About the role

Play a pivotal role in Railway's developer experience, redefining the future of software infrastructure.

Collaborate closely with product, support, and engineering to scope, define, design, and ship high-quality features.

Contribute to the overall design direction of the product, leveraging your creativity and problem-solving skills to address complex design challenges and deliver elegant solutions.

Balance user needs, business goals, and technical constraints of design solutions, ensuring that Railway remains user-friendly, scalable, and reliable.

Define workflows, prototypes, and visual design of your projects.

Work in an ambiguous environment to create levers for design excellence, using process sparingly but effectively.

Contribute to the design culture within the company.


About you

You have a strong portfolio showcasing your skills in user interface design, interaction design, and visual design. Your portfolio demonstrates your ability to solve complex design problems and showcases your attention to detail.

You care about creating good products, understand what makes a good experience, and constantly think of improvement opportunities for the products you use.

You care about business needs, implications, and the practicality of your solutions and work to deliver clear, intuitive, and appealing human interfaces.

You are a creative thinker who can push the boundaries of design while ensuring a balance between user needs, business goals, and technical constraints.

You feel comfortable designing, illustrating, iterating, and prototyping in Figma, but always look for new tools to open new possibilities (Blender, Spline, Rive, shaders, etc.).

You have experience balancing trade-offs while implementing a feature to ship it on time without compromising the long-term product vision.

You have experience effectively collaborating with cross-functional teams to deliver high-quality designs within project timelines.

You have excellent communication skills and can articulate design decisions and rationale effectively to stakeholders and team members.

We value and love to work with diverse persons from all backgrounds


Things to know

For better or worse, we're a startup; our team dynamics are different from companies of different sizes and stages.

  • We're distributed ALL across the globe, and that's only going to be more and more distributed. As a result, stuff is ALWAYS happening.
  • We do NOT expect you to work all the time, but you'll have to be diligent about your boundaries because the end of your day may overlap with the start of someone else's.
  • We're a small team, with high ownership, who are not only passionate about what we do, but seek to be exceptional as well. At the time of writing we're 21, serving hundreds of thousands of users. There's a lot of stuff going on, and a lot of ambiguity.
  • We want you to own it. We believe that ownership is a key to growth, and part of that growth is not only being able to make the choices, but owning the success, or failure, that comes with those choices.
