a simple web app, we’re redefining how humans interact with computers. Think of it like Neural Link without the helmet.

  • Partner closely with the CEO, Product Managers, and Engineers to define effective solutions to design problems

  • A strong design portfolio showcasing your approach to solving a variety of complicated problems using best practices of user-centered design, with production examples of products taken from concept to development
  • Experience in user research techniques including user interviews and facilitating usability testing
  • Ability to clearly communicate research results, distill complex user experience concepts, and communicate design vision to your team

About Us

At Compose AI, we help people type less and live more. Isn't it crazy that people are still typing every word of every letter on 99% of the websites and programs they use every day? That's why we built the best-in-class autocomplete, but we didn't stop there—Compose AI also lets you rewrite your sentences in different tones or styles and can even generate whole paragraphs and other pieces of copy. We are a fast-growing team backed by YCombinator, Craft Ventures, Sequoia, along with founders from Kayak, Hubspot, Vercel, and Honey. Join us in our mission to make AI an extension of the human.


The ideal candidate is technology agnostic and enjoys picking up new technologies.

We are creating real-time domain-adaptable language models that are serving inferences on every keystroke to our Chrome extension.
