Introduce us to your team

As Coda's design team, we're tasked with designing a product and brand that allows makers to create—from docs that capture ideas to docs that run whole companies and everything in between. We work across the entire Coda product surface, including shaping document experience, how Coda is used in teams and large organizations, and our cast growing ecosystem.

We're spread out across Seattle, San Francisco and Philadelphia.

What are your team rituals?

As a company, Coda is super thoughtful about rituals and our Design team is too! We have weekly Design Crits, socials - which form the core rituals. But since we have a joint Product + Design team, we also have a weekly meeting to share work and processes.  We have a joint Product and Design team because we’re building an incredibly interconnected product and ecosystem around it. So our weekly get together is critical for building a thoughtful product!

What problem are you solving?

Ultimately, our goal is to re-invent the doc and turn it into something that feels familiar and flexible but with building blocks you can combine to create something powerful.

Why? We believe that the our existing tools have created a divide between software users and software makers, and we'd like to help break that down. We're trying to create a tool that lets anyone solve problems for themselves and for their teams.

What separates us from no-code tools with similar missions is that we believe the best way to achieve this mission at scale is through something the mass market already uses everyday — a document

What type of music does your team listen to?

All over the place! Here's a playlist one of our designers, Hieu, started that we've all added to.

Tell us about your hackathons

We hosts hackathons once a quarter, with the entire company. Sometimes there's a theme, but for the most part, people can jam on whatever they like. Designers often come up with their own concepts and get engineers onboard to form a team. Other times, designers might take a break from designing to do UX Research or some doc making. An incredible number of features and improvements have roots in hackathons, so it's a big part of what we do here.

What advice would you give to people who want to join your team?

We're looking for experienced generalists who can take a feature or product from end to end.  So a bit of everything, mixed with a good amount of humility and collaboration! Still, we think everyone has a superpower and so it's worthwhile for you to think about what superpower you bring to the team.

We also love people who are passionate about making tools for tool makers, so let us know if that's you.
