Job type: Full-time

Category: Design

Looking for a very experienced designer with an entrepreneurial mindset.

We offer:

  • Work on the cutting edge of the humanities field, working directly with professors from Harvard, MIT and other great institutions, building products for universities, archaeological sites and museums across the world.

  • An innovative product design process that keeps innovating.

  • An inclusive, supportive environment and a long list of benefits — including an unlimited vacation policy and a generous parental leave — from a company following the reputable Gitlab Handbook.

  • Work from anywhere. Stay at home, or go digital nomad: we don’t care as long as you have a fast, reliable internet connection, and get your work done.

  • Occasional company get-togethers in places like Sicily, Greece and Poland.

  • Design user experiences for AR and VR 🕶️


  • You’re a senior designer.

  • You have an online portfolio with links to live projects you’ve created and possibly a story of how you tackled the project.

  • You’re a minimalist, and every pixel of your design is intentional and can be justified.

  • You’re economical and know how to not reinvent the wheel. Utilising tools like Zapier, and web APIs in order to build MVPs rapidly

  • You know that “good designers copy, and great designers steal”. You’re unashamed of scavenging the best from Product Hunt, Dribbble, and co.

  • You’re a designer with an entrepreneurial mindset. You think both delightful and profitable.

  • You know how to use Figma. (If not, you’re confident you’ll figure it out in ~2 days.)

  • You balance business and user needs.

  • You know HTML/CSS like the back of your hand, and are okayish with JavaScript.

  • You are a great communicator. You have a knack for simplifying the complex.

  • You write well, and you’re pedantic about every word and punctuation.

  • You know that assumptions kill projects, and you bust them by doing effective, fast, and cheap user research.

  • You know when to do qualitative, and when to do quantitative user research.

  • You are open-minded, progressive, and accepting to all people.

  • Similarly you care about inclusive design, starting from accessibility, all the way to designing a product that makes people feel respected.

Very nice to have:

  • You’re a humanities geek. Or at least you have an appreciation in things like the arts, history, culture, museums, archeology.

  • Have worked in the non-profit and/or GLAM sector before

  • You know some JavaScript skills (not just simple jQuery).

  • You can pick up enough from dev discussions to tell when a technical decision will have a UX impact, and you champion the user/business in that conversation.

  • You know how to use Git, and have collaborated with developers using Git.

  • You’ve previously worked at both agency/freelance and in a product team.

  • You’ve created and worked with design systems

  • You have experience designing for AR, VR and mobile

  • You’re a natural people person, and love sitting down with, and interviewing users.

  • You have remote work experience, know how to structure your daily routine and know how hugely important written communication skills are.

  • You have a solid knowledge of Trello and Realtimeboard.

  • You have conducted A/B tests, and measure the impact of your work in terms of revenue, user engagement, reduced bounces, or any other proxy variable.

  • You have experience facilitating remote design sprints.

➡️Please apply via and as part of your application send us your email address, a link to your portfolio, and your interest in designing for cultural heritage.

We will then send you a link to a survey with questions. It’s kinda like a phone screen but more convenient. For this role we’re only accepting senior designers with an online portfolio of work. Ideally a personal side project or two as well showcasing your entrepreneurial side.

    strongDM is a customer-first company that has a rabid fan base. When was the last time you heard things like:

    Splunk's CISO Joel Fulton says "strongDM gives you what you can’t get any other way- the ability to see what happens, replay and analyze incidents."

    Chef's co-founder Adam Jacob says "strongDM takes the friction out of getting staff access to the systems they need."

    We built a technical product for technical buyers who have a high bar and low tolerance for sales spin. Customers love us because:

    The product rocks: strongDM fundamentally changes the relationship between InfoSec, DevOps, and end users. Enforce the controls security needs while making it easier to facilitate access.

    Customers trust us: we built a technical product for technical buyers. We do not use jargon. There is no alternative but to always be technically accurate. We are not afraid to admit product gaps.

    We’re real humans: we built a serious product without taking ourselves too seriously. Each member of the team is deadly good at their job, and yet we crack jokes on the phone with customers.


    As it says above :) Product is one of the three fundamental tenets of the strongDM business. It needs to work: seamlessly, effectively, and confidently. It’s written by engineers, for engineers. It’s outrageously difficult to build and yet must be the polar opposite to use.

    Welcome to the Product Design at strongDM! You’ll work with the Technical Account Management, Engineering and Support Teams (+ a Product Manager!) to define problems & goals, map user flows, create prototypes, and launch new features and products. You’ll be designing elegant interactions to manage a complex technical platform for technical users -- no easy feat. :)


    • Have a strong sense of ownership -- you’ll be our only Product Designer so if you can’t handle it, no one can

    • 3-8 years of experience with end-to-end product design

    • Experience designing for business and developer-focused products

    • Can solve complex problems with the right balance of flexibility, power, and ease of use

    • Are skilled in explaining your work, process, and decisions

    • Able to quickly identify user patterns of behaviors and can leverage them to make a seamless experience

    • Can think in terms of large systems but also zoom into smaller features -- no detail is lost on you but you won’t get stuck in the weeds

    • Fluent with a design tool like Sketch, Figma, Adobe XD, or Invision

    • Competent with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (enough to prototype, more than that is a big plus)

    • Have cross-platform design experience (Web, android, iOS, emails)


    • Industry-standard base

    • Extremely competitive benefits, including:

    • Medical, dental, and vision insurance

    • 401k, HSA, FSA, short / long-term disability, 3 month parental leave

    • 3 weeks PTO + standard holidays

    • Equity in a fast-growing startup

    No travel required
