UI/UX Designer

  • New York
  • Full-time

We are hiring a UI/UX Designer for a new, purpose-driven startup based in NYC.

We are in stealth mode inventing a new kind of data infrastructure, a new way of seeing the world, and a more responsible, ethical model of a tech company. We are backed by top-tier VCs in Silicon Valley and New York and leading angel investors, and founded by the former VP Data at Spotify.

We care deeply about design. Our founder collaborated on Design and the Elastic Mind at MoMA, founded Seed Magazine, served on the Design & Innovation Council of the World Economic Forum, and serves on the Advisory Council of Broken Nature, the XXII Triennale.

We believe in the power of small, autonomous, interdisciplinary, and highly diverse teams; in agile development; and in leading with values, first principles, and clear high-level priorities backed by data.​

We provide a fun and stimulating work environment (in Jean-Michel Basquiat's former studio!), flexible hours and remote work, and competitive benefits. We believe in cultivating a growth mindset for our team — always learning, improving, being challenged, and having opportunities for professional and personal development.
