🖖 Who We Are
Prospr is helping frontline employees (think baristas, gym trainers, hair stylists, nurses, and waiters) keep in touch, manage their schedules, track workplace issues, and stay on top of training all while becoming more connected members of their teams. We’re Slack, Trello, JIRA, Google Drive, Confluence and more for people who don’t work behind a desk.
We’ve just closed a $3.2M Series Seed led by Bonfire Ventures, Quiet Capital and Animo and are already trusted by well-known international brands including Dunkin Donuts, 1-800-GOT-JUNK and New York Sports Clubs (NYSC)
Our team is collaborative, positive, curious, and engaged. We think fast, laugh often, and are looking for like-minded people to join us in our mission to empower frontline workers worldwide.
😬 What Awaits
We’ve gotten impressively far on a dream and a badass MVP. Now we need you to help us turn this into robust, well-designed, stable and scalable enterprise-grade software. You’ll use your passion for beautiful, efficient, and idiomatic design, your curiosity and your tendency toward obsessiveness to produce a product that you’re proud of. When you’re not designing, you’ll be sharing your hobbies, interests and knowledge with the rest of us – contributing to an environment that’s always buzzing with intellectual curiosity and excitement.
You will be more than just another designer – you’ll be a founding employee. You’ll play a defining part in shaping the culture and future of Prospr. This is a rare opportunity to build the company you want to work for from the ground up. We’re expanding from a couple of founders, to a full-fledged tech team by the end of 2021. If you want a truly fast-paced startup experience, where every person plays a critical role, this adventure is for you.
👩💻 The Role
We’re looking for an experienced and self-directed UX/UI designer for the Prospr mobile and web applications. As the first and leading member of our creative team, you’ll be responsible for leveraging your experience with user-centered design principles to craft a creative vision for Prospr, and then work with product management and engineering teams to execute on that vision. You will use your expertise to turn our MVP into a user-friendly, visually inspired, design masterpiece. You’ll help us rationalize existing design decisions, turning them into well-principled, tested and consistent elements across web and mobile. The ideal candidate is a human-centered designer with excellent visual communication skills and a particular passion for design systems.
This role offers an incredible amount of growth potential as it not only reports directly to the
CTO, but also requires a significant amount of collaboration with the product, engineering, and
marketing teams. In addition to product design, you’ll also need to spend about 10% of your
time leading visual design of assets for marketing and sales with the aid of a freelancer of your choosing. Being our first design hire, you’ll have the rare opportunity to influence the way we think about design as an organization.
