About the Design team at Gorgias

Currently, Gorgias Design team has 6 designers and we're excited to welcome 3 more soon. Our designers are based in various time zones, including Paris, New York, LA, and the UK. While each designer primarily focuses on their respective product team, closely collaborating with PMs and engineers, we also make sure to prioritize a strong connection within the Design team as a whole.

We have regular meetings such as Design Ops Weekly and Design Critiques, and we're continuously experimenting with new methods of asynchronous collaboration. This helps us to ensure consistency in our work and to foster mutual support and mentorship among all team members.
