Who we’re looking for

We are looking for a talented interface designer to lead the repair world into the 21st century.  We're designing a repair experience that is usable and refined. We want to make it so easy to fix things that everyone will want to.

You'll collaborate with our team of engineers, community managers, and tinkerers throughout the design process—from figuring out what to build to crafting mockups and building the user interface. You'll be the main advocate for our users and ensure that the final product surprises and delights them.

Our devs work closely with our designers and depend on assistance with front-end work from time to time, so you’ll need to be prepared. We want you to be passionate about what you create and lead projects from start to finish. You’ll be responsible for thinking out every aspect of our software interaction and creating mockups for each scenario.

What we require

  • Have a design portfolio with links to projects you have worked on
  • 4+ years experience designing interfaces (that you can show us!)
  • UX-centered design
  • Sketch and/or Adobe suite
  • Responsive web design chops

Bonus points

  • Leadership experience
  • Demonstrated experience crafting usable interfaces
  • You’ve done a repair using iFixit guides
  • BA/BS degree in Design (e.g. interaction, graphic, visual communications, product, industrial), HCI, CS, or a related field
  • Knowledge of Git & Github
  • Experience using Zeplin, Affinity Designer, VIM
  • You’ve written articles or have given talks about the industry
  • Prototyping experience with Invision, Pixate, or Framer
