Description

I'm looking for an ambitious founding product designer to join me in Miami on a mission to grow the $2.5T global fashion economy. You’ll be employee #2 and design our brand, design systems, and beautiful apps for the world’s 2nd most important industry. You’ll get a salary, founding employee stock with massive upside, and a chance to travel & see the world. More detail here.

About us

Our mission is to grow the global fashion economy and connect the world's cultures. Our vision is to connect the industry from yarn to consumer through one single platform. We'll build several beautiful software applications for fashion brands & suppliers to help production countries grow, enable the next 100,000 brands to come to life and build a more sustainable world.

This is a design-first startup building for an industry starved of beautiful, usable software. You’ll have a front-row seat working alongside a mission-driven founder with fashion industry expertise, insider knowledge & relationships.

About the founding designer role

You'll design our brand, design systems, and all customer-facing and internal apps. As founder, I've built hundreds of customer relationships and defined the 1st product, so you'll hit the ground running on day one. We'll build with customers, move quickly, and ship often. This role will be hard and require lots of travel. But know that your work will have a massive global impact. The products you build will touch millions of businesses, creators, and workers.

What's in this for you

  • Salary and health benefits + significant founding employee STOCK (not options) with massive upside in an ambitious long-term company

  • Redefine the industry that dresses humanity and supports 400M jobs, 500k suppliers in 150 countries, and 1M+ brands

  • Work with a mission-driven founder and a stellar global team, and help shape the company’s culture for those that come after you

  • Travel and see the world

What I'm looking for in a founding designer

  • Generalist, T-shaped product designer with acuity across all pillars from UX research to Visual Design

  • Confident, resilient thought partner, excited to take on all facets of design at a startup

  • First-principles problem solver and systems thinker

  • Curious world citizen with empathy for other cultures

  • Based in Miami or open to moving, and excited to collaborate in person daily to move fast

Criteria

  • 2+ years of commercial design experience, working directly w/ engineers as the sole or lead designer

  • 2+ case studies of built software design work, detailing your approach and how you made decisions
