About Mighty

Mighty makes Google Chrome faster & use 10x less memory.

We spend most of our time in a web browser but it's often our slowest app. Mighty speeds up Chrome on your laptop by streaming it from a more powerful computer in the cloud—that makes your browser & other apps run significantly faster. Unlike regular Google Chrome, it doesn't slowdown if you have too many tabs open. It uses less power & CPU to prolong battery life. Web pages load half a second faster. When you have many tabs open, it will help you quickly find a tab. Built for speed, it's like putting a rocket booster on your web browser.

Mighty was started by the founder of Mixpanel & we’re looking to hire an engineer to join our small team.

** We are only hiring remotely within USA & Canada **

About the role
Skills: Figma

At Mighty, we’re working hard at building a computer you’ll never need to upgrade that changes the possibilities of what apps can do. Mighty makes Google Chrome faster and uses 10x less memory by streaming it at extremely low-latency from the cloud.

Only accepting candidates from USA/Canada/Western EU currently.

If you join us, you’ll be an early team member in helping shape:

  1. Our future company culture
  2. Our design practices
  3. People that we hire
  4. The direction & focus of our products

What we're looking for:

  • You will be the second full-time product designer on the team—you'll work directly with Suhail
  • Experienced at talking to users and willing to constantly do so without encouragement
  • Willing to explore product ideas through design and animation before executing on them
  • Willing to throw away ideas if they're not great. Optimistic enough to keep hunting for new ones.
  • Excited to collaborate with everyone on the team: engineers, customer facing folks, etc—you believe inspiration can come from anywhere
  • You have good judgement to push the most impactful ideas forward that will make users happy
  • You don't believe users are our guinea pigs: we ship great products when they're ready and something we might often use ourselves.
  • You have good judgement of when to ship: perfect is the enemy of good
  • You care about details and are excited to keep pushing your work

Skills & Experience

  • Are an expert in either UI, UX, or visual design, but skilled in more disciplines across product design
  • Have 5+ years relevant design experience at a tech, product-driven company
  • Familiar with tools like or similar to Figma, Origami, or Framer
Technology

We write code primarily in C++/JavaScript/TypeScript. Our application is a desktop Electron app where the front-end is in JS while the bits that need to be fast are written in C++.

Here are examples of things we’ve worked on:

  • Figuring out how to improve encoding performance by reducing total time to be less than 8 milliseconds.
  • Capturing mouse/keyboard events to replay them on Linux from macOS.
  • Helping build our custom networking protocol to improve upon congestion for various networking conditions that our users may have.
  • Benchmarking the performance of different models of GPUs to find the best cost/performance ratio to keep costs low
