Come build the future of Bear – We’re hiring a UI/UX Designer!

Are you an experienced designer of the way products look, feel, and behave? Do you have opinions on these topics and can you present them persuasively, ideally using full sentences and engaging visual aides? Can you work remotely and keep a healthy work-life balance? We hope so, because we’re looking for a UI/UX Designer!

What you’ll do at Shiny Frog

At Shiny Frog, you’ll help design the interface and interactions of everything we work on, namely Bear and any other apps down the road. Bear is an award-winning app used by millions around the world for notes, organizing projects, all kinds of writing, building personal wikis, and much more.

Who are you?

Of course, we’d love to see your best work in UI, UX, and product design, so please include relevant links in your application.

As for you, we’re looking for someone who is:

Familiar with Apple’s platforms: We use Apple’s native technologies to build apps from pixel-to-bit for the Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch
Versed in Sketch: Our design tool of choice
Located +/- 1 hour from the Central European Time Zone: The team is based in Italy and Ireland
From any ethnic/gender/background: We have customers from all around the world. We want our team to reflect that
Flexible: We’re a small, remote team and encourage helping outside our defined roles where possible (such as occasionally creating art for the App Store or our social media efforts)
A problem solver: Finding problems is good. Proposing solutions is even better
Opinionated: Why does your solution work?
Proactive: We care deeply about what we do and when we see opportunities or problems, we act
Good at giving and receiving feedback: We leave the ego at the door because the end result is what matters
Excited for demanding work that is never rushed: Work-life balance is quite important to us (after all, we were founded by three Italians). We have high standards for Bear, but we also take the time to get it right

How to apply

Simple: email us at and creatively include Bear in your subject line. Tell us a little about yourself and include links or examples of your favorite work.

We’re excited to hear from you! Show us what you got.
