About You

You’re a strong designer. You are passionate about design consistency across multiple touch-points and are adept at creating well-crafted, and engaging creative, as well as understanding the power of using motion in your concepts.

You understand how to make “great internet”. You understand what’s possible and interesting in the interactive world, and love making unique and engaging interactive experiences that are also intuitive and clear.

You have a strong user-centred approach. You understand how to design for accessibility, and collaborate with content design and user research to build the best solutions for our audience across platforms, devices and environments.

You see the whole picture. You build with end-to-end experience in mind, not just one web surface.

You’re a systems thinker. You see the big picture and know how to balance it alongside obsessing over the details, including building processes that allow others to easily self-serve.

You are an excellent written communicator. We’re also a 100% remote team, and writing is our primary means of communication at Zapier. You’re able to explain the rationale of your work, presenting to clients, cross-functional teammates and/or collaborators.

You are self-directed and process-driven. At Zapier, we believe in systems and processes that let us scale our impact to be larger than ourselves.

You’re solid at time management. You’ll juggle a variety of fast-moving communications projects, and as a part of a distributed team, you’ll be trusted to work with minimal supervision. As a part of a growing company, you have an opportunity to make a big impact, and you’re keen to build processes that’ll make your job more efficient over time.

 

Things You Might Do

Zapier is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

  • Report directly to our Creative Director, working collaboratively with other designers, our producer and strategist, as well as cross-functionally with marketing and product
  • Design high-quality beautiful web
  • If you want, you’ll have many opportunities to be a design generalist and design things that aren’t interactive
  • Design intuitive interface functionality, including interaction states, site architecture, user flows, and navigation
  • Lead design exploration of what web could look like within various directions, focusing on the creation of all of our logged-out pages.
  • Collaborate with design systems to design and implement components in Figma
  • Collaborate directly with engineers to realize and QA your work
  • Conduct usability testing, A/B testing and rapid prototyping
  • Help to develop our guidelines and best practices for a consistent experience across the web
  • Work collaboratively with UX Research, Product and Marketing to build solid user and brand experiences
  • As a part of Zapier's all-hands philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible.

About Zapier

Since 2011, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love.

We believe that there are jobs a computer is best at doing and that there are jobs a human is best at doing. We want to empower businesses to create processes and systems that let computers do what they are best at doing and let humans do what they are best at doing.

We believe that with the right tools, you can have big impact with less hassle.

We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done.

We believe in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment. All teammates at Zapier agree to a code of conduct.
