Job Description

Are you an experienced designer who enjoys working in a small team environment with lots of responsibility across multiple areas and having a huge impact on how users experience an entire brand through all its products?

We are building a movement around creating a more usable, scalable blockchain which unites not just developers but also voices across disciplines like design, UX and product. Your voice is both the strongest representative of design internally but also the bridge between the mission of our team and the experience of everyone who ultimately interacts with our products, education materials and more.

More concretely, as the senior designer at NEAR, you own the creation and maintenance of a professional, usable and ultimately delightful design experience across everything we create or build. That includes the core web property, marketing assets, educational materials, developer-facing tooling and consumer facing mobile applications.

This is a high-ownership position and you will need to be comfortable operating across a wide range of disciplines. The core function is very UX-focused as you take on the role of the user’s voice while leading the branding and product design process.
