What we need from you
Until now, our design efforts have been led by our head of product, but it's time to separate the design into a dedicated role. As our first Product Designer, you will work closely with our head of product and a team of world-class engineers to build the best blockchain user experience the world has yet to see.
You’ll get to:
Work on a team where you always feel like the dumbest person in the room
Build out totally new product experiences from scratch
Iterate rapidly with immediate user feedback
Being able to define a unique brand and style guide from scratch
If any of that sounds exciting to you, then we would love to talk to you!
