Submittable is a cloud-based submission management platform that makes it easy to accept, review, and make decisions on any kind of digital content. Founded in 2010, the company is based in Missoula, Montana, with a satellite office in New York City. We have over two million users and 10,000 clients, including Airbnb, The Kennedy Center, Harvard, NPR, TechCrunch, and 300+ universities. We're backed by True Ventures, Next Frontier Capital, The Knight Foundation, StartFund, 77Ventures, Y Combinator, and a few other amazing investors.
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.

You will be responsible for meeting and exceeding new and existing business quotas. You will lead a team of Sales and Business Development managers to generate pipeline and close deals. As the organizational leader, you will deliver ongoing mentoring in both group and individual settings, set the tone, and drive for results. You will cultivate a team culture aligned to Submittable’s core values with a focus on sincerity, community, out-of-the-box thinking, and general excellence.

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:

  • Empathy
  • Obsessiveness to detail
  • Curiosity
  • HTML/CSS/Javascript experience are a plus, but we're generally not looking for a programmer with design skills. (Although we're always ready to be surprised.)
  • 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.
