Beam is disrupting a $7.5 billion compliance software market.

We are looking for our first Product Designer who will be a generalist and play a critical role in all aspects of the design process of our web-based product. You will be part of the R&D team working closely with front-end and product to design and deliver our differentiating Beam UI/UX by striking a balance between power and ease of use. We believe that part of our competitive advantage is in visually standing out, way beyond just simple tabular data.
