Product Designer

Job description

Timber is looking for our first full-time designer to help build incredible tools for developers and software teams. Your goal will be to translate customer insights into clean, consistent, and crisp interfaces that inspire delight and productivity.

 

More about you

Our ideal candidate for this role should have a background in design, experience working with engineering teams, and a history of bringing well-crafted designs to production. You appreciate a good design system and are happy to jump between Sketch, Illustrator and some HTML/CSS when needed. You understand the difference between a design that looks good on dribbble and one that is effective in the real-world. You like to learn, and have no problem breaking down complex solutions into easy to understand interfaces that look and feel great.

 

Highlights of the role

 

At Timber we care deeply about design, it’s at the core of everything we do from our interfaces to our command line software (CLIs). As an early member of the team, you’ll have a profound impact on how that design thinking translates into real world products that developers love. You’ll work closely with our product and engineering teams to help us excite, involve and delight customers. You’ll get to experiment with cutting edge design systems and hone your skills with a tight-knit, fast-paced team.
