Job Details

Product Designer

GIST is a new Silicon-Valley based e-commerce social mobile app. We launched #1 on ProductHunt and we’re just getting started! GIST is in stealth-mode and interest is growing through word-of-mouth. You will be getting in on the ground floor to help build a new business. You will be working with a world-class team: We’re a group of experienced technology leaders and our Company is backed by giants of the retail and technology industry (Apple, Tesla, Notion, Levi’s, Google, and Triller).

We are looking for a talented and motivated Product Designer to join our team at GIST.  

You should welcome the prospect of crafting designs that are beautiful yet functional, user-centric and executable. You want to put our best foot forward because we are building a consumer-facing social app and our users expect the best. 

We are a small team so you won’t be just a cog in the machine- you will be the main designer for the app. We want you to love scalable solutions, and actively be part of the creative process of making the company more scalable. Our team is remote and we do team meetings through Zoom and communicate regularly using video chat and Slack.

We love people who bring value beyond your work, who care about ideas, concepts and want their voice to be heard. Due to COVID, this position is currently remote. Working hours should coincide well with Pacific time zone.
