Wethos curates and manages teams of freelance specialists for leading mission-driven organizations. We are building Wethos Teams, a platform that enables independent specialists to join or form temporary micro-agencies to tackle larger, more complex initiatives. We’re a fully remote company with a strong culture of trust, freedom and accountability. We’re growing our business every month, we’re well-funded, and we’re investing heavily in our platform.

Job description:

We’re looking for a Lead Product Designer for the new Wethos Teams platform. Our goal is to provide an integrated set of scoping, networking, project delivery, and payment services that make it incredibly easy for remote, independent specialists to collaborate on teams together. The platform spans functional areas such as professional networking, client relationship management, project scoping and management, and billing. We believe that by removing barriers for clients (finding qualified teams) and freelancers (doing work with their existing networks and finding others to work with), we can unlock a tidal wave of opportunities that are normally reserved for full-service agencies.

For that to happen, our platform has to coordinate workflows across many parties, and do it in a way that is consistent, simple and rewarding. Projects can be chaotic and stressful – communication and visibility are critical. As our lead Product Designer, you will be building experiences that help people come together and collaborate, cut through the chaos, and provide transparency. You’ll also help us understand where we can use learnings from our platform data to truly redefine what makes a great team and how teams successfully do work together.

We have some bedrock design considerations:

  • Our professional network is remote and on the move

  • Increasingly, they do more complex work on mobile devices

  • They collaborate using video

  • They are diverse, and accessibility is a critical piece of that

You’ll carefully consider each feature and interaction with these considerations in mind, and you may push us to try things that haven’t been done before.

You will collaborate with:

  • The CEO to understand the vision and the business goals of the platform

  • The Product Manager to understand platform requirements

  • The Development team to implement interactive designs as platform capabilities

You are good at:

  • Collaborating productively with a small, remote agile team

  • Designing and iterating on sketches, storyboards, information architecture blueprints and prototypes based on internal and external feedback

  • Translating wireframes into high fidelity interactive designs that follow style and brand guidelines

  • Using user flows, wireframes, site maps, customer journey maps, and other tools to guide the product development process

  • Working with the development team to guide implementation, and provide documentation as required

  • Helping developers identify and accumulate UI patterns for use in a toolkit

  • Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and/or other design tools

  • Ideally you can create interactive prototypes using HTML and CSS (and maybe a little bit of Javascript)

Benefits of working with us:

  • We’re remote-friendly (our team is completely distributed)

  • Salary transparency

  • We’re a small but highly skilled team working together to make a cool company into something game-changing

  • Unlimited vacation

  • 5 Sick Days

  • 4 Personal & Mental Health Days

  • 50% Coverage in vision, dental, medical

  • Work from home stipend after 6 months of full-time employment

You may have a background in:

  • Cooperative, multiplayer gaming platforms

  • Future of work platforms

  • Network-based social media/mobile platforms

  • Agency, resource management, or freelance platforms

You care about:

  • Diversity and inclusion

  • Leveraging data in an ethical manner

  • Accountability and transparency
