Senior Visual Designer
SoundHound Inc. turns sound into understanding and actionable meaning.
We believe in enabling humans to interact with the things around them in the same way we interact with each other: by speaking naturally to mobile phones, cars, TVs, music speakers, coffee machines, and every other part of the emerging 'connected' world. Our latest product, Hound, leverages our Speech-to-Meaning technology to showcase a ground-breaking smartphone experience. Our SoundHound product applies our technology to music, enabling people to discover, explore, and share the music around them, and even find the name of that song stuck in their heads by singing or humming. And through the Houndify platform, we empower developers to be part of the speech-to-meaning revolution.
Mission: Houndify everything.
We offer a competitive salary, SoundHound stock options, unique camaraderie, catered lunches, and the opportunity to call a company that’s simultaneously changing the way we discover music AND interact with machines, home. Yep, it's that cool.
As a Senior Visual Designer you’ll have an opportunity to be on the cutting-edge of designing for Voice UI and AI across mobile and in-car experiences. Part of your responsibility will be to help define and maintain the SoundHound Design System which touches all of our products and services. You’ll help support the product design team by delivering pixel-perfect assets and working closely with the engineering and QA teams to ensure a high degree of quality within the app.
