    About CodeLeap

    CodeLeap’s mission is to help ambitious entrepreneurs invent, build and scale software products. We currently do it in domains as diverse as education and specialised med-tech. Most of our projects start from scratch - an empty .js file or a whiteboard - and it is up to the creativity and technical talent of our team to come up with a great solution.

    We believe in maximising the freedom of our team members. This means not only location independence and flexible hours, but also freedom to take ownership of projects, and to organise your work in a way that best supports your strengths. Besides freedom, we also believe in taking responsibility. All of us care deeply about building products that exceed the expectations of our clients and their users, and we are not afraid of working hard when it matters.

    CodeLeap is not only a team of people with a passion for technology, we are proper geeks. As soon as we received our first client payment, we did the most reasonable thing we could think of: we got an Oculus. Outside of work, each of us enjoys being creative and curious - building software tools, DIY robots, playing musical instruments or weird video games.

    If this sounds like the team you’d like to join, reach out! We are a young, early stage business, and you could play a very meaningful role in shaping our future. Let’s build the best software company in the world together!

    We offer

    • Competitive pay - we believe in fair compensation for great work and our ambition is to find and keep talented people for many years to come.

    • Location independence - while CodeLeap was started in London, modern technology enables fully remote work.

    • Responsibility and freedom - you won’t be asked to put cover sheets on TPS reports.

    Requirements

    • Effective learner - you are capable of quickly gaining a sufficient understanding of the specialised contexts and constraints of each project and its domain.

    • User empathy - you listen deeply and always thoughtfully consider the point of view of our client and their users.

    • Capable of taking ownership of projects - once we agree on a high level goal, we expect you to be reasonable and thoughtful in creating the right solution.

    • Excellent understanding of web and mobile UI - you care about delivering work that not only looks pleasing, but is also user-friendly and accessible on each target platform.

    • Designing custom art and animations - you have an ability to make a software product feel special and unique.

    • Competence with common design tools - we use Adobe XD, some of our clients may prefer Sketch.

    • Fluent written and spoken English - our primary natural language.

    Practicalities

    At our current stage we prefer working on a contract basis. As most of our clients are UK based, we also prefer if your typical work hours overlap with the UK time zone.

    As a Senior Product Designer, you will own the strategy and production of creative assets for FutureFuel.io to support the Product and Sales teams. As part of a Series A start-up, you will be challenged to wear multiple hats in a fast-paced, dynamic role that includes critical responsibilities in UI design, sales/marketing assets, and brand. We are looking for someone to lead our visual and brand strategy, elevate the product, and help us build inspiring and engaging first impressions and experiences with our customers, users, and key stakeholders.

    As a creative leader, you are thrilled to chase the answers to the most challenging questions in design and you are constantly seeking ways that would make a human experience feel more intuitive, inclusive, accessible, fun, and delightful. You see the job title as just a starting point and you naturally feel empowered to solve problems without being asked, but you also value being a team member that seeks collaboration over siloed decision-making. You are not afraid to lead and are excited by the opportunity to contribute new ideas and spearhead new strategies to help us build and grow our global team and company. You will report to the VP of Product and work with a growing team of full-time and contracted resources across design, UX, engineering, operations, and sales.

    Does this sound like you? 

    • You have fierce attention to detail. You embrace ambiguity, thrive in the agile environment of a start-up, and are excited about building systems and processes from the ground up.

    • You can dive deep into the micro of how products, websites, processes, and assets get designed and built, while also maintaining the ability to zoom out into the macro and provide the vision for how our visual design and brand identity should iterate into an influential powerhouse for innovation, social impact, and market-leading UX.

    • You are seeking to help build digital experiences that won't settle for any standard less than inspiring love and admiration by people, for people. You are naturally curious, eager to explore uncharted territory, and diligent in balancing competing opportunities and constraints.

    • You seek growth through constant feedback loops and constructive critique. You naturally challenge yourself and others to achieve increasingly complex challenges and key results over time.

    As a member of the FutureFuel family, we are looking for someone who is proud to be a part of a mission-driven organization that exists to CRUSH student debt. 

    Key Responsibilities: 

    • Translate product requirements, user & customer needs, technical requirements into designs that are visually enticing, easy to use, and emotionally engaging. 

    • Collect feedback and best-case examples from the team and collaborate cross-functionally to guide the team in the direction, style, brand and methodology. 

    • Generate clear ideas, concepts, creative insights and provide project oversight on visual assets from beginning to end. 

    • Interpret storyboards, mockups, and flow charts to help translate into a visual design strategy that iterates from low-fi to high-fi. 

    • Review, refine, and approve design assets through a system of design quality assurance and validation. 

    • Spearhead how design will work at FutureFuel with a strong but flexible POV that helps the team determine how to get the job done with confidence and clarity. 

