Craft - Product Designer

About Craft

Craft is an Apple Design Award finalist, and Apple App of the Year (Mac) writing app available on iOS, MacOS and Web.

At Craft we are on a mission at re-defining productivity through software. We are building products which are fun - and effortless to use. Software which blends in the background, allowing individuals to focus on their tasks at hand - as it should be. This sounds easier than it is - as to achieve this one has to excel in every area of engineering & product design - from blazing fast performance, polished interactions, low energy usage & real-time, offline first sync - it’s not an easy task to achieve.

We’re looking for individuals who share this vision - and are willing to go the extra mile in order to achieve this.

About the Role

You’ll be working across platforms to define, design and implement new features - or improvements to existing ones. You won’t be alone - but will be accompanied by some of the best designers in this field.

Currently our design team is still small - meaning you’ll be able to have huge impact on the overall direction of Craft - and shape the future together with our users, and other members of the team.

This also means this isn’t your “traditional” product designer role - you’ll be expected to widen your horizon - from understanding user needs, technical limitations, company strategy - it’s a complex task. We’re committed to enabling the same feature set across all form factors - meaning we’re pushing the boundaries of what responsive design works, and how it can be translated across screen sizes and input types.

What we're looking for

We are looking for individuals who want to be at the bleeding edge of Product design. For most of the features we’re willing to build there just aren’t patterns out there we could efficiently take and implement - so innovative, out-of-the-box thinking is something you’ll need to use daily.

We’re looking for the following key traits for our next team members :

  • System thinking. What we're building is quite complex - and elements connect to each other in unexpected ways. Being able to see the full picture, while drilling down into details is a must.
  • Eye for detail. Our users use Craft a lot - so every minor imperfection or UX issue is amplified. You have to be able to spot even minor imperfections and propose effective solutions to these
  • Curiosity & Always learning. You're interested in new trends in your domain. You see keeping up-to-date with the latest platform standards and recommendations as a core part of your job.
  • Collaborative. We ship as a team - and great ideas & solutions come from every member of this team. You're honest with both giving and taking feedback - and take pride in delivering the best possible solution versus being emotionally attached to a single idea.
  • Great Communicator. Communicating your ideas in the form of writing, sketches / mockups or prototypes will be the key way of working together with your team. You understand the importance of this, and have the necessary skills to do so.
  • You can ship. Shipping is an extremely important part of the culture at Craft - you should be effectively be able to support this - meaning you have diverse skillsets from generating wild ideas to bringing those - once agreed upon - to production ready designs.
