About Blockspring:

Blockspring is the single hub to build, share, and discover tools and services.

About the job:


We're looking for a scrappy Product Designer to make the world's code accessible and useful for everyone.

Your day-job won't be to restyle buttons and take orders from a manager. You'll be creating unique interactions, talking with users, making critical product decisions, and be actively involved in company vision, hiring, and messaging. As one of our first employees, you will grow fast as a designer, as a leader, and as an entrepreneur.

Here's our major design problem: how do you build an experience that works for both programmers and end-users? The Blockspring platform sits in between those two worlds. It's not an easy problem, but it's quite exciting.

What about us? We are 3 full-stack devs. We've known each other for the past 7-10 years. We solve big problems and are funded to do so by Y Combinator along with the best angel and VC investors in the world. We share a wonderful office with another YC company in SOMA, San Francisco, and we also hang out at 1871 in Chicago.

When we talk, please have a Dribbble, GitHub, or portfolio ready to discuss. We'll let you know asap if there's a good fit. If your work is great but you're not a fit for any reason, we're happy to forward your resume along our network.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR:

    • You have examples showing off your skills in product design, interaction design (especially!), and visual design for the web.
    • You love making things beautiful, and have a strong understanding of composition, balance, symmetry, and white space.
    • Typography, grids, motion, and color? That's no big deal for you.
    • You have a proficiency in CSS and HTML.
    • You can distill complicated problems into simple and elegant solutions.
    • You understand what makes experiences good or bad.
    • You can laugh.

IT WOULD BE HELPFUL TO HAVE:

    • Knowledge of languages like JavaScript and Ruby.
    • Experience working with user research and data to inform decisions.
    • Experience using Blockspring.

**For those that are absolutely amazing, remote is a possibility.**
