Design at Privy

Design at Privy is not just about pixel-pushing or generating assets for engineers. Design is about crafting intuitive product experiences. This is about UX, not just UI. The best ideas, most elegant software abstractions, most powerful developer tools can all be ignored if they are not expressed in a way that touches users... Weโ€™ve got a long way to go in Web3.
Product Design is a core discipline at Privy and the main way in which we communicate our values to developers and enable them to make better choices for their users. By making privacy tradeoffs tangible to developers and their users, you can help lay the foundations for a private and sovereign Web.
At Privy, you will be working to craft a new type of developer experience. We believe that usability and delight must never be sacrificed in the name of correctness; we believe that good interfaces and good defaults can change the status quo in technology; and we believe that design is not just a flourish that comes at the end of a release, but rather an integral part of product creation end-to-end.
Come build with us.
