  • prioritize inclusion of diverse perspectives, making sure that it is built into our design process, feature selection, interfaces and documentation

 Requirements:

  • at least three years of experience leading design on a digital product
  • experience building design systems and visual languages
  • a commitment to building an inclusive and thoughtful workplace
  • attention to detail and a willingness to take time to think things through and do them the right way
  • excellent communication, organization, and prioritization skills

 We’d be particularly delighted to hire someone who:

  • has designed for users with low bandwidth and limited connectivity
  • has designed a new product from the ground up
  • has internationalized digital products
  • cares deeply about accessibility
  • can write CSS and SASS
  • speaks, reads and writes two or more human languages

We don’t require:

  • experience leading a team
  • prior remote work experience

Location

The position is remote, and you’ll work with a team spread out across time zones. You can work from a location of your choice, and should be available for work from 12-5pm Eastern Time.

You should apply

Our users come from all kinds of communities, and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our organization stronger in delivering social impact. We encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including people of color, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.

We know there are great candidates who might not check all of these boxes or who possess important skills we haven’t thought of. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.

An important part of every application is a cover letter describing why this position and our mission particularly resonated with you.
