Creative Developer

Do you know what Yat is?

If you don’t, then how did you find your way here? (we’re beyond excited you’re here)

So first, a brief rundown to either get you up to speed or give you a little more info about what we’re all about at Yat. First off, we love our community (Yat🤝our community). We have a passionate group of creators who pour their time and energy into using Yats as a vehicle for self-expression (think of it as hieroglyphics for the modern age). They create emoji internet identities that they can use across every chat app, social network, metaverse (and beyond), and that we consider beautiful works of art with profound messages. 

It’s really about connecting to the universal language of visual representation in a whole new way, one that celebrates individuals, community, and everyone’s right to privacy in the digital realm. We don’t want to say we’re changing the world, but yeah, we are. 

We also happen to be one of the fastest-growing consumer products of all time (👑 us) and as such needs an incredibly talented team dedicated to making sure it’s continued 🚀from here on out. 

Now for a bit of background. Yat is the brainchild of Tari Labs, a digital assets-focused blockchain organization that believes privacy on the internet should be pervasive and available to all, co-founded by Naveen Jain (who also founded Sparkart). And in case you’re worried about funding (stability), Yat is backed by Blockchain Capital, Pantera Capital, Multicoin Capital, Trinity Ventures, Redpoint Ventures, Canaan Partners, and Slow Ventures (as well as some of the best investors in the world).

And who are you? Well, we’re hoping you’re someone who takes the exceptional and exceeds it, who rolls up their sleeves and gets their hands dirty, and who wants to take a step outside the ordinary to create a world that’s more beautiful, fun, and privacy-oriented. 

As the Senior UX Developer, you will work with our design and front-end teams to build gorgeous user experiences.

Have a look at our Yat creator dashboard. Notice the dozens of user delights. The glow changes behind the yat as the rhythm score changes. The checkout and close buttons playfully interact with the mouse cursor. The input field handles text, emojis, and graphics seamlessly and intuitively. If you dig in a bit further, have a look at the Yat Visualiser.
