We’re hiring a UI designer

Do you like users? How about interfaces? Do you have opinions on designing interfaces for Mac and iOS users, and the experience to back them up? We’re looking for a full-time User Interface Designer and we’d love to talk to you.

What we’re looking for

Shiny Frog is looking for a seasoned, full-time UI Designer to join our small but mighty team. The position is remote or in our office in Dublin, Ireland, though we request that you are within the GMT+0 – GMT+3 time zones either way.

This designer should have experience crafting mobile (iOS) and desktop (macOS) application experiences and interfaces. Bonus points if you specifically have experience with native macOS apps. It’s a vintage skill nowadays, we know, but it sure comes in handy with what we’re working on.

What it’s like here

As a UI Designer at Shiny Frog, you will get to work on everything we create. Your contribution will shape the experience of millions of people worldwide, via Bear and other apps you haven’t heard of yet.

Now, while it goes without saying that you have to be good at what you do, the attitude is what will set you apart. Here’s what we’re looking for in a UI Designer:

  • Flexible: we’re a small, nimble, partially remote team and embrace all kinds of responsibilities, so roles are not set in stone
  • Opinionated: nobody here just follows orders (also because nobody technically gives them)
  • Good at giving and receiving feedback: we leave the ego at the door because what matters is the end result
  • Proactive: we care deeply about what we do and when we see opportunities or problems, we act
  • Problem solver: if we are not looking for a solution we don’t even bother complaining

Are you a fit?

If you think you have the paws to work on Bear, email us at jobs@shinyfrog.net with a link to your portfolio and a few lines telling us why you think you would be a good fit for our team. It might take some time, but we’ll do our best to get back to you.

We also want to be clear about something: regardless of gender, ethnicity, background or anything else, you are welcome and encouraged to apply. The more diverse the team, the better.

Shiny Frog is an unconventional company. It’s a small and tight group of individuals that feels more like long time friends than colleagues: you can voice any need or concern and you’ll always be listened to and helped.

Here, you have the chance to work on one of the best apps in its category (and cough also brace for what’s next cough). I would argue it is actually the best, but I’m biased. The work is demanding, but never rushed. It’s a place where things happen at the right pace to make sure they are always great and satisfying once they’re done. That’s why encryption took so long and why the web version is still under construction. And tables? Don’t mention them (especially to Matteo). Just keep an eye out in the near future.
