Who we are looking for

This opportunity is ideal for a mid to senior level designer who wants to have a direct impact over our entire product, as our first and only UX/I designer - whilst working remotely!

So far, we have been working with great freelance designers, but the time has come for us to bring on our first full-time, in-house designer.

Kate (Product Owner), in our Warsaw office, sitting on her favourite chair!

You can meet our team here. Alex (CEO) and client delivery team is in London; Product & Marketing team in Poland and operations team remotely across USA, Romania, Ukraine and Serbia.


Salary transparency

We believe in being transparent with salaries right for the start. For this role, our budget is $2100 to $3150 USD per month. The exact salary offer will be made based on your level of experience.

You will need to send us an invoice at the end of each month and you will be responsible for paying your own taxes.

Application process

Stage 1: After CV review, we will invite candidates to have informal phone conversations with us. We may also invite you to an in-person conversation if you are based in Warsaw.

Stage 2: We will then invite up to 10 candidates to an in-person interview, and demo the product to you live.

Stage 3: Out of the 10 candidates, we will invite around 3 candidates to conduct a paid pilot project (5-10hr long). You will then present this project to us.

Stage 4: We will conduct a more formal, longer interview with final round candidates.

This might seem like a lot of steps but we move fast. We expect the successful candidate to get their offer ~20 days from first interview.

We are looking for someone who can start full-time ideally no later than September 2019.

If you’re interested, we’d love to see your application! No cover letter needed - just answer our application questions in appropriate detail.
