Buffer embodies a culture of continuous improvement - both in the product and in its people. We never settle for "good enough," recognizing that truly great products are built, refined and perfected over time. At Buffer you will work closely across teams to improve the current product and build the next set of amazing features for Buffer's 2+ million users.
What We're Looking For
You are passionate about making great products that enrich and improve the lives of real people. You have strong visual design skills, as well as the ability to create and implement your ideas on the web. You care about interaction design, typography and layout, and understand the complex nature of changing web technologies. You've designed for both the web and for mobile, and understand the possibilities and constraints that come with each platform. You feel comfortable iterating quickly, shipping new design work daily, and are thrilled by a fast-paced product cycle.
This role is very entrepreneurial and will need a lot of fast prototyping and iterating throughout the design process. Expect there to be a lot of fun challenges and bumps in the road, including both failing and winning experiments. Your work will be very fast paced and you'll be a key member of a small design team building Buffer.
What We Value
Clear communication, transparency, open-mindedness, empathy and patience are just a few of Buffer's cultural values. We are looking for a person who understands this culture and will thrive within a team of people passionate about self-improvement, honesty and openness.
Where You'll Work
You will work in the place that makes you happy, that inspires you daily, and helps you to become the person that you wish to be.
