Owl Labs is hiring a UI/UX Designer to join our diverse development team.  A great candidate has a proven track record designing and building beautiful and easy-to-use interfaces.  The ideal candidate has interest and experience in front-end design for both web and mobile platforms and can help bring today's proof-of-concepts to life.

Owl Labs' mission is to solve a problem we've all experienced: meetings suck, and they are especially painful for the remote participants on the other side of the call. Considering the rapid growth in remote and distributed work, this is a perfectly timed problem for Owl Labs to solve. The market is hungry for products and content that make remote and distributed work better.

With $22.3M funding from Spark Capital, Matrix Partners, and Playground Global, Owl Labs has created the Meeting Owl, a 360° smart video conferencing camera that sits in the center of the table and uses robotics algorithms to automatically highlight different people as they talk. After launching the product in June 2017, thousands of companies have purchased the Meeting Owl, saying it offers the most natural and inclusive meeting experience they've ever seen.

In this role, you will impact some of the company's most important product development goals.

To thrive in this role, you’ve got 7+ years of experience under your belt, a healthy obsession with human-centered design, and an appetite for continuous growth. You’re fluent in agency speak, you’re quick to lend your hard-earned expertise, and you dream in interfaces. Our approach to design requires constant collaboration, adaptability, and a vested interest in helping each other across the finish line. You’ll stay busy making friends and helping clients see the light through your latest concept, as well as contributing to prototyping, visual design, animations, and illustration across a variety of projects.

    • 7+ years of experience in digital product design (ideally in an agency or consulting environment).

    • Demonstrated mastery of UI/UX principles, best practices, and common design tools (think Photoshop or Sketch). Bonus points for interaction design skills (think After Effects, Quartz Composer or Framer.js).

    • A portfolio that reflects your strengths in both UX and visual design skills.

    • Fluent in translating stakeholder goals, user research, and complex user flows into simple UIs.

    • Addicted to staying ahead of desktop and mobile best practices, developments and trends in web, mobile and iOS design.

    • Communication pro, with the ability to deliver compelling design rationales in both client and internal contexts.

    • Comfortable with ambiguity and client briefs that lead to more questions than answers.

    For this role, we’re on the lookout for someone with a vested interest in helping other designers find their own groove. We named it “Design Lead” for a reason, and we invite you to take that literally. We do product design, so your comprehension of what it takes to get digital products out the door is our first non-negotiable.

You believe that good ideas can come from anywhere, and you actively support your team in making sure everyone is heard.
