We are Invisible’s Technologies Team. We solve problems at scale so they never happen again. At our best, we solve problems before they happen. How?

We Believe That

  • Invisible is a world-changing company and the Technologies Team is responsible for creating the systems that will launch Invisible into the stratosphere

  • Exponential gains from systems > Short term linear work > Systems for systems sake

  • Consistent feedback is key - we are addicted to learning and getting better

  • What one of us knows, all of us should know

  • Every new mistake is a learning opportunity

Because of these beliefs, we’ve built a team where

  • Distributed approaches and centralized intelligence merge. Each teammate is constantly innovating and trying something new. Every mistake is prevented by all. Every success is learned by all.

  • Each of us contains the sum of the knowledge, intelligence, and creativity of our entire team.

  • We evolve and mutate constantly like an organism, identifying successful and problematic tactics and incorporating ideas from any source.

Who We Want

  • Designers who care as much about the invisible parts of the platform as the visible.

  • Polymaths and independent thinkers

  • Someone who is unlike anyone else on the team

What Product Designers are expected to do

  • Innovation - Don’t just follow orders. Question them. Question everything. Make improvements to how we work, not just our team, but the entire company.

  • Systems thinking - Design isn’t just how something looks — it’s how it works. You will care deeply about the problems you solve with design.

  • Craftsmanship - Deliver results with pace and quality

  • Teamwork - A culture where personal and team growth thrive and we become better every single week

  • Growth - Tenaciously improve yourself day after day at an exponential rate, and bring the company with you

Specifically, a Product Designer will

  • Guide the customer’s journey through a variety of interfaces, including web, mobile, and email

  • Design complex ‘expert’ interfaces for internal users

  • Build and evolve our visual identity through active iteration over the components in our pattern library

  • Collect feedback through formal user research and apply insights back into the design process

  • Become better every day by committing to learn new technologies and consider new solutions to old problems

Requirements

  • Experience designing for the web and for mobile

  • Experience working with software development teams w/ product managers and engineers

  • A strong background in UX and focus on usability

  • High degree of fluency with HTML, CSS

  • A commitment to collaborative design

  • Experience with Figma is a plus

What to expect if you join our mission

  • -- You will work on the most important problem - We always solve the most important problem and prioritize to make effective use of our time.

  • -- You will never do the same thing twice - Do it once, learn, systematize, automate, upgrade. We are exponential.

  • -- You will never work on a problem that should have been prevented - Prioritize, execute, and prevent future problems.

  • -- You will systematize or document most things - Creating systems checks if you really understand what you're doing, allows others to analyze for improvements, and means the entire team upgrades together.

  • -- You will make mistakes - That’s okay. This is how we learn. Prevent the mistake from happening again.

  • -- You will be empowered and encouraged to act with creativity - We have no limits. Every team member is empowered to upgrade our collective intelligence with new ideas. Act with moxie. Act with creativity. Act with inspiration.
