Join us to build and safely deploy aligned, superhuman AI. For decades, technology was “just a tool.” Soon, it will be a partner. We are building an AI pair programmer that feels like a full colleague inside your computer - capable, conversational, and reliable across domains. If this isn't AGI, then what is? Join us if you want to build and safely deploy aligned AGI in products that matter.

The little details make the big picture. We are looking to hire a Principal Product Designer with the ambition to go far beyond "good enough".

As a Principal Product Designer, you will talk to users, develop user experience strategy and design ​​and take ownership of the little details that take a product from good to great. The role is hands-on; we're looking for someone who loves their craft.

Things that might make you a good fit

  • 2y+ experience hands-on UI/UX or product at a startup

  • High-energy: you love what you do

  • Ambition: you want to make something great

  • Know some coding: our users are software engineers, so it helps if you have been one too.

  • Creative: you have many ideas and you love bringing them up

Magic's culture

  • Integrity. Words and actions should be aligned.

  • Hands-on. Most of us have previously led engineering teams. At Magic, there are no managers. We all spend the vast majority of our time on engineering. If you want to solve hard problems, Magic is the right place for you.

  • Teamwork. We move as one team, not N individuals.

  • Focus. Ethically deploy AGI. Everything else is noise.

  • Quality. We have high standards for ourselves and our products. Magic should feel like magic.

Benefits and perks

  • Benchmark-based compensation in the 75th or 90th percentile, including base salary, equity, and benefits

  • Flexible working hours

  • In-person (London, SF, NYC, or Vienna) or remote

  • A small, fast-paced, highly focused team

About Magic

Magic is a public benefit corporation dedicated to building and safely deploying aligned, superhuman AGI.


What's your motivation?

Automation has led humanity from subsistence farming to becoming a globally connected society. AGI is the ultimate chapter of the story of human tool-building, presenting the potential to decouple productivity and ingenuity from human labor. What if the last 50 years of technological progress happened in 2 days? We want to make this a possibility.


We've raised $28M from tier 1 investors.

How do we balance deploying the technology today with ambitions for AGI?

We think deploying AI within the right interfaces is just as important as the technology itself. Building an AI pair programmer helps us do both at the same time. We aim to launch gradually improving AI assistants while pursuing work on what will ultimately become AGI.

Do you train your own models?


Do you care about the product?

It's funny that this is an FAQ, but many AI companies neglect UX and focus only on their model. Yes, we care.

Can I work from anywhere?

We welcome applications from anyone around the world. We'll look at visa requirements case by case.

I don't meet all the criteria, should I still apply?

If you feel you have something to contribute to the mission and you're a high-energy person, absolutely. We make exceptions for exceptional people.