    • Work collaboratively with other designers and cross-functionally to ensure a consistent, integrated brand perception and user-experience. 

    • Be a design evangelist; you naturally stay tuned into the latest design standards, guidelines, and discussions in the visual design field and seek to bring ideas from the outside in to fortify our team. 

    • Work closely with the product and engineering teams to ensure that design specifications are implemented and reflect design intent. 

    • Create and maintain a library of visual assets (sales decks, one-pagers, digital media, etc.) for our Sales team. 

    • Translate customer requirements and sales needs into designs that capture our brand identity and articulate the opportunity we are offering. 

    • Contribute to FutureFuel.io’s knowledge base. 

    • Qualifications: 

    • A minimum of four years of professional experience in designing brand identities, grid systems, editorial layouts and applications for web, desktop and mobile. 

    • The ability to refine other people’s ideas and come up with new ones to create a highly designed visual experience. 

    • Well organized, responsible and dedicated, with the ability to work on multiple projects and deliver refined design in a short time. 

    • Self-learning, able to learn new tools quickly and work in a fast evolving environment. 

    • Experience integrating user research into product design and design practices. 

    • Proven ability delivering high quality designs to customers. 

    • Proficient in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign and Sketch. 

    • Expert level skills in Photoshop, Invision, UXPin and other relevant design tools.

  • We are a diverse team from around the world, on a mission to make DuckDuckGo the company people trust most with their online privacy, and we want your help!

    Join our team as a Brand Design Lead, who is up for the challenge to lead and transform the DuckDuckGo brand experience across all of our products. 

    As part of our growing Design Team, you will be collaborating with team members at all levels to shape how we communicate our brand throughout the entire experience — from marketing to our search engine and privacy tools. You will lead the entire design process of your projects, from ideation to execution. You will have a voice in all product decisions, both big and small, and an opportunity to leverage our approach to design (which you can read more about at: https://spreadprivacy.com/ethical-by-design/).

    We are fully remote and seek to empower our team to be self-directed and self-motivated in their projects. If that seems awesome and you like the idea of our core values -- build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction -- you'll fit right in!

    What you will do:

    • Champion the evolution of our brand language, that speaks to our mission and creates a strong and recognizable brand.

    • Lead and advise projects showcasing our brand and retaining a consistent brand message across multiple platforms: product, print, partner communication, events, advertising, and soft goods.

    • Define how our brand is applied throughout both Marketing and Product in our design system.

    • Mentor and provide creative direction to others, raising understanding of design's role across the organization.

    • Carry ideas forward with discretion and little direction.

    • Collaborate cross-functionally to create impactful work that is informed by data and user feedback.

    • Engage in critique, humbly defending your work, and being transparent with your process.

    What we are looking for:

    • Demonstrable strengths and hands-on experience in brand design, typography, color, and composition, having led the branding efforts for at least one large software or digital product.

    • Proficiency with current industry design tools needed to carry out brand work.

    • Prior experience in leadership level design positions and willingness to mentor other designers.

    • Ability to provide creative direction and lead difficult brand conversations with discretion and little direction.

    • Understanding of design systems and their impact across product and marketing.

    • Ability to collaborate in defining and evolving brand messaging, actively representing the brand voice and vision.

    • Ability to write creative briefs that define and communicate project goals with stakeholders.

    • Effective project management ability, paired with exceptional communication skills.

    • Experience working with qualitative user research.

    Other things to know:

    • While we leverage specific job titles for hiring purposes, we do not use them internally. Instead, we follow our own professional levels, with expectations for each level clearly defined across several dimensions.

    • We are a small, remote team distributed across time zones, and we rely on a variety of communication tools throughout the day.

    • Sometimes we meet up! Expect to travel at least two times a year: once for our all-hands meetup and again for a team retreat (each ~4-5 days).

    • We believe in a focused approach to collaboration, where individual team members work on a single top priority at a time, each supporting larger, company-wide objectives. This philosophy serves to impact our vision to raise the standard of trust online.

    • Our work philosophy centers on empowered project management. All team members have opportunities to run projects.

    • Transparency supports individual and team success at DuckDuckGo. We encourage everyone to participate in areas of interest throughout the company. Anyone and everyone can (and should) ask questions and offer feedback about our products and internal projects.

    • We aim to exemplify our values (build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction) in everything we do.

    • While this is a full-time job, we offer a flexible work arrangement with no core hours, expecting an average commitment of 40 hours per week.

    • We support professional development of our team members through career advisory and a learning stipend, reinforcing our culture of growth and skill-building.

    DuckDuckGo does not work with any recruiting agencies or services. Instead, we work with each candidate one-on-one throughout a unique hiring process that we've built to reflect our company culture.

    DuckDuckGo provides equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment, and prohibits discrimination and harassment of any type without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability status, genetics, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local laws.
