Clay is composed of professionals with experience and passion for content creation, design, or mobile engineering. Together, we own every part of the app publishing process, from User Interface Research to Marketing. And, thanks to this team, Clay grew to have thousands of downloads per day, every single day!

We are currently 18 people working full-time on Clay...but we want to increase the size of the team to keep up with the increase in demand for Clay. Are you up for the challenge?

The role

The success of Clay lies in creating all of the app's stunning content and high-performing code in-house. For each bi-weekly release, the Product team works tirelessly to understand our users' evolving needs, design new features, and optimize our product's user experience/interface (UX/UI). To keep up with this exciting challenge, we are looking to grow our Product team—currently composed of one of our founders, a Product Manager, and two Product Designers.

Starting to work on multiple apps in parallel, has lead to a sizable increase in our Product Design needs. This growth is why we want to welcome a seasoned designer with experience in mobile UI design who can aid our expansion. As part of the Product team, this person will work hand-in-hand with our founder and Product Manager to define and own our products' UI and UX.

  • Designing and delivering key design system artifacts, including but not limited to components, foundational styles, and patterns for our Figma libraries.
  • Researching the needs of our users and distilling the findings into realizable product updates.
  • Supporting an efficient workflow by implementing and improving processes.
  • Being the connective tissue between product management, engineering, user research, and others to construct and grow the design system, own the design execution and measure ongoing improvements.

To apply for this role, you should have

  • 3+ years of professional experience as a Product, UX, or UI designer.
  • 2+ years of professional experience working on customer-facing products, preferably mobile design.
  • Solid knowledge of the standard tools and processes used by Product Design teams in the mobile world.
  • Experience collaborating with Engineering, Product, and Marketing teams as part of the product development lifecycle process.

  • The latest Apple hardware (Mac, iPhone, and anything else you might need)
  • 1-month vacation per year + untracked time off if you need more
