Visual UI designer // Contentful

June 15, 2017
Contentful is on the lookout for a talented Visual UI Designer to join our UX Design and Research team. This role will be an essential and valued position for creating an impact raising the visual quality and utility of our product and services.

Contentful is a content management developer platform that enables web and mobile developers to manage, integrate, and deliver digital content to any kind of device or service that can connect to an API – be it smart cars, VR, mobile, web, digital signage, or any new platform. We solve the complexities of content management for tens of thousands web and mobile developers, some independent and many working at enterprise customers that include Jack-in-the-box, Petsmart, Specialized, and Urban Outfitters.

We’re a fun team of over 100 people from 36 nations with offices in Berlin and San Francisco, backed by top VCs (Benchmark, Trinity, Balderton, Point Nine), growing at an amazing pace, and looking for more amazing individuals to join our team!


You will become the eighth member of our close-knit team and take responsibility of one of our User Experience segments. Working closely with designers, copywriters, engineers, product managers and business people, you will play an essential part in evolving concrete user needs into loveable solutions.

Through this, you will be exposed to all of the elements of our Product Design Process and will get the chance to both participate in research and present work to our customers.


Our focus for 2017/18 is on enhancing the usability, utility and aesthetic quality of our Authoring application and Developer Experience. Since Contentful is not an ordinary CMS and is used by a wide variety of personas such as editors, writers, developers and translators, your design work here will be stimulating, rich and intellectually challenging.

This is a position for someone who wants to develop their practice, but who also has experience to share with us.

We’re a collaborative, empathic team, experimenting and working fast.
