About this position

Primarily, you’ll be working with one of our product teams working on our core platform, interfacing directly with prospects and customers along the complete software development lifecycle. Secondly, you’ll mentor junior designers based out of our Recife office, and lead the expansion of our design practice across more countries in Latin America.

Your first 90 days will be:

  • Get to know the people, processes, and systems
  • Onboard into multiple projects in various stages
  • Add value with your perspective and experience leading projects in alignment with our design organization

What do I need to succeed?

In addition to a strong foundation in core design skills — type, color, layout — a background, or at least a demonstrable passion for these skills is necessary:

  1. Design leadership experience
    Contribute as an expert with deep knowledge in one or more product design verticals — and have experience leading people.
  2. Communication skills
    Arguably one of the most important skills a designer can have — excellent communication skills now more than ever, are a must. You’ll go far if you can demonstrate this!
  3. Proficiency with modern design tools and systems

          Our design system is in Figma — you don’t need to have experience            with it, but you’ll need to learn it quickly, so a track record of tool and            system competency is required.


Language Requirement:

  • English: Conversational
  • Portuguese: Fluent

What do I need to apply?

  1. Link to your website that includes recent, relevant case studies
  2. Cover letter (nothing formal!) with 3-5 sentences about your experience working in low-code environments.
