Submittable is always looking for inspiring and innovative people who want to be a part of the future of publishing.Submittable (YCombinator S12) is profitable and has over 9000 clients including Harvard, NPR, TechCrunch, and 300+ universities. We're backed by The Knight Foundation, StartFund, 77Ventures, and a few other amazing investors. We're based in Missoula, Montana with a satellite office in NYC. Moving to Missoula isn't required, but all offers include a season pass to Snowbowl which is like skiing in 1977. Work is optional on any day there's over 8 inches of new powder.
More than degrees or particular skill sets, we're looking for obsessive, self-motivated people who have done one or two things in their lives that most people would consider exceptional or very interesting. As a product used globally, we're very motivated to hire team members who are representative of different and diverse backgrounds and experiences, including but not limited to diversity of ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, culture, and socioeconomics.
Description: We're looking for a Senior UX/UI designer to join our design team.
You would be responsible for every aspect of our platform that is used or seen by people. You must be obsessively detail-oriented, empathetic, and have a unique aesthetic.
You won't be starting from scratch. To be successful, you'll have to be enthusiastic about our existing UX and continuing to grow it.
You'll also have to be comfortable continuously iterating within our team and from feedback by people using Submittable.
Experience/Skills We Look For:
- Obsessiveness to detail
- Experience designing for successful SaaS or Consumer platforms.
- Ideally an art, design, or architecture background
Submittable is based in Missoula, Montana which is routinely ranked one of the Most Livable Cities in the US. Our office is 1 block from surfing, 7 miles from skiing, and 3 miles from the Bitterroot Wilderness. Housing costs 1/3 that of NYC and SF. We're the only YCombinator company to ever come out of Montana. We have over 9000 clients in over 63 countries including CBS, MIT, The New Yorker, The LA Times, and more. As a product used globally, we're very motivated to hire team members who are representative of different and diverse backgrounds. We're profitable and venture-backed.
All offers include a season pass to Snowbowl (it's amazing, like skiing in 1977). Work is optional on any day with over 8 inches of fresh powder.
The software you design will be used by over a million people every month.
In general, we seek talented and self-motivated people in any discipline who strive to make useful things for millions of people. We particularly value people who don't fit the majority of existing job descriptions but are obsessive about what they do. If possible, please include specifics on how you'll improve our company or products. Send resumes that make us jealous.
(Note: You can also submit music or artwork in an MP3, PNG, or JPG if that best represents your talents.)
